Keywords:
  • bars
  • grid

An infinite grid shape, along two axes.

Parameters

  • Coord Type: allows the shape to be used in a 2D context.
    • 2D:
    • 3D:
  • Cross Section Shape: choose the shape of the bars of the grid. Not available in 2D mode.
    • Circle:
    • Diamond:
  • Axis: choose which axis the grid should face.
    • X:
    • Y:
    • Z:
  • Spacing: spacing between the bars of the grid. If this value is very small and the `Thickness` is high enough, the bars can merge into a solid surface. But if it is set to zero the grid will disappear due to a calculation error.
  • Axis Offset: shifts the grid forwards or backwards along the `Axis` that it is facing. Not available in 2D mode.
  • Offset: shifts the grid along its plane.
  • Thickness: the thickness of the bars.
  • : advanced parameter that should usually just be set to `Context`
