Display parts editor

Postby Damon Nabors » Sun, Dec 07 2008, 5:51PM

The display parts editor is not my strong suite, but I was curious to know if there is a way to move and align parts, in the DPE. If I have 8 different stl files that make up one display object, is there a way to bring them in and then join them together so that when we try to use them as display objects, they can be rotated as one complete unit rather than having to move and align each individual component independently.

Damon,

I think you might have to bring them all into the cabinet editor and attach them, then save as an assembly make that assembly a hsf file or just leave it as an assembly

That doesn't work Gary. If you down load the Kegerator I just uploaded, you will see what I am talking about. That was saved as an esa file.

Set the "Operator" to Camera to move/rotate everything as a single entity.

Dan,

After pulling the rest of my hair out and talking with Justin. We found a better solution. Align all the parts in the cabinet editor and then select all parts. Then go to file>export selected and save all parts as one hsf. Then reload the new hsf file into the DPE and resave as a display object.
