Re: What is an XForm

XForm is a transformation object and used by many transformation related objects.

 

You can create a coordinate system based on an XForm or move an assembly component, for instance.

And what does that do exactly?
I guess I just don't understand what happens if you tie an object to an xform.

Re: What is an XForm

A XForm consists of two vectors and an origin.

For instance the position of a component is contained in a XForm object.
