Position of Nodes/Joints in Global Coordinate System


I intend to figure out the movement of a body part, e.g. of the Hand, in the simulation. For this purpose I try to analyse the position of a node or joint of the body part, e.g. hand, related to the global coordinate system.

Could this approach work? Are these sets of data already be recorded by AnyBody?

Thanks for your advices.


Hi Stefan !
I think I had same kind of problems for my model ; I started a thread about the relative position of two components (http://forum.anyscript.org/showthread.php?t=3165.

If you have a look to the last reply, I guess the answer to your question is that “Axes” is global (but not Arel); so have just a look on this parameter for your node of interest.

Hope it’s helpful.


Hi Lauranne,

thank you very much for your help.
