Class Method Details

.linear_combination(weight1, vector1, weight2, vector2) ⇒ Geom::Vector3d

Creates a new vector as a linear combination of two vectors. This method is generally used to get a vector at some percentage along a line connecting the two vectors. The weights should sum up to 1 if you want to get a on that line. The weights should be between 0 and 1 if you want to get a vector between the two vectors.

Parameters:

Returns:
