Bounding Box

Bounding Box

AR3S was formerly known as ARES.
The Bounding Box feature places the model in a container, allowing the object to be moved, scaled and rotated.

How-To Steps

  • Once you’ve loaded a file in AR3S
  • Access the Hierarchy menu and select the entire model or the desired components
  • Navigate to Interaction and go to menu item Manipulation
  • Tap on the option Bounding Box and your model will now be placed into a cuboid container and can be moved by either grabbing the container with your hand or via Far Interaction
    • By dragging the corners of the Bounding Box you are able to scale the model bigger or smaller
    • Special markings on the container indicate in which axis directions the model can be rotated
  • Flubbed up? – Tap the Undo button in the Interaction menu to reverse the most recent manipulation

Legacy

  • Since AR3S Version 1.0.3.0 the Bounding Box feature no longer provides one-handed rotation of an object
    • In its place a new Selection Tool allowing free-hand rotation was implemented – Grab

When to use Grab or Bounding Box feature

  • Use Grab if you want to move and rotate the object freely 
  • Use Bounding Box if you want to move and scale the object freely or rotate it around specific given axes
