Graphics scaling note

Post by MSI »

if you are using a 3D Model with lareg sideview mirrors, you may need to graphically scale the vehicle to display properly.
(when you download from the cloud the scaling should be included to display properly)

It is an easy task
  • note the actual overall width is used in calculations
    this is for graphics display ONLY
The procedure to scale:
  1. First check the overall width with and without the side view mirrors and find the % difference
  2. Next from 3D Graphics click on the vehicle
  3. Then select the Edit Model icon to the right

    Here' is the graphical change
    • NOTE: the simulation does not include the mirrors so the overal width and/or when polygon shape is used.
