Hello,

I could not find the Application Object feVectorRotate, which according to "Whats New in FEMAP 11.1.1" says a new function has been added.

Can anybody help?

Thank you.

Solved! Go to Solution.

This command appears to have missed the docs, it's pretty straight forward, it rotates a vector, by an angle, about another vector. The last two arguments return the rotated vector's new base and direction - here's a small example that rotates a vector located at 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 with a direction of 1.0, 1.0, 0.0 about the global z-axis. It returns the rotated vector and displays using User Defined Graphics the initial vector and the rotated one -
