Hi Vahith,


this is the correct behaviour of child-parent meshes. If you don't want to move the child independently, you would need to move its parent instead. so, instead of setting mesh.position , set mesh.parent.position (or better, use the mesh.parent.translate function).

I am not sure if there is a "disable" mechanism for positioning, you will just have to pay attention to the parent-child relationship. maybe something like this:

var newPosition = new Vector3(...)if(mesh.parent) {    mesh.parent.position = newPosition;} else {    mesh.position = newPosition;}
