I am using labview with NI myRio to design an interactive pick and place machine. Therefore, by the end of this project the user should drag and drop different part into a 3D platform and hit run then the pcik and place machine would place linking logs according to the design. So, I am using labview to design a 3d model of building enviroment using labview. My goal is get something similar to build lego with chrome (https://www.buildwithchrome.com/) in labview, the main difference is I am using likning logs instead of lego. Therefore, I am bringing the linking log into the labview and I am chaning the position of the rod with respect to origin. I want to be able to have mouse control instead of manually control of the position of the rod. Also, I was wondering if I can use a ring picture & text to have a drag and drop option from the ring picture into the 3d environment. Also, I have to have a good sense of x,y,z position because I have to send those data stepper motor for my builiding place.
Note: I cannot use extension of solidworks for labview because of constraint of the project. So, I have to design different parts in solidworks as a STL and bring them in to the 3D picture.
