Box
- class compas.geometry.Box(frame, xsize, ysize, zsize, **kwargs)[source]
Bases:
Shape
A box is defined by a frame and its dimensions along the frame’s x-, y- and z-axes.
The center of the box is positioned at the origin of the coordinate system defined by the frame. The box is axis-aligned to the frame.
A box is a three-dimensional geometric shape with 8 vertices, 12 edges and 6 faces. The edges of a box meet at its vertices at 90 degree angles. The faces of a box are planar. Faces which do not share an edge are parallel.
- Parameters
frame (
compas.geometry.Frame
) – The frame of the box.xsize (float) – The size of the box in the box frame’s x direction.
ysize (float) – The size of the box in the box frame’s y direction.
zsize (float) – The size of the box in the box frame’s z direction.
