# Transformation

class compas.geometry.Transformation(matrix=None)[source]

Bases: Data

Class representing a general 4x4 transformation matrix.

It is the base class for transformations like Rotation, Translation, Scale, Reflection, Projection and Shear.

The class allows to concatenate Transformations by multiplication, to calculate the inverse transformation and to decompose a transformation into its components of rotation, translation, scale, shear, and perspective. The matrix follows the row-major order, such that translation components x, y, z are in the right column of the matrix, i.e. M, M, M = x, y, z.

Parameters

matrix (list[list[float]], optional) – The 4x4 transformation matrix.

Attributes

Examples

>>> from compas.geometry import Frame
>>> f1 = Frame([1, 1, 1], [0.68, 0.68, 0.27], [-0.67, 0.73, -0.15])
>>> T = Transformation.from_frame(f1)
>>> Sc, Sh, R, Tl, P = T.decomposed()
>>> Tinv = T.inverse()
