Common Operator Info
FE WayRestraintOp


Constrain the distance between a pair of waypoints.


The Input Surface should contain a series waypoints. The series does not need to be complete before applying restraints, but the waypoints to be restrained should already be included.


An Envelope determines how much of the intended correction is actually applied.

The Anchor Name and Satelite Name specify the waypoints involved in this constraint. Only the satelite will be adjusted.

The Minimum Distance and Maximum Distance specify how far the satelite is allowed to be from the anchor.

The output Translation tells how much the satelite was adjusted. This makes it easy to move other objects that were meant to stay with the waypoint.
