Changing physical position of nodes via procedures

Post by fpeschiera » Mon May 12, 2014 9:57 am

Hello everyone,

This question has probably been answered before but i could not find any post making mention.
I would like to know if it is possible to edit the position (x, y, z) of a given object via some kind of procedure or using some state to govern these values.
Specifically, we would like to assign specific coordinates to nodes in a graph (so we know for example all links are scaled correctly with their size) and we would like to get the positions of the nodes from an external data source (Excel, .txt files).

We would only touch these values at the beginning of the simulation (as initialization).

thanks
