Activity: Setting and Viewing Basic Options

The objective of this activity is to set basic Graphic Viewer settings such as the Process Simulate System Root.

Note:

The path to all library objects is relative to the System Root. To enhance data management efficiency, studies from several projects can reference the same objects under the same System Root.

the nodes on the Object Tree viewer causes the displaying or blanking of entities in the Graphic Viewer.

Note:

When you click the box next to a node, it switches between a filled box and an empty box. When the box is fully filled, the object is completely displayed in the tree. When it is partially filled, the object is only partially displayed in the Graphic Viewer When you see an X in the box, no 3D data is available.

2. As mentioned previously, clicking the + or - icons next to a node expands or hides the next level, respectively. It is useful to expand the tree fully to display all levels, since some entities are nested within subcomponents. It is important to learn to identify the entity icons.

Note:

Expanding Trees:

One level of a tree can be expanded by clicking the + icon next to a node in a tree. The [*] key from the Number Pad area of the keyboard (which is [Fn] > P on an American laptop keyboard layout) can be used to expand all levels of the tree. We will also learn how to do this using the right-click menu in the next topic.

Collapsing Trees:

One level of a tree can be collapsed by clicking the - icon next to a node in a tree. We will also learn how to do this using the right-click menu in the next topic

Note:

Only other compound objects can be used as the parent for a new compound object.

2. Select Modeling > Create Part Resource > Create Compound Resource

A new CompoundResource1 object is created in the Resources folder of the Object Tree.

Note:

Whenever a new object is added to a study, it will be added to the bottom of the list of entities on the Object Tree viewer.

3. Pick the new CompoundResource1 object, press [F2], and enter My Compound Resource for the Name.

Note:

Nodes in the object tree (that are not read-only) can be renamed by first selecting them and second, clicking them again. A frame will appear around the selected text, which a new name can be entered

Note:

You can also press the [F2] key to begin renaming objects.

Creating and Working with Groups

Individual parts/resources or compound parts/compound resources can be grouped to establish additional hierarchy levels in the tree. If a group is selected and then shifted or rotated, the objects in the Graphic Viewer that are in the group will also be moved. Each object can also be shifted or rotated independently of the group.

Regular Mouse Movement Options

1. Hold down the Middle mouse button (i.e. press the mouse wheel like a button).

2. Moving the mouse left or right affects the direction of the zoom. To zoom out, move the mouse left; to zoom in, move the mouse right.

3. Hold down the Right mouse button.

4. Moving the mouse in any direction affects the direction panned, when continuous viewing is set.

5. Hold down the Middle and Right mouse button.

6. Moving the mouse in any direction changes the viewpoint.

7. To zoom to a specific area, hold down the [Alt] key and draw a box around a small area of interest with the Left mouse button.

Note:

The behavior of the regular mouse movement options can be modified by selecting Tools > Options, and choose an option on the Graphics Viewer tab.

The objective of this activity is to learn how to select objects and manipulate them in the Graphic Viewer .

Picking Entities

1. Select the Entity Pick Level. (Most likely it is set to Component right now).

Note:

(Most likely it is set to Component right now). Note: A short cut key to toggle

A short cut key to toggle between the two Pick Levels is the [F12] key.

2. Pick a non-kinematic object (i.e. a rails, lift assists, or tool base). Notice the whole thing is still highlighted.

3. Pick a kinematic object (i.e. a robot or human). Notice that only part of it is highlighted.

4. Select the a non-kinematic object (i.e. a rails, lift assists, or tool base)

5. Select Modeling > Entity Level > Load Entity Level

6. Notice that you can now expand into the object and select its entities.

7. Pick it again.

8. Select Modeling > Entity Level > Unload Entity Level

Activity: Additional Methods of Multiple Entity Selection

The objective of this activity is to learn additional methods of selecting multiple items.

Note:

An object can be selected in the Graphic Viewer by clicking the left mouse button and drawing a box around the desired object(s). If any part of the object(s) is in the window, it will be selected. Objects can also be selected by clicking them on the Object Tree viewer.

All selected objects can be deselected by clicking in the empty space around them in the Graphic Viewer . A selected object can be individually deselected by clicking it, either in the Graphic Viewer or in the Object Tree viewer, while pressing the [Ctrl] key.

Object Tree Object Selection

1. Any node can be selected by clicking it; previously selected nodes are then deselected. To select several separate nodes simultaneously, hold down the [Ctrl] key and click the additional nodes, as required. To select a range of nodes together, select the first node you want, hold down the [Shift] key and click the last node you want.

Note:

The Shift Key:

The [Shift] key enables you to select more than one entity in a consecutive list. Pick the first entity, then hold down the [Shift] key and pick the last entity in the list. This key works in the Tree viewer only. Selected entities are highlighted in green in the Graphic Viewer.

The Ctrl Key:

The [Ctrl] key enables you to select more than one non-consecutive entity. Hold down the [Ctrl] key and pick each desired object. This key works in the Tree viewer and the Graphic Viewer. Selected entities are highlighted in green in the Graphic Viewer.

2. Objects can also be selected from the Graphic Viewer. To select whole objects, make sure the Pick Level is set to Component. To select parts of an object, make sure the Pick Level is set to Entity.

Note:

Pick Level:

sure the Pick Level is set to Entity . Note: Pick Level: There are two main

There are two main Pick Levels in Process Simulate, Entity and Component. These levels determine what is selected when you click an object. If the Pick Level is set to Component and you click one entity of an object, the entire object becomes selected. If the Pick Level is set to Entity, then only that entity (that is, part of the whole object) is selected.

Multi-Selecting and Deselecting Objects in the Graphic Viewer

1. Press the left mouse button and draw a box around several objects in the Graphic Viewer. Note which objects turn green.

2. Deselect the entities by selecting the empty space around them in the Graphic Viewer.

Multi-Selection using the [Ctrl] key or [Shift] key

1. Pick an object in a tree.
