Hey there all, hope you’re all staying busy and healthy!
My question arises from troubles I’ve run into attempting to generate a cylinder source that “stands up” about the z-axis from a python script.
Since the .Direction option used for cone sources is unavailable for cylinders, how would I go about doing this?
I’d recommend using the Transform filter to rotate it. You can rotate 90 degrees around the X-axis.
What is the easiest way to do this with python if I already have a source called “cyl”, for example?
I also notice that the transform filter changes the coordinates of the points. How could I rotate the cylinder without losing the initial center coordinates?
I’d recommend getting familiar with using the Python trace. That is the easiest way to see how to do a GUI operation through the Python interface. The Transform filter also has a translate input.
