### Syntax

swplot.base(BV)

swplot.base(obj)

BV = swplot.base

### Description

swplot.base(BV) sets the basis vector for an swplot figure. The basis vectors can be used to define a non-orthogonal coordinate system for graphic objects.

swplot.base(obj) sets the basis vectors to the lattice units of a given spinw object obj.

BV = swplot.base returns the basis vectors stored in the swplot figure.

### Input Arguments

BV
Either a $$[3\times 3]$$ matrix of the new basis vectors or a spinw object where the new basis vectors will be the lattice units and the basis vectors are generated via spinw.basisvector.
hFigure
Handle of the [swplot] figure. Default is the active figure.
