Folding cube animation

Postby PuckV » Sat Sep 07, 2019 2:13 pm

Hi Fredo,

At first, Animator is a very nice plug-in! It helps me a lot in my visualisations:)
I'm was trying things with it, but I'm very new with the software, so I have a question.
I would like to make a cube (without bottom and top) flat, and I can make this right now (I can add the Sketch-Up file, to make it more clear) but is there a way to keep the edges of the planes connected? According to a tutorial of your folding doors, I've used the reference axes (orange) of surrounding groups, which works very good already, but I was curious if it is possible to connect the edges (see added screenshot).
(I've added the Sketch-Up file, but I was not allowed to add the Animator file?)

Thanks a lot!

But very good work Fredo, I love this plug-in!

Unfortunately, Animator does not allow to coordinate the rotation and the translation, as they don't follow the same speed.

For your case, I would recommend you give a try to MSPhysics, which has kinematic and physical constraints and can do this easily.
