.nodeTypes. Plane

The plane node describes a plane shape that extents in x and y direction.

HTML Encoding and Default Values

<Plane ccw='true' center='0,0,0' lit='true' metadata='X3DMetadataObject' primType='['TRIANGLES']' size='2,2' solid='true' subdivision='1,1' useGeoCache='true' ></Plane>




Constructor for Plane

Name Type Argument Default Description
ctx Object <optional>
null context object, containing initial settings like namespace


These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
ccw SFBool true X3DGeometryNode The ccw field defines the ordering of the vertex coordinates of the geometry with respect to user-given or automatically generated normal vectors used in the lighting model equations.
center SFVec3f 0,0,0 Defines the center point in the local coordinate system.
lit SFBool true X3DGeometryNode Specifies whether this geometry should be rendered with or without lighting.
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject X3DNode Field to add metadata information
primType MFString ['TRIANGLES'] Specifies the primitive type that is used to build the plane.
size SFVec2f 2,2 The edge lengths of the plane.
solid SFBool true X3DGeometryNode Specifies whether backface-culling is used. If solid is TRUE only front-faces are drawn.
subdivision SFVec2f 1,1 Defines the number of single elements that are generated to represent the plane.
useGeoCache SFBool true X3DGeometryNode Most geo primitives use geo cache and others might later on, but one should be able to disable cache per geometry node. Defaults to global useGeoCache setting parameter.
