Coordinate of excavator teeth edge


I developed excavator simulation. I would like to get coordinate of excavator teeth edge.

Do someone know how to get coordinate from machine during simulation.

The simplest way to get the coordinate of some location on a part is use an Attachment Point:

  • In your assembly, add an Attachment Point from the Dynamics category in the Toolbox.
  • Specify your bucket part in the Parent Part field in the Attachment Point.
  • Edit the Local Transform or use the Move tool to position the Attachment Point to location of the edge of the teeth.
  • When playing the simulation, the World Transform field of the Attachment Point will display the live transform (position and rotation) of that location on the bucket.
