The vector geometry data type is introduced as a way of moving or translating geometry from one location in space to another.
- [Instructor] To perform certain common…3D modeling commands,…such as Move, Rotate, and Mirror,…Dynamo requires geometry data types called vectors…and plains as inputs.…First, we'll cover what vectors and plains are…and how they're constructed.…Then we'll apply them to Dynamo's translate,…rotate, and mirror notes.…We begin this video with two polygons,…a square and a triangle.…Both of these shapes are constructed…with a list of points that are fed into the polygon…by Points node which we covered earlier in the chapter.…
We also have a list create note…that contains these two polygons in a list.…Now you're probably already used to using the Move command…in AutoCAD or Revit.…In Dynamo, the note that performs the move function…is called translate.…We can find the Translate node in the Geometry library,…under the Modifiers, Geometry section.…Of the few nodes named Translate,…I'm going to select the one…that just takes direction as an input.…This Translate node takes two inputs.…Geometry, which is the easy part,…so I'll go ahead and plug in our square polygon,…
