Fan (2019)

Post by 3DfromNULL » 2019-Apr-27 4:51

This script demonstrates two independent rotations of hierarchically linked objects. It creates parts of a fan and the extending, blades rotation, and head-shaking animation.

How can we obtain the 3D shape of a blade? trueSpace has various tools to model such shape, but an easy way to make similar shape is to use the intersection of a cone and a cylinder.


Please note that the cone's axis of rotation and the cylinder's one are not on a plane.


The image above is the section of the cone after BooleanIntersectionWithCurrobj().


Sliced the section with a cylinder with the same shape.


It's not difficult to add hierarchical rotation for trueSpace as long as the grouping of parts is done properly.
