Group3D position incorrect in Java3D Mode
7 Posts

First, a big thank you to Prof. Esquembre for this fantastic software.

My problem (V. 5.0 beta) is like this:-

In the attachment, a "Group3D" is located at {0,0,0} and it contains two objects (the green disk and the small orange disk).

It is shown correctly in Simple-3D mode, but there is an offset along x,y,z when we switch to Java3D mode.

Objects that are not in the group are located correctly (another green disk and a shaft).

Hi Praveen,

I am afraid you are right. The Java 3D always caused us many problem, so we barely support it.

But I have asked the person who did it to try to have a look at it.

Will let you know.


PS: You are most welcome!
