V# main feature overview

V# comprises over 800 methods in over 15000 lines of code. The most important are:

Spatial point, edge, line, plane, triangle, circle, ellipse and arc operations:

  • Distances and perpendiculars between all supported objects
  • Parallel projections of all supported objects
  • Point reflection, reflection across a line, reflection through a plane of all supported objects
  • Coordinate transformation, scaling, moving, arbitrary center rotation of all supported objects
  • Tests: Intersection, containment, collinearity, coplanarity, overlap and other
  • Triangle: barycentric and trilinear coordinates
  • Triangle: slice by plane
  • Triangle: many special points, circles and lines (e.g. in-, ex- and circumcircles, inscribed ellipse)
  • Plane: analytic, coordinate, normal coordinate and parametric form
  • Circles: construct from three points, tangents

Pointsets
