You can run a simulation program in the robotics simulator to render the simulation scene in a 3D picture control and view the interactions of components within the environment. Complete the following steps to run and view a simulation.
|Note If you did not add code to control components in the simulator, the simulator shows the same static scene you designed.|
The following table lists actions you can perform to customize your view of the simulation within the 3D picture control.
|Move the camera around the scene.||Click and drag the environment.|
|Zoom in and out of the 3D scene.||Hold <Shift>, and then click and drag in the 3D scene.|
|Reposition the environment within the scene.||Hold <Ctrl>, and then click and drag the environment.|
You also can display the simulation scene on the front panel of a VI.
To change the properties of a component in the simulation scene, such as the mass of a robot, edit the definition of the component in the manifest file.
