Returns whether a point is inside a test zone by taking in the coordinates of the zone boundary.

HyperMesh Tcl Query Command


Returns whether a point is inside a test zone by taking in the coordinates of the zone boundary returned by hm_wadlinesgetadulttestzone and hm_wadlinesgetchildtestzone, along with the impact direction of the impact point. The impact point and zone boundary are projected to a plane perpendicular to the impact direction, then tested to find if the projection of the impact point is within the polygon defined by the zone boundary.

num_pts should always be provided before the points option.


The normal direction x/y/z of the plane to which the zone boundary and test point is projected. This is expected to be along the impact direction of the impact point.
The number of points defining the zone boundary. Must be provided before points.
The ordered x/y/z coordinate values of all points of the zone boundary.
The x/y/z coordinates of the impact point to be tested.
Test points that are within this tolerance to the zone boundary are also returned as inside the zone boundary. Default 1e-6.


To test if design point 38 is inside a zone boundary:
set id 38
set pos [hm_getvalue designpoint id=$id dataname=position]
