#include <Inventor/nodes/SoAntiSquish.h>

enum Sizing {

SoAntiSquish::X fits the other two axes to match the X axis, whose size is unchanged

SoAntiSquish::Y fits the other two axes to match the Y axis, whose size is unchanged

SoAntiSquish::Z fits the other two axes to match the Z axis, whose size is unchanged

SoAntiSquish::AVERAGE_DIMENSION uses average of 3 scales in the matrix

SoAntiSquish::BIGGEST_DIMENSION uses biggest of 3 scales in the matrix

SoAntiSquish::SMALLEST_DIMENSION uses smallest of 3 scales in the matrix

SoAntiSquish::LONGEST_DIAGONAL accounts for shearing; transforms a cube by the matrix and then uses length of longest diagonal

This node removes nonuniform 3D scaling from the current transformation matrix when traversed by an action. It is used by draggers such as the SoTrackballDragger that need to stay uniformly scaled no matter where they are located in the scene graph.

The magnitude of the new scale is determined by the current transformation matrix and the sizing field. This node does not change the translation or rotation in the matrix.


SoSFEnum sizing
Determines which of the algorithms enumerated by the type Sizing will be used to select the new scale when the x,y, and z scales are not equal.

SoSFBool recalcAlways
If recalcAlways is TRUE, this node calculates its unsquishing matrix every time it is traversed. If FALSE, then this only occurs during the first traversal folllowing a call to recalc().


Creates an anti-squish node with default settings.

static SoType getClassTypeId()
Returns type identifier for this class.

void recalc()
Sets a flag so that the next time the node is traversed, it will recalculate its unsquishing matrix.

Action Behavior

SoGLRenderAction, SoCallbackAction, SoGetBoundingBoxAction, SoGetMatrixAction, SoRayPickAction
Appends the current transformation with a new matrix to create an unsquished result.

File Format/Defaults

AntiSquish {
recalcAlways	TRUE
