PlateModel Object

Top  Previous  Next

Description

The PlateModel object holds all the settings for the plate model and contains a list of Plates called Spacecraft.PlateModel.Plates[].Users have the ability to add Plates or a box of Plates to a PlateModel to easily model a Spacecraft's geometry. Users can query values such as a PlateModel's SRP force, torque, or incident area throughout the duration of the Spacecraft's propagation. Once the PlateModel is defined, users can visualize their flat plate model in Mission Views to visually confirm the plate configuration, including the plates' size, location, and normal direction. See the Flat Plate Model guide for more information.
