Can I edit LocalAvatar in Unity?

I want to customize the avatar (e.g adding bracers to hands). Is there anyway to show the avatar in the scene view in order to edit it?

    I haven't come across that but this is what I do to attached things to the hands.

    Drag the bracelet Game Object as a child of the left/right hand, set its position to 0,0,0 same with rotation.

    Then launch the app so you can see the hands, adjust the position and rotation while its running so you get visual feedback, once happy with the position just copy the bracelets transform component, stop the app and then paste the copied transform onto the bracelets, this will position the bracelets correctly and move as expected with the hands.

    Hope that helps

    Hey Mike,

    thanks for your helpful answer. I tried the bracelet suggestion and it works fine.
    However I still want to know if there is any way to show the avatar in the scene view for constant editing without the need to run the app and move the controller in order the hands to be shown.
