Oh i did not know you where part of the clergy. That group also did not look though Galileo's telescope ... or so the story goes.
What an idiotic retort. It's not about religious fervour (what a stupid idea), it's about pragmatism and peace of mind. I won't use a crappy OS at home simply because 90% of people use it, it's a bad reason. And I would wager that if computers had existed in Galileo's time, he wouldn't have used the OS everybody used, as it would have been blind conformism.

Sorry, you are right. I suggest you ask a moderator to split all the off-topic discussion starting from whichever post you prefer.

I improved the Aligner and Mover to manage also Solidworks STEP files, which, when imported, will have a cylinder with a seam edge divided in two semi-circles... that case was difficult to align and move in my previous release ... but now it is handled fine :)
I also improved the Undo of the aligner to handle more undo steps.
Here a small screencast with a robotic finger to show the WB's new abilities...

Hi Maurice,
very great. I like it!!!

I'm a bit drunken this night. After singing in a choir we had a very special drink. It's called force apart haunch.
First put a teaspoon sugar in your mouth, next a schnapps glass with lemon juice, and then a vodka. Mix it in your mouth and then swallow it. Three are absolute enough. :mrgreen:

Best regards

Wilfried

And you sure are in a state where proper quoting is no longer possible ... :lol:

Hello easyw-fc!

great job, really impressive.
I'm start thinking a way to make this a solid base for a simple assembly wb.
Do You think it makes sense creating a virtual object in the tree that stores the relevant info of the just done align or move action? (i.e objectA, ObjectB, setup of each parameter)
a specific button would repeat the stored alignment at any time.

What about storing these objects in a tree which defines the sequence of execution? So You can change the order, delete them, etc...

In these way it would be possible creating a sort of constrained assembly.

Hoping it doesn't look a silly proposal...

Regards

This WB is aimed to help in create assemblies of Objects (Part Design Next and Body included) but without the need/ability to add fixed constrains...
That is meaning it is good for manipulate simple and complex assembly, without the need to update the structure...
For a more complex task, Assembly3 is the right WB ;)

Hi maurice,

Is it possible to use your manipulator-wb to move an object from anywhere in 3D to e.g. 0,0,0?
Please see the attached file and the picture to see what I want to achieve.

BR,

Hi HoWil,
I've just added the ability to 'align to points' in to Aligner
