geom3d

  

parallel

  

return the line or plane passing through a given point or line that is parallel to a given line or plane

 

Calling Sequence

Parameters

Description

Examples

Calling Sequence

parallel(w, u, v)

Parameters

w

-

name of the object to be created

u

-

point or a line

v

-

line or plane; v can be a plane only if u is a point

Description

• 

If u is a point and v is a line (or plane), the parallel(w, u, v) function defines w as the line (or plane) that passes through u and is parallel to v.

• 

If u is a line, and v is a line, the parallel(w, u, v) function defines w as the plane that contains u and is parallel to v.

• 

Use the function geom3d[detail] for more details about the created object.

• 

The command with(geom3d,parallel) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
