Py5Vector.cross()#

Calculate the vector cross product of two 3D vectors.

Examples#

def setup():
    py5.size(100, 100, py5.P3D)
    py5.background(128)
    py5.translate(30, 70)
    py5.scale(50)
    py5.stroke_weight(0.1)
    v1 = py5.Py5Vector(0.7, -0.15, -0.7)
    v2 = py5.Py5Vector(0.7, 0.15, 0.7)
    py5.line(0, 0, 0, v1.x, v1.y, v1.z)
    py5.line(0, 0, 0, v2.x, v2.y, v2.z)
    py5.stroke(255, 0, 0)
    v3 = v1.cross(v2)
    py5.line(0, 0, 0, v3.x, v3.y, v3.z)

Description#

Calculate the vector cross product of two 3D vectors. If one of the vectors is a 2D vector, its z-value is assumed to be zero and the vector cross product is calculated normally. If both vectors are 2D vectors, the returned value will be the wedge product.
