Attribute Details

active : Bool

Returns or sets the object activeness.

Setting this on or off sets all children. Setting to True sets all the parents active too.

autoCalculateCG : Bool

Determines whether the center of gravity is auto calculated.

autoCalculateMass : Bool

Determines whether the mass value is automatically calculated based upon volume and material density.

autoCalculateMoment : Bool

Determines whether the mass moment of inertia is automatically calculated.

cg : Location (units=”length”)

Returns the object’s global center of gravity as a point.

color : Color

Determines the color assigned to the object when it is displayed in the modeling window.

The default color for parts is gray, but a different color can be assigned.

detectCollisions : Bool

Determines whether to detect collision.

It prevents parts in the model from overlapping and has been enabled by default.

ground : Bool

Returns or sets the object to be ground or immovable.

ip : Inertia (units=”massMI”)

Specifies the inertial properties of this object.

Resistance to change in motion (ixx, iyy, izz, ixy, izy, ixz).

mass : Double (units=”m”)

The mass of the object.

material : Attribute

The material of the object.

Every part in the model has a material assigned to it. The default material is steel, but a different material can be assigned.

modifiable : Bool

Determines whether the selected object can be edited.

morphable : Bool

Determines whether the selected object shape can be changed.

movable : Bool

Determines whether the selected object can be translated in the modeling window or has been locked in place.

name : Attribute

Returns or sets the name of the object.

It can be any text string, including spaces, although it’s best to avoid using the following characters: ” ‘ * ? and $.

While these characters are allowed, they could create difficulties when you export the model to other applications.

position : Attribute

Specifies the global transform as a Matrix44.

transparency : Double

Specifies the transparency of the object.

Allows you to change the transparency, according to a percentage. By default, objects are 0% transparent(opaque).

visible : Bool

Determines whether the object is visible in the modeling window.

Setting this on or off sets all children. Setting to True sets all the parents visible too.

volume : Double (units=”volume”)

The volume of the object in the assembly.

Property Details


Returns the list of features.

Method Details

getFeatures(self, type=None, **kwds)

“Returns a list of features based on specified filters.

param type:Filters the features based on type.
type type:FeaturePoint, FeatureArea, FeatureCylindrical..etc)
param **kwds:Additional attributes to consider while filtering.
returns:List of features that satisfies all the filter criteria.
rtype:list [FeaturePoint, FeatureArea, FeatureCylindrical..etc)]
