Assemblies

Panel

In the lower part of the left panel the assemblies of the currently selected system are shown. Assemblies can contain components and constraints. Everything that is put inside of an assembly can be moved together by selecting the assembly and modifying the origin.

Note

The assembly origin should be moved to where the actual components in the assembly are located. This makes it easier to work with later on.
