Marker with graphic properties
Simscape / Multibody / Body Elements
The Graphic block adds a simple marker to the attached frame. The marker has a simple geometry, color, and no inertia. You can use this block to highlight a frame of interest in the Mechanics Explorer visualization pane. The graphic marker has no impact on model dynamics.
Graphic Marker Geometries
R — Reference frame
Local reference frame of the graphic marker. Connect to a frame line or frame port to define the relative position and orientation of the marker.
Shape — Shape of the marker to show during visualization
Sphere (default) |
Shape of the marker to show in the visualization of the model. The motion of the marker reflects the motion of the frame to which the block is connected.
Size — Width of the marker in pixels
Width of the marker in pixels. This width does not scale with zoom level. Note that the apparent size of the marker depends partly on screen resolution, with higher resolutions packing more pixels per unit length, and therefore producing smaller icons.
