Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB XYZ
Plane origin. Expected to lie within the Revit design limits IsWithinLengthLimits(XYZ) .
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB XYZ
First of the two unit vectors that define the plane. Must be orthogonal to the second one.
Type: Autodesk.Revit.DB XYZ
Second of the two unit vectors that define the plane. Must be orthogonal to the first one.


The parametric equation of the plane is S(u, v) = origin + u*basisX + v*basisY. The plane's normal is defined as basisX.Cross(basisY).


Exception Condition
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentException The input point lies outside of Revit design limits.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentNullException A non-optional argument was NULL
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentOutOfRangeException basisX is not length 1.0. -or- basisY is not length 1.0.
Autodesk.Revit.Exceptions ArgumentsInconsistentException The vectors basisX and basisY are not perpendicular.
