Autodesk Vehicle Tracking –  How To Add Wing Mirrors

We recently had a client enquire it if is possible to add wing mirrors (also called door mirrors, or side mirrors) to a Rigid Body Truck. The client was designing a loading area in a tight space were there may be pedestrians walking around as the vehicle is manoeuvring.

This can be done by following a few simple steps:

1. Go to the Vehicle Tracking Ribbon and chose the Vehicle Library Explorer
