Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Creating 'hinges' to components in the Product Viewer.

Hi All,

I recently posted this question on the forum (https://forums.unrealengine.com/unreal-engine/unreal-studio/1537050-fixing-pivots-to-movable-mesh-in-the-product-viewer) and was given an answer that made sense till about step 3. I'm not very technical when it comes to the blueprints and physics as I come from an ArchViz background.

To recap, I need to create a series of doors that can be opened by clicking and dragging open. The Product viewer template that comes with Unreal Studio and though this system of dragging components about and moving them back works well; the client I'm going to be working for wants to see hinged doors that are dynamic and will be controlled by the user.

I've currently set the objects (the door itself and the component to which it is hinged too) to simulate physics and used a PhysicsConstraintActor to lock the axis movement I want. The issue I have now is the product viewer can't see the door and I can't move it at all. It's like it's invisible to the movement elements of the template. As mentioned before, I got to around step 3 and this is where doing some tweaks to the blueprints came in and I'm very unsure on what I need to do here to achieve this movement. Is anyone able to give me some help in more detail with some screenshots on how they would do it?

Any help is much appreciated! If you require any more information, please just ask!

Thanks in advance.
