find the translation of a geometric object with respect to a directed segment.
translation(Q, obj, AB)
the name of the object to be created
In translation, the set S of all points of unextended space is mapped onto itself by carrying each point P of S into a point P1 such that the directed segment PP1 is equal and parallel to a given directed segment AB.
The directed segment AB is called the vector of the translation.
The command with(geom3d,translation) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
Define a stellated icosahedron where the core having center (0,0,0), radius of the circum-sphere 1
Define directed line segment A(0,0,0), B(5,0,0)
Translate ico1 with respect to the directed segment AB
