13 Transformations

Using Archimedes Geo3D you can define the usual geometrical transformations:

The transformation as an object is defined through geometrical objects, i.e. a reflection on a point through a point. To actually transform a point you have to select the point and the transformation-object, and then click on the point-symbol.

While this might not seem intuive at first, it has the advantage that you have the same procedure for every transformation.

Currently only points, lines and segments can be transformed. To transform more than one object, select all objects to be transformed and the transformation last. Then press the point-button (or alt-p). Selected objects that are not points, lines or segments will be ignored.

Select an arbitrary set of objects and make sure that the last object is a transformation, then press the point-symbol. All points, lines and segments will be transformed, all other objects ignored.
