What is Roblox toobjectspace and what does it do? For those who are new in the platform of Roblox, you may do not really get the meaning of Roblox toobjectspace. You do not worry about that, in this page, we are going to try to explain some information related Roblox toobjectspace.

You have to know that in Roblox there is a thing named CFrame. It describe the positions and orientations. In this case, you are able to view them as either absolute, where they tell you your position or orientation relative to the origin (the middle of the world at 0,0,0), or as relative where they dictate position or orientation relative to several reference Roblox CFrame. For your information, Roblox toobjectspace describes the CFrame of b relative to the CFrame of a. In this page we are going to give you an example: If a and b are 2x1x4, so it bricks with b sitting on the top of a. We are able to conclude that it means that component b is 1 stud above component a. Then, they share at the same orientation.

In understanding about Roblox toobjectspace, you have to know about lot of the Roblox CFrame ways do you have to understand a bit of linear algebra, specifically what the inverse of a Roblox CFrame. The inverse of a CFrame will allows you to either pre or post multiple the original CFrame and get CFrame.new () (the identity CFrame) back. Based on the research, it is extremely unique in Roblox CFrame (matrix) multiplication as for the most part component a, b. By using that knowledge, so you are able to start to look at what “object space is”. Say you have several Roblox CFrame A and want to get to CFrame B by traveling the offset between the two. In this case, you are able to use the inverses and algebra to solve what that offset will be.

If you check the way for the Roblox toobjectSpace way, you are able to see it’s exactly equivalent to the above process you just calculated. Thus, the Roblox toobjectSpace way is able to be thought of as a way to calculate the offset between two CFrames. Another way to think about Roblox object space is to think the returned item as being directions from your exact location or orientation. Say you tell that you walk ten steps forward, then five steps right. Those directions are relative to you. If you follow those exact same directions, so you will end up in a completely different position (on earth). Then, maybe since you are facing east right now you may end up facing a different direction. For note: Those directions are object space. Then, the world space directions on the other hand are not relative to the object which follow them. In this example, we gave you GPS coordinates. If we both follow them, so we will end up in the same place.

The last, if you want to get more information related the Roblox Toobjectspace, we suggest you to visit the page of CFrame in Roblox Developer. Or you can also visit the page of CFrame on Roblox Wikia.
