I am trying to merge scenes and align objects within that scene. I'm trying to make something like russian dolls (shapes within a product that can be toggled on and off, as well as multiple caps that can be chosen). I have all the individuals components created in solidworks and am looking for a way to align things correctly and not just drag things around with the XY axis
Besides dragging objects around, you can set the translation of the objects in their transform operator.Select an object, open the transform operator in the right properties panel, and you can set the translation of that object then.
To clarify; I'm trying to merge two scenes together into a new third scene and align/mate (for instance) a face on one scene onto a face on another scene. In a program like Solidworks they use the term "mate", but I cannot find a similar mate functionality in Clara.io
We don't have a mate functionality in the v1 editor, but we have a similar functionality in v2 apihttps://clara.io/docs/tutorial-demo-AttachObject.html, not sure if that's what you are looking for.
How do we use the scene editor on clara.io to use this attach object functionality?
This is functionality only works in v2 player, and you need some js coding experience to work with the v2 api.Please check the v2 api docs for more details. https://clara.io/docs
