There are two types of cutouts: “
rectangles” and “
circles” (actually there are three but the third one ("
polygons") applies only to
grills). Rectangles can be created in two ways, either with the corners at coördinates or with coördinates in the center of the rectangle. For “
circles” the coördinates are always the center point.
For each plane (face) there is an array in which you can specify per line where cutouts should come, what the
originof such a recess is (for rectangles), what shape the recess should have (
circle) and, if applicable, the
angle. Depending on the “
plane”, the first element is the position on the
X-axis(lid-, base-, left- or rightPlane) or the
Y-axis(front- or backPlane) and the second element is the position on the
Y-axis(lid-, base-, left- or rightPlane) and the
Z-axis(front-, back-, left- or rightPlane). The third element always indicates the
widthof the rectangle or the
diameterof the circle. The fourth element is, again depending on the plane, the
width(lid- or basePlane) or the
height(front-, back-, left- or rightPlane) of the rectangle.
In the next chapters we will show examples of the cutouts arrays for every plane.
