Knowing mesh axis

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody ! 


Is there a solution for me to know which axis goes from the bottom to the top of my meshes ?

It is not always the same for different meshes and I want to find the good one each time.


Thanks for your time :)

DeathSoul (cheery name)... check out this doc:,_Rotate,_Translate_and_Spaces

It has lots of playground demos that use a contraption named showaxes.  I don't think showaxes is built-into our Babylon.Tools section, yet, but it COULD be.  You will need to think about LOCALspace and WORLDspace.

To "get your bearings"... check out that doc above.  Also, I sometimes use a texture on my playgrounds called "orient.jpg".

For proper visualization, SOMETIMES set axes.parent = myRotatingMesh;.  This is so the LOCALspace axes rotate WITH the mesh.  Most of the demos on that doc page... don't parent-together the axes or ever animate them.  Write back if you have problems setting the pivot point of a parented-together set of axes/labels.
