Converts Euler angles into a 3-by-3 matrix of direction cosines.
|Euler Angles specifies the Euler angles in radians.
|rotation order specifies the order of the axes to rotate the coordinates around. For example, X-Y-Z specifies the first, second, and third rotations are about the x-, y-, and z-axes respectively. Z-X-Z is the default order.
|Direction Cosines returns the 3-by-3 direction cosine matrix. Each element in Direction Cosines must be in the range of [-1, 1].|
|error returns any error or warning from the VI. You can wire error to the Error Cluster From Error Code VI to convert the error code or warning into an error cluster.|
You can express a rotation using direction cosines or Euler angles. The following equation describes the relationship between Euler Angles and Direction Cosines (assume the rotation is the default Z-X-Z order):
where R is the output 3-by-3 Direction Cosines matrix. (– < ), (0 ), and (– < ) are the input Euler Angles in radians.
