Transforms (Rotate, Mirror, Translate, Stretch, ...) window

The window Transforms combines operations of Rotation, Mirroring, Translation and Stretching applied to elements,

The input of X, Y, Z coordinates of the point defining the transformation is common to both functions.

Translation control for elements of a thermal bridge Rotation control for elements of a thermal bridge Mirroring control for elements of a thermal bridge Stretching control for elements of a thermal bridge


Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.

Translate window

Translation control for elements of a thermal bridgeThe Translate window allows translation of one or many elements (selected the element list) by specific distance (dX,dY,dZ).

The window Translate can be called from the context menu of element processing (a sub menu Translate).

 + Translate Translates one or many elements (selected the element list) by specific vector (dX,dY,dZ)
 − Translate Translates one or many elements (selected the element list) by specific vector (−dX,−dY,−dZ)
 Duplicate Inserts a copy of currently selected element(s) into the element list.
Remark: Holding SHIFT-key while that button is depressed will additionally swap coordinates of the duplicate.

If several elements are selected their copies are appended to the end of element list retaining their order.
After being inserted all these element copies are marked selected thus being ready for further processing.
Remark: This function is identical to "Duplicate" in the context menu of element processing.

Duplicate and then Translate If this checkbox is marked, "Duplicate" is executed prior to each "Translate". The translation is then applied to the copies (duplicates) of elements selected earlier.

Remark: The functionality of "Duplicate and then Translate" provides a basis for the entry of complex components, especially those representing sloped constructions.


Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.

The translation is applied equally to all elements selected from the element list. Is no elements are currently selected both buttons "+ Translate" and "− Translate" are inactive.

Remark: Repetitive combinations of "+ Translate" and "− Translate"  can be used to revert translations.

Remark: Z-coordinates of elements in 2D or Layered 3D projects are calculated from layer's thickness. Therefore the input field dZ is inactive in such projects.

Rotate window

Rotation control for elements of a thermal bridgeThe window Rotate allows rotations of one or more element(s) selected from element list. The window is opened from the context menu of element processing (submenu Rotate).

Rot. Z Selects the rotation in the Z plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  X und Y coordinate values
Rot. Y Selects the rotation in the Y plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  X und Z coordinate values
Rot. X Selects the rotation in the X plane. The centre of rotation is defined by the input of  Y und Z coordinate values
X, Y, Z Coordinates of the rotation centre point
- 90° clockwise All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
+ 90° counter cw. All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
180° rotation All element(s) selected from element list are rotated around the rotation's centre.
 Rotate Selection of the rotation function of this window

Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.
 

The rotation is applied equally to all elements currently selected in the element list. If there are no elements selected all Rotation buttons are set inactive.

Remark: Rotation in Y or X plane is available only in 3D projects.

Remark: Element rotation are done only in 90 degrees steps to keep the orthogonal structure of the input model.

Remark. To rotate elements of belonging together it is advised to assign them to a group. This allows for later selection from context menu of element processing by group name easily.

Mirror window

Mirroring control for elements of a thermal bridgeThe window Mirror allows mirroring of one or more element(s) selected from element list. The window is opened from the context menu of element processing (submenu Rotate or Mirror).

Mirror X Selects the X plane as mirroring plane. The position of mirroring plane is defined by the input of  X coordinate value
Mirror Y Selects the Y plane as mirroring plane. The position of mirroring plane is defined by the input of Y coordinate value
Mirror Z Selects the Z plane as mirroring plane. The position of mirroring plane is defined by the input of  Z coordinate value
X, Y, Z Coordinates of mirroring plane
Mirror All element(s) selected from element list are mirrored by the mirror plane.

Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.
 

The mirroring is applied equally to all elements currently selected in the element list. If there are no elements selected all Mirror button is set inactive.

Remark: Mirroring by Z plane is available only in 3D projects.

Remark. To rotate elements of belonging together it is advised to assign them to a group. This allows for later selection from context menu of element processing by group name easily.

Stretch window

Stretching control for elements of a thermal bridgeThe Stretch window allows stretching (extending, lengthening) of one or many elements (selected the element list) located on one side of specified coordinate by specific distance. By entering negative distance the effect of "shrinking" (shortening) elements can be reached.

The window Stretch can be called from the context menu of element processing (a sub menu Stretch).

By X Selects stretching operation in X direction.
By Y Selects stretching operation in Y direction.
By Z Selects stretching operation in Z direction.
Remark: Not available for 2D and 3D-Layered projects.
Stretch−> Translates points of one or many elements (selected the element list) which coordinate values are larger then (are located right to) the From-Entry by specific interval by
<−Stretch Translates points of one or many elements (selected the element list) which coordinate values are smaller then (are located left to) the From-Entry by specific interval by
Shrink<− Translates points of one or many elements (selected the element list) which coordinate values are larger then (are located right to) the From-Entry by specific interval by
−>Shrink Translates points of one or many elements (selected the element list) which coordinate values are smaller then (are located left to) the From-Entry by specific interval by

Undo (Strg-Z)
Redo (Strg-Y)
Undoes (reverts) the latest action(s) in the given editing context
or
Redoes (reapplies) the action lately undone in the given context.

The shift is applied equally to all elements selected from the element list, but only restricted to coordinates located on one side of the From-Input value. If no elements are currently selected buttons are inactive.

Remark: Repetitive combinations of "+ Interval" and "− Interval" (in that order) can be used to revert the operation.

Important: Using negative "by" value will in most cases result in irreversible result!

Remark: Z-coordinates of elements in 2D or Layered 3D projects are calculated from layer's thickness. Therefore stretching in Z direction is inactive in such projects.
