  4. Fine-tune the conveyor belts by adjusting their positions and lengths;
  5. Click on Source 02 and select the objects that need to be generated from the main function;
  6. Edit the path of AGV in the Path editing mode:
    Open the Path editing mode;

    Select Bidirectional for Path Direction;Click the “path” icon to edit the path;Click the ground in the scene to draw the path;Complete edition;The path editing mode is designed to map out various crucial control points, such as pickup points, drop-off locations, charging stations, and more. Bidirectional paths ensure that the digital twins can shuttle between these points. If the path is set forward, the digital twin can only move from the start point to the endpoint, and vice versa for the backward path. You can adjust the mode, number, and poses of these control points according to actual conditions.

    With these steps completed, a new product line has been successfully set up.
