Hi everybody,

I'm trying to make a translation from a mesh on X and Y axes.
But I can't be sure that I did it well.

I used translation tools,

I click on axe OX, check norm fix: -0.7
then ok
I did the same for axe OY but It seems that norm fix is always similar on axe OX and OY? I don't understand why?

Does somebody can give me the right process to make XY translation, please?

Thank you,

Sylvain gautier

Hi sylvain,

in the translation tool, the OX (or OY...) button only allows you to make a translation along 1 direction at a time.
For example, to move your mesh of DX=2 and DY=3, you first have to translate your mesh with OX, fixing the norm to 2 (Hit OK) and do it again on OY, fixing the norm to 3 (and Hit OK again).

Another solution is to use a functionnality which should be much better known amongst our users: when you define a point with XYZ, you can define the difference with the previous entered point.
In your use case, this is what I would suggest:
Use the "Define vector with 2 points" (instead of "OX Axis") and activate the "XYZ" option in order to have the field which you can fill.
For the first point, enter "0 0 0" for your first point, hit the "Enter" button.
Now, for the second point, I suggest to enter "Dx2 Dy3" and hit the "Enter" button.
This way you have defined the vector X=2, Y=3, Z=0.

You can see in this procedure that you can enter any point for the first one! I suggested here to use "0 0 0" but you could also click a point on your mesh. The important thing here is the "Dx2 Dy3" text entered.

Let me know if this is clear for you!
