ScaleFeatureInput Object

Derived from: Base Object
Defined in namespace "adsk::fusion" and the header file is <Fusion/Features/ScaleFeatureInput.h>


This class defines the methods and properties that pertain to the definition of a scale feature.


Name Description
classType Static function that all classes support that returns the type of the class as a string. The returned string matches the string returned by the objectType property. For example if you have a reference to an object and you want to check if it's a SketchLine you can use myObject.objectType == fusion.SketchLine.classType().
setToNonUniform Sets the scale factor for the x, y, z directions to define a non-uniform scale. Calling this method will cause the isUniform property to be set to false. This will fail if the inputEntities collection contains sketches or components.


Name Description
inputEntities Gets and sets the input entities. This collection can contain sketches, BRep bodies and T-Spline bodies in parametric modeling. It can contain sketches, BRep bodies, T-Spline bodies, mesh bodies, root component and occurrences in non-parametric modeling. If the scaling is non-uniform (the isUniform property is false), this collection cannot contain sketches or components.
isUniform Gets if the scale is uniform.
isValid Indicates if this object is still valid, i.e. hasn't been deleted or some other action done to invalidate the reference.
objectType This property is supported by all objects in the API and returns a string that contains the full name (namespace::objecttype) describing the type of the object.

It's often useful to use this in combination with the classType method to see if an object is a certain type. For example: if obj.objectType == adsk.core.Point3D.classType():
point Gets and sets the origin point of the scale. This can be a BRepVertex, a SketchPoint or a ConstructionPoint.
scaleFactor Gets and sets the scale factor used for a uniform scale. Setting this value will cause the isUniform property to be set to true.
targetBaseFeature When creating a feature that is owned by a base feature, set this property to the base feature you want to associate the new feature with. By default, this is null, meaning it will not be associated with a base feature.

Because of a current limitation, if you want to create a feature associated with a base feature, you must set this property AND call the startEdit method of the base feature, create the feature, and then call the finishEdit method of the base feature. The base feature must be in an "edit" state to be able to add any additional items to it.
xScale Gets the scale in X direction.
yScale Gets the scale in Y direction.
zScale Gets the scale in Z direction.
