ABOUT ME

I live in a camper van with a couple of West Highland Terriers for company.
My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.
I am always willing to share what knowledge I have and can be contacted through the comments on this post or e-mail ADRIAN

PRETTY VIDEO.

I was going to post a video of a big machine working but that is on hold. I believe the driver wants to get his highlights done and his nails painted.
I am slowly getting the gear animation sorted, I think they look sparkling bright.


Have fun.
The gears above were horrible but I found a stack of spread sheet generators here.   Otvinta  Some they do are Python scripts. Non seem work in Blender 2.8 but one can create the mesh in 2.79 and import it into 2.8 for materials and render.
Here is my first effort. This wasn't generated from the script but modelled the old fashioned way. The tooth form formulae Otvinta provided.
This is quite a challenge for me but I'll try and get a simple gear train to animate and if I have the patience model something posh.

  1. I was dazzled by the shine, Adrian. Those square-toothed gears look a bit wear-prone to me!

    1. Richard, the gears come from a gear generator that is in Blender. They can be animated but look rubbish. I have found a proper involute spur gear spread sheet thinghy and I'll tack my first gear on the bottom of this post. They should take about 15 minutes a piece to do but this took about and hour.
      I have sussed the shiny malarkey, don't know when to stop is my problem.
