I am using your framework for general mouse-over and dragging along a floor plane. Similar to the WrmMapping example. but I tried to load an external model (using the ModelLoader class) as a target -it all seems to load fine, until I put the mouse over, or try drag the loaded object.

I get the CapabilityNotSetException: Shape3D: no capability to allow intersect.
I understand what is wrong.
But even using:
PickUtils.allowSetGeoPickable(loadedNode); with: PickUtils.setGeoPickable(loadedNode, true).
I still get this exception.

Can you suggest a solution.

Re: Pick Intersection Exception
problem found in PickUtils.
a shape can have more than one goemetry, the Util only sets the capability for one.
Suggest wrapping in for loop
from 0 to leaf.numGeometries()

Re: Pick Intersection Exception
I am having the same problem. My shapes only have one geometry in them, so bug in PickUtils is irrelevent. I have also tried using setCapability(Geometry.ALLOW_INTERSECT) directly, but I keep getting the same exception. Has anyone actually used geometric picking successfully?
