Vektoren werden überall in FreeCAD benutzt.

Vectors are used everywhere in FreeCAD.

Beispiel:

```v=FreeCAD.Vector()
print v3.Length
```
Length

Returns: returns the length of the vector.

Description: adds another vector to this one.

Returns: vector

cross(Vector)

Description: the crossproduct between this vector and another.

Returns: vector

distanceToLine(Vector1,Vector2)

Description: the distance between the vector and a line through Vector1 in direction Vector2.

Returns: float

distanceToLineSegment(Vector1,Vector2)

Description: a vector to the closest point on a line segment from Vector1 to Vector2.

Returns: vector

distanceToPlane(Vector1,Vector2)

Description: the distance between the vector and a plane defined by a point and a normal.

Returns: float

dot(Vector)

Description: the dot product between 2 vectors.

Returns: float

getAngle(Vector)

Description: the angle in radians between this vector and another.

Returns: float

multiply(Float)

Description: multiplies (uniform scale) a vector by the given factor.

Returns: nothing

normalize( )

Description: normalizes a vector (sets its length to 1.0).

Returns: nothing

projectToLine(Vector1,Vector2)

Description: projects the vector on a line through Vector1 in direction Vector2.

Returns: nothing

projectToPlane(Vector1,Vector2)

Description: projects the vector on a plane defined by a point (Vector1) and a normal (Vector2).

Returns: nothing

scale(Float,Float,Float)

Description: Same as multiply but lets specify different values for x, y and z directions. (non-uniform scale)

Returns: nothing

sub(Vector)

Description: subtracts another vector from this one.

Returns: vector

x

Returns: the x coordinate of a vector.

y

Returns: the y coordinate of a vector.

z

Returns: the z coordinate of a vector.
