General question. What is the standard/conventional name for a component in the z direction
it depends a bit from the context…
here it would be plane or etage or floor… (How high a marble is over the ground)?
In Excel it would be the next sheet [or matrix or table ??]
Or I’d say, column, row, depth (Z)
I‘d go with Layer, Aisle or Slice, depending on the situation… though that question doesn‘t really have anything to do with Processing. And a Google search brought up a Ton of answers, so maybe one of those would be what you‘re looking for. Just Google „Rows Columns 3rd Dimension“.
As @Chrisir justly mentioned, context might be a factor to pick the right name. I tend to use level for the z equivalent of rows and columns.
Thanks for all your replies everyone, I’ve gone with stack for now, not sure why, but I feel layer might be more appropriate in the future.
I couldn’t resist…
