n(b)/n(c) - Mask Definition

n(b) = { yappMaskDef } : If a yappMaskDef object is added it will be used as a mask 
                         for the cutout.
n(c) = { [yappMaskDef, hOffset, vOffset, rotation] } : If a list for a mask is added 
                         it will be used as a mask for the cutout. With the Rotation 
                         and offsets applied. This can be used to fine tune the mask
                         placement within the opening.

There are several predefined masks or you can create your own custom mask definition.

The following are the predefined masks:

  • maskHoneycomb

  • maskHexCircles

  • maskCircles

  • maskBars

  • maskOffsetBars

  • maskSquares

To use a mask without modifiers n(b) you can simply list the mask name. For example maskHoneycomb.

To use a mask with optional modifiers n(c) you can specify a vector (list enclosed in []'s) as follows:

[mask name, hOffset, vOffset, rotation]

mask Name = the masks name from the predefined list or a custom mask you have created.
hOffset = the distance in mm to shift the mask in the X axis (horizontal).  
    This will change how the mask aligns with the opening. 
vOffset = the distance to shift it in the Y axis (Vertical)
rotation = the angle to rotate the mask in reference to the cutout.

for example [maskHoneycomb, 0, 3.3, 30]. This will select the honeycomb shaped mask with a vertical offset of 3.3mm and rotated 30 degrees.

you can only use n(b) or n(c) on the same object.

see Mask Definition for how to create your own masks.
