4.5 Virtual Points

Adding Virtual Points

Virtual points can be added by clicking the +VP button in the toolbar or pressing V. If this is done while nothing is already selected, the virtual point will be placed at the origin. If this is done while sensors and/or impacts are selected, the virtual point will be placed at the geometric center of the selection, and the virtual point will be assigned to the selection.

Editing Virtual Points

Virtual points can be edited by right-clicking on the object in the 3D Viewer and selecting “Edit object” or right clicking on the item in the Item Overview and selecting “Edit Item”. Multiple objects can be selected using CTRL+click and then edited simultaneously.

Here, the name and description of the virtual point can be edited, and the position can be updated using actual coordinates. Note that the normal vector must be physically realizable and will be re-calculated after each modification. The color and transparency of the VP can also be changed, and visibility toggled on/off.
