Normalized
3D

Normalized is an option for Rotation that specifies whether vector in the returned {ang, vector} is to be normalized.
Normalized is also a setting for the Assumptions option for several Mech functions.

Normalized->False allows Rotation to return an axis of rotation that is not normalized.
Assumptions->Normalized allows functions to assume that the given axis of rotation is normalized, hence allowing them to avoid the burden of normalizing it again.
• The default setting for Rotation is Normalized->True.
• See also:
Unit.

Further Examples

Load the Modeler3D package.

The following cell converts a set of Euler parameters into a rotation angle and axis, both with and without normalizing the axis.

Similarly, other functions that take a rotation angle and axis may or may not assume that the axis is normalized.
