In the next release of SimLab Composer, the user will be able to generate and view edges.
This can be done by clicking the tool button show edges, which will automatically generate and show edges in the scene.
Generating edges, enables new picking modes in SimLab Composer. New picking modes in SimLab Composer will take the guessing out from moving objects and creating animations , which will make Mechanical designers and architects more comfortable using SimLab Composer.
Clicking the tool button place pivot enables the user to move the pivot of the selected object to a new location
For example the user can do this by changing the picking mode to end of edge, selecting the edge to be used, then clicking the correct mark.
This will place the pivot at the closest end of the picked edge, and will align the pivot’s z axis with the edge direction.
Which enables the user to open the cabinet around the correct edge.
