Setting position of object

Recommended Posts

I want an object to be moved to a specific x,y,z position. There doesn't seem to be a Set3DCntr complement to Get3DCntr. What's the best way to do that--Get3DCntr and then Move3DObj by the difference? Or is there a direct way that I've overlooked? Thanks.

Your guess is correct, move the difference. If you haven't already written one, here's a short procedure I've used before for Set3DCntr.



Procedure Set3DCntr(H :Handle; x, y, z :Real);

{ Set the 3D center point of the object referenced by handle "H",

to the coordinates specified by "x", "y" & "z" }


u, v, w :Real;


Get3DCntr(H, u, v, w);

Move3DObj(H, x-u, y-v, z-w);
