There isn’t an easy way to do that, as the transform tools are part of the underlying Vrui toolkit and don’t know about AR or sand boxes. The correct way is to create a SARndbox-specific version of the SixAxisTransformTool which knows about the sand surface, and keeps the virtual input device floating above it. That’s relatively advanced programming, though, as the sand surface is represented in (projective) depth image space, so even finding the elevation of the sand under the current device position is non-trivial as it involves casting rays into an elevation grid.
