You are here: Manipulators > 3DAffiner


Performs a 3D affine transformation on the coordinates of the feature.

An affine transformation preserves parallelism of lines and planes in geometry. That is, any lines or planes that were parallel before the transformation are parallel after the transformation. As well, if a number of points falling on a straight line or a plane are transformed, the resulting coordinates will fall on a straight line or plane in the new coordinate system.

Affine transformations include translations, rotations, scalings, and reflections.
