It is a game component for transforming objects in the XANA app. There are three types of transformations: ‘Position Move,’ ‘Scale,’ and ‘Tilt.’ By checking the features you want to use, it is possible to use them in combination.

Move between two specified points (Piston Move)

Scale the object to two specified sizes (Scale)

Tilt the object towards two specified points (Tilt)
