OBJ imported meshes position


Recommended Posts

Hi there,
i'm quite a babylonjs newbie and i'm having a bit of a problem importing an .obj containing many meshes (with SceneLoader.LoadAssetContainer).

What I'd like to achieve is cycle through the container.meshes array and - according to their name - add some of them to the scene and use the others to fill a coordinates array.

If I attach them (scene.addMesh) everyhing is in its place, but logging their position (or absolutePosition) always returns (x:0,y:0,z:0).

It's probably an easy one but i can't sort out what i do wrong. 

Anyone can help?

because when exporting an obj it only records vertex position and not origin.  So in order to import an obj like this and wanting to manipulate the positions you need to import the objects that will move independently and then use a flags/blank objects with certain name on your scene obj to position the elements after.  Its actually quite a process when using obj's like this.
