Description

This class represent the 3D vector (x, y, z). This class provides access to RLPy's internal 3D vector math library allowing 3D vectors to be handled easily, in a manner compatible with internal RLPy data structures. It also supports operators and provides some constants for your convenience:

Constant Description
RVector3.ZERO 3D zero vector: (0, 0, 0)
RVector3.UNIT_X 3D x unit vector: (1, 0, 0)
RVector3.UNIT_Y 3D y unit vector: (0, 1, 0)
RVector3.UNIT_Z 3D z unit vector: (0, 0, 1)
RVector3.UNIT_XY 3D vector: (1, 1, 0)
RVector3.UNIT_YZ 3D vector: (0, 1, 1)
