class main_menu.mesh.prism.controls.normal(path, service)#

Enters the prism normal controls menu.

bisect_angle(*args, **kwargs)#

Is required for growing prisms out of sharp interior corners. When the value of this angle is set, the normals are automatically projected onto the plane bisecting the angle between faces having an interior angle less than this angle.

compute_normal(*args, **kwargs)#

Computes the normal for the specified face zone.

direction_method(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies whether the prism layers should be grown normal to surfaces or along a specified direction vector.

direction_vector(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies the direction vector for prism extrusion when the uniform method is selected for direction-method.

ignore_invalid_normals(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables you to ignore nodes that have poor normals.

max_angle_change(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies the maximum angle by which the normal direction at a node can change during smoothing.

orient_mesh_object_face_normals(*args, **kwargs)#

Enables you to orient the face normals for mesh object boundary zones. Specify the mesh object, region or material point as appropriate, and specify whether walls, baffles or both comprising the prism base zones are to be separated and oriented.

orthogonal_layers(*args, **kwargs)#

Specifies the number of layers to preserve orthogonality. All smoothing is deferred until after these layers.
