Input locations. The coordinates part of the lattice is used for the positions of the objects. The data part of the lattice is ignored.
Port: Input Geom
Geometry of the object to be postioned at each location. The module assumes that the object is oriented along the +Y axis (this is the default in Inventor for simple axi-symmetric primitives such as cylinders and cones). It rotates the object so that it is oriented along the +Z axis, and shifts it so that the centre of the lower face of its bounding box (i.e. the face originally in the low XZ plane) is positioned at each of the input locations.
Scaling factor to be applied to the object, in each dimension.
Scaling factor to be applied to the Z coordinate of each location of the object.
Port: Output Geom
Output geometry. An explicit representation of the object is given for the first location; shared instancing is used for the other occurences of the object, which saves time and space.
Note: The ViewGeom module is not available for all ports of IRIS Explorer.
