How do I create plane by code?

Hi,

I would like to ask, how do I create a plane by code? I would like to create this plane before I am creating the whole model and be able to move it to this plane.

Thank you.

createinstance

you can assign the created plane directly to a declared treenode variable and move objects into it or create other objects in this reference.

using Containers

Hi,

thanks for you answer, I would go with the way of creating the instance, I tried, but an error occurs. I am using this line of code:

Object plane = createinstance(library().find("?Plane"), model()); 

Do you know where the mistake is?

Thank you

That code is looking for a node called "Plane" under the library() node. There is no node called "Plane" under the library() node.

The Plane object shown in the Library view is an instance of the VisualTool class.

You could create an instance of that class directly:

createinstance(library().find("?VisualTool"), model());

or you could create a copy of a pre-configured instance (which is what happens when you drag in an object from the Visual section of the Library view):

createcopy(node("MAIN:/project/exec/globals/visuallibrary/Plane"), model());

The problem occurs when I create the plane manually and then place the whole model on the container and I am trying to assign it together and then the model is de-centered, but its location are set up in the code and I do not want to re-locate them by hand.
