Visualization Settings

You can specify the following 3-D Visualization values for models containing multibody mechanical components:

 

Parameter

Default

Description

Enable Translational Snapping

When selected, components are positioned at the closest location in 3-D space based on the translation snap delta value.

Translation Snap Delta

1.0

Specifies the translation snap delta spacing.

Enable Rotational Snapping

When selected, components are positioned at the closest location in 3-D space based on the rotation snap delta value.

Rotation Snap Delta

0.785398163

Specifies the rotational snap delta spacing.

Perspective Grid Extent

10.0

Specifies the size of the grid drawn in the perspective view. The grid extends this distance in both directions on the horizontal plane.

Grid Spacing

1.0

Specifies the space between grid lines.

Base Radius

0.1

Implicit geometry consists of spheres and cylinders representing multibody components in the 3-D Workspace. Cylinders are drawn using Base Radius, while spheres (for Rigid Bodies and Joints) are drawn using Base Radius * 2.

Enable View Change Animations

When enabled, a smooth transition occurs when switching between 3-D orthographic and perspective views and when using Fit Scene, Fit Selected, or Fit Animation in the 3-D Workspace and the  3-D Playback Window.
