Orientating a 3D graphic representation

show all pictures

CaRIne allows to orientate in a precise way a 3D graphic representation via the orientation inspector window. The orientation of graphic representation can be made in a quick and approximate way with the help of the mouse.

With the Orientation inspector windows, it is possible to rotate or translate in a precise way a 3D graphic representation around/along several axis defined from :

  • the building reference frame (Rb),
  • the screen reference frame (Rs),
  • the normal of the current (hkl) plane,
  • and the current [uvw] direction.
