API: feVectorPickByMethod and coordinate system

Creator
Creator

Hello!

 

I'm using the API function feVectorPickByMethod to enter a vector. I get the vector with base and direction as the result, as expected. But this vector is always in coordinate system 0, regardless of my choice in the CSys list of the dialog box. I expected that the vector will be transformed from the chosen coordinate system to coordinate system 0, but this is not the case.

 

Is there a way to achieve this? Thanks in advance

Hi,

Most of what FEMAP does is in CSys0.

You will need to add a line using "feVectorTransform" (HELP API > 3.15.2.1) to transform to another CSys.

Hi Astrium!

 

Thank you for your answer. I would gladly use feVectorTransform, but I don't know the destination CSys. It is not returned by feVectorPickByMethod.

 

Regards,

Simon
