Display a sphere in your 3-D model
You can attach this component to a single component or connection line in the model workspace. In the 3-D workspace, the origin of the sphere is positioned at the reference frame.
For example, when a Spherical Geometry component is connected to the end of a pendulum model, as shown in the following diagram,
the following is displayed in the 3-D workspace.
Connection to the component or connection line for which you want to display a sphere.
Radius of the sphere.
Color of the sphere. For information on using the color selection tools, see Selecting Colors.
Select this option to make the geometry component transparent.
