Positioning 3D Nodes
- Click the Layer Transform button and select an element from the Stage view.
A bounding box appears around the element and the layer is highlighted in purple in the Top and Side views.
- To select a node in the 3D object, select Windows > 3D Schematic.
The 3D Schematic view displays. You can change how the hierarchy appears in this view using the following commands:
- Zoom In/Out: Increases (zoom in) or decreases (zoom out) the magnification. You can also press 1 to Zoom Out or press 2 to Zoom In.
- Reset Zoom: Restores the magnification to its default setting.
- Reset Pan: Resets the 3D node tree to its default position.
- Reset view: Restores the 3D node tree to its default position and magnification.
You can reposition the 3D node tree in the view by pressing Spacebar and dragging the cursor inside the 3D Schematic view.
- Select one of the nodes of the 3D object.
The selected node appears highlighted in green and a bounding box appears.
- You can also select the nodes using Ctrl+click (Windows) or ⌘+click (Mac OS X). To select all the nodes, right-click the 3D Schematic view and select Select All.
By default, the basic node structure appears in the 3D Schematic view.
- Using the bounding box, you can make the following changes to the node:
- Its position in the 3D space
- Its Yaw, Pitch, Roll rotation (use the pivot point to change the arc size)
- Its dimensions along the X, Y, and Z-axis
