This subpanel creates three-dimensional torus surface primitives by specifying three nodes.
The nodes define the torus major and minor radii as well as its orientation.
Three inputs are required to create a torus using this method:
|•||The major center node defines the absolute center of the torus.|
|•||The minor center node defines the center of the circular cross-section of the torus.|
|•||The distance between the minor center node and the minor radius node defines the radius of the circular cross-section of the torus.|
The three nodes must define a plane and cannot be collinear. The torus is created perpendicular to the plane, but edge-on relative to the vector between the major center and minor center nodes.
