Assembly Link

Set here the translation applied to the child object or list of objects.

When linking an assembly to another object, the translation is always applied to the child object: the assembly itself when linking above, the other object (graph, shape, arrow, cell, cluster, molecule, group, plane, direction, atom, orbital, text) when linking below.

The final child position is given by this translation vector added to the child or parent origin, as defined by the Reference option. By default this is the child origin and the translation vector is 0.0, 0.0, 0.0, so no translation is applied.

When a list of assemblies is linked above, Reference is set by default to Child, so assemblies preserve their positions and are not superposed.

When a list of assemblies is linked below, each assembly will be linked to a new, automatically created, child object, and Reference is set by default to Parent, so childs remain near their parent assemblies and are not superposed.
