Rotating multiple parts at once around a common pivote point
« on: March 28, 2020, 07:41:47 am »
I am trying to do a simple animation - and individual parts rotating / translating are not a problem - but at the end when i try to rotate everything at once around a single axis the group "blows apart" - Any guidance or help would be great, and i you need additional images to see what i have done wrong please let me know.

Hey chevisw.


I would try to add the entire model set in a new sub group. Then you can apply the last rotation (animation) to this group. That should keep the parts together.


Nice work so far!


Hope that helps


Cheers
Marco

Try both Global and Local modes when rotating, I know it shouldn't make a difference, but sometimes It does. Just to troubleshoot.
