Box
2D/3D

Box[bnum, {lpnt1, lpnt2}] generates a box with two opposing corners located at local points lpnt1 and lpnt2, on body bnum. The sides of the box are aligned with the local axes of body bnum.

Box returns a list of Mathematica graphics primitives that are functions of mechanism location variables.
• In Modeler2D, the Box function is analogous to
Rectangle.
• In Modeler3D, the Box function is analogous to Cuboid.
• The Faces option can be given to determine whether to draw the box with filled polygons or as a wire frame. The default setting is Faces->True.
• See also: Bar, Facet, Wheel.

Further Examples

Load the Modeler2D package and define a simple model.

Box is used to draw several boxes on the crank body. The absolute location of all the graphics depends on the rules returned by SolveMech.

Change to the Modeler3D package and define a simple model.

Box is used to draw several 3D cuboids on the crank body.
