HyperMesh Tcl Query Command


Returns the averaged points for the internal bumper line as a series of x, y, and z values. It will use the front entities set using hm_wadlinessetentities and the corner_angle set with hm_wadlinessetparameters to determine the "Corner of Bumper" for both sides of the vehicle. If hm_wadlinessetbumper has been used, the outermost ends of those entities will be determined. All points for the internal bumper reference line will fit laterally between either the "Corner of Bumper" or the outermost ends of the bumper entities, whichever is larger. This is the "Edge of Bumper Test Zone."


The lateral distance, starting from the center line, at which the points will be placed.
The maximum rearward distance a point can be from the first point of contact with the bumper entities and still be used to find the height of the bumper entities. If the bumper entities have not been set, the front entities are used instead.
The maximum height allowed for the averaged points as measured from the origin (set using hm_wadlinessetaxes).

Incorrect usage results in a Tcl error. To detect errors, you can use the catch command:
if { [ catch {command_name...} ] } {
   # Handle error
