Navigation Cube and Coordinate System

Post by Hendrik » Wed Aug 05, 2015 2:35 pm

Hi,

i wanted to ask if there is any possiblity to have a navigation cube and the coordinate system in a LightningChart 3D application as you can see below.

Hello,

That's not a built-in feature of LightningChart 3D view at the moment. Objects like those can be constructed from LightningChart's objects, but it's difficult to position them in 3D scene when the model get rotated or resized. The coordinate arrows can be made with 3 PointLineSeries3D objects. The cube with 6 Rectangle3D objects most easily, characters can be best made in a bitmap editor and applied as a bitmap fill in a Rectangle.

But both are great ideas for future development, as built-in features.

Thanks for the answer. Hopefully it is in your API the next version.

Kind regards

Since I recognized the cube in the screenshot... It is part of the Helix Toolkit, called ViewCubeVisual3D.
