translate

Move shape to new location

Description

example

c = translate(shape,locationpoints) moves the shape to a new specified location using a translation vector.

Examples

collapse all

Create a polygon using antenna.Polygon with vertices at [-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0] and view it.

p = antenna.Polygon('Vertices', [-1 0 0;-0.5 0.2 0;0 0 0])
p = 
  Polygon with properties:

        Name: 'mypolygon'
    Vertices: [3x3 double]

show(p)
axis equal

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Mesh the polygon and view it.

mesh(p,0.2)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type patch.

Move the polygon to a new location on the X-Y plane.

translate(p,[2,1,0])
axis equal

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains 2 objects of type patch. This object represents PEC.

Input Arguments

Shape created using custom elements and shape objects of Antenna Toolbox, specified as an object.

Example: c = translate(rectangle1,[2 1 0]) where rectangle1 is created using antenna.Rectangle object.

Translation vector, specified as a vector.
