View Full Version : Ray grabber?

02-08-2018, 09:21 AM
I have seen a post in the past about a ray grabber, e.g. the ability to grab an object from a distance via a ray tool such as laser pointer or examiner rather than by the hand grabber. For my current project, this type of tool is necessary. If one exists, how would I go about using it? If one does not exist, I can make my own code to implement this without many issues, but I need a method to retrieve the object either highlighted by the examiner or pointed to by the laser pointer. Does such a method exist?

This thread (http://forum.worldviz.com/showthread.php?t=5888) includes example code for a ray grabber.

Oh, perfect. I'll read through the code and see if there's any way to toggle the ray and implement it with my own vizconnect config. Thanks for the help!

There are other things I could use the end point node of the laser pointer for, so if there is any way of getting the end node of the laser pointer (or its location), that would be extremely helpful. Either way, thanks for the help given so far.
