This macro permits the creation of the points and the lines which are the sides of a plate of rectangular cross-section, i.e. the sides of a parallelepiped.

After the execution of this macro, to complete the construction of the parallelepiped, the user will have to build the faces and build the volume.


  • Axis of the XYZ1 coordinate system, which is perpendicular to the plate cross-section; in other words, the axis along which the thickness of the rectangular plate is considered
  • Values of the three coordinates, expressed in the XYZ1 coordinate system, of the center of the parallelepiped
  • Thickness, the width and the length of the rectangular plate, expressed in the length unit of the XYZ1 coordinate system


  • Points of the rectangular plate
  • Lines of the rectangular plate
