Positioning, Scaling and Rotating Parts

PDF3D ReportGen and PDF3D.IO development SDK can be used to convert over 90 file formats to 3D PDF.

Q: How to Position-Scale-Rotate Parts in ReportGen?

A: How to use the manual position, scale and rotate controls on the
Interface Settings Common parameters tab:

  1. Add 2 teapot.stl files (from samples/stl, same model file loaded twice).
  2. For both teapot.stl files “create options”
  3. Go to Interface Settings, select first teapot, turn ON Object Scale.
    (as local part selection mode)
  4. For first teapot.stl set Scale Z to -1.0
  5. On visual effects tab, Set diffuse color selection to unique colors, different for each model.
  6. Turn ON “Exploded” Mode on Animation tab and push Convert.

After these 5 steps, whole teapot model is produced.
