# Convert Plane Type¶

## Description¶

This node converts between the two representations of 3D planes, Point-Normal representation and Transformation Matrix representation.

Not to be mistaken by the primitive mesh plane, planes in this context are mathematical objects that can be defined by a normal and a location or a transformation matrix since matrices can encode both the normal and the location of the plane.

## Options¶

**Point/Normal To Matrix**- This option will encode the input location and the input normal of the plane into a transformation matrix.**Matrix To Point/Normal**- This option will decode the input transformation matrix and return the location and the normal of the plane represented by that transformation matrix.

## Inputs¶

**Point In Plane**- A vector that correspond to the location of a point in the plane. (Only in the Point/Normal To Matrix option)**Plane Normal**- A unit vector that correspond to the normal of the plane. (Only in the Point/Normal To Matrix option)**Matrix**- A transformation matrix that represent the plane. (Only in the Matrix To Point/Normal option)

## Outputs¶

**Point In Plane**- A vector that correspond to the location of a point in the plane. (Only in the Point/Normal To Matrix option)**Plane Normal**- A unit vector that correspond to the normal of the plane. (Only in the Point/Normal To Matrix option)**Matrix**- A transformation matrix that represent the plane. (Only in the Matrix To Point/Normal option)
