Benefits and Description
Use Reach Envelope functionality to create volumetric envelopes that represent the left and right reach areas of the manikin. Reach Envelopes are different for each manikin and you can save the Reach Envelope as a manikin feature. When you create Reach Envelopes, the following displays in the Graphics window:
- A graphical representation of the effective reach area for both the left and right hands
- The envelope for each arm in a different color for optimized viewing
- The envelope semi-transparently so that you can view through the reach envelopes
- Manikin-specific reach envelopes based on anthropometry and joint ranges of motion
Use Reach Envelopes to place important control interfaces within a spatial area that corresponds to the reach zones of your product's target audience.
