Description

The FHPort tool creates a FastHenry port between two FHNode objects.

EM FHPort Example.png

FastHenry FHPort


Usage

The FHPort object is based on the two existing FHNodes between which it will create a FastHenry port.

  1. Select two FHNode objects
  2. Press the EM FHPort.svg EM FHPort button, or press E then P keys.

Remarks:

  • The first node you select is the positive node of the port, and the arrow that is the shape of the FHPort object will point in this direction.

Properties

  • DataNodePos: the positive FHNode of the FastHenry port
  • DataNodeNeg: the negative FHNode of the FastHenry port

Scripting

See also: FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

The FHPort object can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following function:

port = makeFHPort(nodePos=None,nodeNeg=None,name='FHPort')
  • Creates a FHPort object.
  • nodePos is the positive node FHNode object of the FastHenry port.
  • nodeNeg is the negative node FHNode object of the FastHenry port.
  • name is the name of the object

Example:

import FreeCAD, EM

fhnode_p = EM.makeFHNode(X=1.0,Y=0,Z=0)
fhnode_n = EM.makeFHNode(X=0,Y=1.0,Z=0)

fhport = EM.makeFHPort(fhnode_p, fhnode_n)
