Rotate mesh about coordinate axes

Since R2020a



rotatedMesh = rotate(mesh,orient) rotate the mesh object by an orientation, orient.


collapse all

Create an extendedObjectMesh object and rotate the object.

Construct a cuboid mesh.

mesh = extendedObjectMesh('cuboid');

Rotate the mesh by 30 degrees around the z axis.

mesh = rotate(mesh,[30 0 0]);

Visualize the mesh.

ax = show(mesh);

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type patch.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Extended object mesh, specified as an extendedObjectMesh object.

Description of rotation for an object mesh, specified as:

  • 3-by-3 orthonormal rotation matrix

  • quaternion

  • 1-by-3 vector, where the elements are positive rotations in degrees about the z, y, and x axes, in that order.

Output Arguments

Rotated object mesh, returned as an extendedObjectMesh object.
