3D part positions on rack

Hi,

 

I'm unsure how to position 1 part on each of the shelves in the image attached (wasn't able to attach PS file for some reason)

 

I'm been trying a few things on the MU Animation>Area settings Tab but can't get the parts to be distributed vertically.

 

 

Cheers,

 

Shaun

I suppose, you have got the Y dimension set to 1 and the Z dimension (in the object dialog) to something > 1, is that correct?

 

You probably just need to switch those two values.

The X and the Y dimensions each designate indices for an individual logical place while the Z dimension just specifies how many parts you will be able to stack on one such place. And your picture pretty much looks like stacks that are just distributed in X direction.

 

The plane selection in the 3D dialog talks about spacial dimensions in contrast to the logical ones I just described.
