Hi everybody!

I'm new and i'm taking the firsts steps in the VR world and i hope you will help me!
i want to know if this program Can simulate the animation of a machine controlled by a remote controller.

Now i will show how it works.
With a remote controller the operetor can control several hydraulic cylinder, this remote is composed by:
1_ a turnable switch (Position 1 control Cylinder 1, Position 2 control Cylinder 2, etc)
2_one or two levers control the extend or shorten (and other movimentations) of the selected cylinder

First question is: i need to know if this controller can be placed in foreground?
Then i think is possible to extend/shorten the cylinder 1 by the lever but, if i turn the switch on position 2, can i extend/shorten the cylinder 2??

I'm sorry form my english, i hope everything is comprensible.
I attach an image of the remote controller.

anyway can someone suggest me some tutorial or "book" to understend better the program in addition of what i can find on

Thanks in advance!

Hi everybody,
Someone can help me to find a way to control the interactive vr via keyboard and not via joysticks?
In the tutorials i find only the indication to set the joistick.

If i start the interactive vr and I push the letter on the keyboard that have an association with a movimentation nothing happen!

For exemple i have set to the letter "X" as the extension of a cylinder but this don't happen in interactive vr. it works if i use the simple interatctive animation.

VR viewer takes control of the keyboard.

At this point you need to have an XBOX 1 controller to run co-simulation with composer
