Is it a chair yet?  

  • In the previous episode, we made the parts and assembled a chair.
  • It is not really a chair until the parts are stuck together.
  • And it is not really useful until we know why we want it that way.
  • (More after the break, scroll down!)

    The Group command links/glues

    • We prepped for this early on when we made the arms and back child prims.
    • We click the crossed tools to enter the building mode.  
    • We click on the parent prim to select it. 
    • We click General to get the general attributes.
    • We click Group to fix all the child prims in position relative to the seat (parent prim).

    The chair is ready for use

    • When we select the seat again the whole chair is highlighted.
    • We can duplicate (clone) the chair:
    • Click the chair to select it.
    • Click Actions, then click Clone Element.
    • Set the desired coordinates for the cloned chair 
    • See screen shot above the break.
    Ready to link
    • You reposition the clone by changing its position under attributes.
    • You should be able to take the object into inventory and give copies to others.
