## create
This action creates a new database plane object. ## Parametersnone ## ReturnsThis action returns a new pw::Plane object. ## getBoundaryCount
This action gets the number of boundaries of the plane ## Parametersnone ## ReturnsThis action will always return 0, since a plane has no boundaries, but is included for symmetry with the pw::Surface type. ## getBoundary
This action gets a surface boundary. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action always fails since a plane has no boundaries, but is included for symmetry with the pw::Surface type. ## getBoundaries
This action gets all surface boundaries. ## ParametersThis action has no parameters. ## ReturnsThis action always fails since a plane has no boundaries, but is included for symmetry with the pw::Surface type. ## getInteriorCurves
This action gets all the curves that are at least partially on the surface. ## ParametersThis action has no parameters. ## ReturnsThis action returns a list of pw::Curve objects. ## setConstant
This action sets the plane to represent a constant x, y, or z value. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns nothing. ## setPoints
This action sets the plane by giving three points that plane will pass through. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns nothing. ## setCoefficients
This action sets the plane by giving the coefficients of the plane equation Ax + By + Cz + D = 0. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns nothing. ## getPosition
This action gets the position in the defining space of the plane at the given parameter. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns a point giving the position on the surface (may be in the form “u v dbentity”). ## getXYZ
This action gets the position of the plane in model space at the given parameter. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns an XYZ vector. ## getPlane
This action gets the plane coefficients. ## Parameters
## ReturnsThis action returns the plane as list of 4 coefficients. If the -D option is specified, the result can be treated as a pwu::Plane object. |

This action creates a new database plane object.

pw::Plane create

This action gets the number of boundaries of the plane

$plane getBoundaryCount

This action gets a surface boundary.

$plane getBoundary index

A boundary is reference to either a database curve or the edge of a database surface.

This action gets all surface boundaries.

$plane getBoundaries

This action gets all the curves that are at least partially on the surface.

$plane getInteriorCurves

This action sets the plane to represent a constant x, y, or z value.

$plane setConstant ?< -X | -Y | -Z >? value

This action sets the plane by giving a point that plane passes through and a normal vector.

$plane setPointNormal point normal

This action sets the plane by giving three points that plane will pass through.

$plane setPoints point1 point2 point3

This action sets the plane by giving the coefficients of the plane equation Ax + By + Cz + D = 0.
