Performs a second-order conformal transformation on the feature's geometry. Depending on the input geometry, a 2D or 3D transformation is performed. Transformed features are passed to the Transformed port.

This transformation is non-linear. Thus, to maintain the integrity of the data, we only perform transformations on the points defining geometries. For example, a 4-point quadrilateral polygon will remain a 4-point polygon after transformation, although a pure transformation would convert its lines into curves. If curve approximates from lines are desired, use a Densifier before this transformer.

Due to the non-linear nature of the transformation, true 3D geometries (such as Box and EnclosedSurface) are not supported by this transformer. All true-3D geometries are passed to the Invalid port.



Editing Transformer Parameters

Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
