How to retrieve WCS of a vgPart

 

Vega Code Example

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

This example function illustrates :

  • How to get World coordinate position a  vgPart
  • How to retrieve the node type of a vgPart
  • How to test if a vgPart is a DCS node
  • How to get the X,Y, Z,H,P,R coordinates of a vgPart
  • How to use vgDeletePos
  • How create a vgPos instance
  • How to use a vgPos instance
