Move two different models around in the same expirence.

Move two different models around in the same expirence.

I know that you can place several models in the same expirence but you are not able to move them individually. 

 

Does any of you know if there is some way to archive this?

Re: Move two different models around in the same expirence.

just to clarify:

1.) you have an experience which use a spatial target for a view - (currently functionality)

2.)the view you have different models (currently functionality)

3.) you want  to place the models on differnt postion (respectivey on differnt surfaces) right.

- so far I know is this still not possible. Actually what we need is to have more than one spatial targets for a  particular view, but so far I know this is not implemented yet.

I think such functionality we can find in some Arkit (IOS) or ARCore (android)  apps - but also for the HoloLens. Currently in Studio/ Vuforia View  you will be able set by clicking of a point the position of the main coordinate system  ,and  then you can move the models but not by drag /drop but you have to change the property of xyz,rx,ry,rz e.g. using a slider or any  scripts.

I do not think that using sliders is the best way but here I want to show the principle way

First you can select the spatial postion for the model (first one) and then via some help elements you can move the second model relative to the first one.

For example you can use some help models. So  you have some kind of flat  chessboard (as helpmodel) where the different  fields are defined as modelitems. Then you can then set the global position of the chessboard and then by clicking some of the help model items you can define the position of the differnt model ( so believe this will requires some work for coding with javascript) only as idea.

Hi,

I am not really sure what is the issue.

We could place more then one models into an experience project / in particular view

So far I see each of them is in resplect to the main coord system and could be moved when you use the xyz,rx,ry,rz preperties.

Additionally you can define a model items for each model, where you can move e.g. also particular components

so, we can see that 2 different models a placed in the Home view in this experience

we can move the both models independently 2018-11-07_14-39-18.jpgAnd we can for each model define a modelitems where we can move the components.

Re: Move two different models around in the same expirence.

Can you share an example as I'm not sure what you mean that you can not move them individually?

 

You can place multiple Model widgets, assign them different (or the same) resources and then change their coordinates and scale at will. I have done this many times.

Re: Move two different models around in the same expirence.

The problem is not how to move them seperatly within vuforia studio.

 

Lets take this example: I place a sphere and a box as two different model items in my view. I use a spatial target as my target widget.

 

I now open the expirence using my iphone in the view app. When I translate the sphere the box does not stay in place but keeps it placement in relation to the sphere.

Re: Move two different models around in the same expirence.

This is correct. You can not drag individual models around in Spatial mode, all items will stay relative to each other. If you wanted to do this you would need to use sliders or some other control to change the position values of a model.

Re: Move two different models around in the same expirence.

Thank you for your reply. The Sliders might work but as you say it is not really the optimal solution.
