Moving Objects in the 3-D Workspace
You can position individual objects or groups of objects by clicking and dragging the 3-D manipulators in the 3-D Workspace.
To display the 3-D manipulator for a single unconnected object, click the object once in the 3-D Workspace. You can then click and drag the blue arrow of the 3-D manipulator to move the object along the Z axis, the green arrow to move the object along the Y axis, and the red arrow to move the object along the X axis. You can also click and drag the sphere at the center of the 3-D manipulator to move the object in all directions.
For a group of connected objects, the configuration of your model determines where the 3-D manipulators are located.
If your 3-D model contains a Fixed Frame component, click the square that represents the Fixed Frame component to display the 3-D manipulator.
If your model does not contain a Fixed Frame component, click the object that defines the initial conditions for your system to display the 3-D manipulator. For example, if your model contains a Rigid Body component with its initial condition parameters set to Strictly Enforce, that Rigid Body component displays the 3-D manipulator. When a model is moved in the 3-D Workspace, the initial conditions are updated for all of the other Rigid Body components that depend on the Rigid Body component that has its initial conditions set to Strictly Enforce.
If your model does not contain a Fixed Frame component or a Rigid Body component with its initial conditions set to Strictly Enforce, click any of the objects in your 3-D model to display the 3-D manipulator. When you move the group of objects, the initial conditions of all of the multibody components in your model are set to Treat as Guess.
Note: To display 3-D manipulators, the multibody components in your model must have numeric parameter values. If custom parameter values defined in a parameter block, global parameter, or subsystem parameter have been assigned to a multibody component, no 3-D manipulator will be displayed when you click that component in the 3-D Workspace.
