Container3D.modify_objects(callable)

Modify all objects in the geometry tree.

This method calls callable on every object in the geometry tree. The callable takes a single geometry object as an argument and should return None (in which case nothing happens), a new object to replace the original one, or an empty tuple (which will result in the removal of the original object).

Parameters:callable – a callable filtering each object in the tree
Returns:modified geometry
Return type:GeometryObject
Container3D.object_contains(object, path, c0, c1, c2)
Container3D.object_contains(object, point)

Container3D.object_contains(object, path, point)
Container3D.object_contains(object, path, mesh)
Container3D.object_contains(object, mesh)

Test if the specified geometry object contains a point.

The given geometry object must be located somewhere within the self geometry tree.

  • point (plask.vector) – Vector with local coordinates of the tested point.
  • c0 (float) – Longitudinal local coordinate of the tested point.

  • c2 (float) – Vertical local coordinate of the tested point.
  • mesh (plask.mesh.Mesh) – Mesh, which points are tested.
Returns:

True if the specified geometry object contains the given point.

If a mesh is tested, the return value is an array of bools.

Return type:

bool

Container3D.validate()

Check if the object is complete and ready for calculations.

This method is specific for a particular object. It raises an exception if the object definition is somehow incomplete.

Attribute Details

Container3D.bbox

Minimal rectangle which contains all points of the geometry object (in local coordinates).

Container3D.dims

Number of object’s dimensions (int, 2 or 3).

Container3D.role

Role of the object. Valid only if the object has only one role.

Container3D.roles

List of all the roles of the object.

Container3D.steps

Step info for mesh generation for non-uniform objects.

This parameter is considered only for the non-uniform leafs in the geometry tree. It has two attributes that can be changed:

num Maximum number of the mesh steps in each direction the object is divided into.
dist Minimum step size.

The exact meaning of these attributes depend on the mesh generator, however in general they indicate how densely should the non-uniform object be subdivided.

It is possible to assign simply an integer number to this parameter, in which case it changes its num attribute.
