This article goes over how to move units in SUM3D using the simple movement options and the advanced option.
There are two buttons that enable moving the units after they are imported.
Simple Movement (located on standard workflow toolbar)
This is the button in the workflow toolbar where you can move the unit using the mouse and keyboard. This is between to the calculate button and the spruing button. The movement is limited to simple rotational movement using the keyboard and mouse movements.
After you click this button, you will see another toolbar pop up like this and the other options to . This is the selection menu bar.
If you click the move button by accident, just right click anywhere or click the blue circle with check mark button seen here. If you select an object accidentally, you may have to right click until the other tool bars are no longer grayed out.
You typically do not need to select anything using this button but this also lets you know that you are in selection mode in SUM3D. If you need more information on the selection buttons and how to use them, go to this article.
You will need to left click the unit and it should highlight white as shown below.
After clicking only once, right click the mouse or click the blue check button to confirm the selection.
You will be able to move by dragging and dropping the mouse. To rotate the unit, you have to options. Using the plus (+) key above the main QWERTY keyboard typing area, it will rotate in 90 degree increments. You will need to use the plus (+) and minus (-) keys on the number pad area on the keyboard if available to rotate in smaller increments.
When you are done, right click and a confirmation dialogue will ask if you want to the movement to the location you want the unit.
If you need to move more units in this mode, you can select another unit. Otherwise, right click again to exit the mode to move the unit.
This clip below shows how it would look using the simple move button.
If this is not sufficient to move your unit, you will need to use the advanced move button for precision movements. This is the tooth with plus and minus symbols on it.
Follow the same selection method as the simple move process and confirm the selection. You will see a pop-up like this then.
Linear Step will define the incremental steps for moving using the top three rows of X, Y, and Z plus/minus buttons. The Angular step will define the rotational increment for the bottom 3 rows of buttons that are the Angle plane step buttons.
The same method to confirm and exit out of the mode are the same as the simple movement mode.
