The Argument of Obliquity property of an object represents the orientation of the object's rotation axis around a reference axis determined by the Rotation Relative to property. If Rotation Relative to is set to the Simulation Grid, this reference axis is the y-axis of the Simulation Grid. If Rotation Relative to is set to the Orbital Plane, the reference axis is the object's orbital axis, defined by its Inclination and Longitude of the Ascending Node.

Property Details

Location

The Argument of Obliquity property is located in the Rotation section of the Motion tab of an object's properties panel.

Units

Argument of Obliquity is an angle, and can be viewed or edited using the following units:

  • Radians (rad)
  • Degrees (°) = (180/π) rad

Argument of Obliquity is defined in the range -180° to 180°, or -π to π rad.
