Hello everyone

I'm a beginner in Vizard and I'm currently trying to map the coordinate points of microscribe and virtual object.

How to collect the coordinate points of virtual object?

Is it possible to map the coordinate points?

I'm not sure what you mean by collecting and mapping the coordinate points.

You can use standard Python commands for reading text files in Vizard. In this case, you could try opening the file and then reading the last line written every frame or on some other time interval.
