Components for Body Orientation Measures
The body Orientation measure reports the orientation of the body LCS with respect to a selected reference coordinate system. You can measure one of three Euler rotation angles. Rotations are defined in this order:
Rotation 1 around the X axis of the reference coordinate system
Rotation 2 around the new Y axis
Rotation 3 around the new Z axis
The default coordinate system is the ground body WCS. You may also select a coordinate system on any body.
