Description

This node defines a uniform 3D scale about the origin relative to the previously defined units. The default units for all data are meters. Adding a units node with the value INCHES will have the same effect as adding an SoScale node with the scaleFactor of (.0254, .0254, .0254). Any subsequent SoUnits node will take the previous units into account. When building a composite object out of a bunch of pieces, it would be a good practice to add an SoUnits node at the beginning of each of the pieces, under an SoSeparator node, to make sure all the pieces fit together with the same scale.

Fields

SoSFEnum units
Defines the current unit.

Methods

SoUnits()
Creates a unit conversion node with default settings.

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

Action Behavior

SoGLRenderAction, SoCallbackAction, SoGetBoundingBoxAction, SoRayPickAction
Accumulates the scale that is the ratio of the size from the previous unit to the current unit into the current transformation.

SoGetMatrixAction
Returns the matrix corresponding to the units scaling.

File Format/Defaults

Units {
units	METERS
}
