Show collision geometry

Description

show(geom) shows the collision geometry in the current figure at its current pose. The function automatically generates the tessellation.

show(geom,"Parent",AX) specifies the axes AX in which to plot the collision geometry.

example

ax = show(___) returns the axes on which you plot the collision geometry.

[ax,patchobj] = show(___) returns the graphic object patchobj that represents the collision geometry in the plot.

Examples

collapse all

Create a cylinder collision geometry. The cylinder has a length of 3 meters and a radius of 1 meter.

cyl = collisionCylinder(1,3);

Show the cylinder.

show(cyl)

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type patch.

Show the cylinder in a new figure, and return the patch object that represents the cylinder. Change the cylinder color to cyan by changing the RGB value of the FaceColor field in the patch object. Hide the edges by setting EdgeColor to 'none'.

figure
[~,patchObj] = show(cyl);
patchObj.FaceColor = [0 1 1];
patchObj.EdgeColor = 'none';

Figure contains an axes object. The axes object contains an object of type patch.

Input Arguments

collapse all

Collision geometry to show, specified as one of these objects:

Axes on which to plot the collision geometry, specified as an Axes object.

Output Arguments

collapse all

Axes displaying the collision geometry, returned as an Axes object. For more information, see Axes Properties.

Graphic object that represents the collision geometry, returned as a Patch object. For more information, see Patch Properties.
