Spinning animation possible in CoCreate

Spinning animation possible in CoCreate

Is it possible to use a built in feature in CoCreate that allows you to somehow create an animation or a set of moving pictures to animate the model spinning? Not just manually rotating the model and saving a set of pictures, but if it can be done automatically that would be great. Thanks in advance.

No, that's not possible with the PE-Version.

In full version you can do it with the module "advanced assembly".

Did you try the "configurations" ? They can switch a part between two positions by using the smooth camera drive. Sometimes it looks good, sometimes not because the part chooses always the shortest way.

Another possibility is using this tool: http://osd.cad.de/lisp_3d_34.htm.

Unfortunately it is ony in german language. It makes a set of pictures by turning a part around an axle.

Thank you very much highway 45! I was able to use the program you mentioned to make a series of images with the object rotating. Didn't have to modify any portion of the script.

Fine ! Pleased to hear that.

Hmm I wanted to do the same, but how do I use this script in CoCreatePE? The programming seems straightforward but how do I use it, is it a plugin, do I copy and paste it to some command line, or what do I do?

Hi Tristan !

Do you talk about this tool ? http://osd.cad.de/lisp_3d_34.htm

How to use it, you can see at http://osd.cad.de/anleitungen_01.htm

But that's a description in German, you are from Germany as I see in your profile ?

Thanks for the link. Yes I speak german it was very helpful.

But now I get a "Convert.exe funktioniert nicht mehr" (Convert.exe does not work anymore) after every spinning step. Or is it just Vista now?
