Metal spring animation
« on: August 13, 2018, 12:37:23 am »
Hello there,

i made an spring animation on Keyshot.  Please look at attachment.  It took a long time, but i think its enough because;

deformation is a problem on keyshot. in fact it's impossible.

Some modelling tools like blender or C4D or a few other are capable to define the deformation and export it as alembic cache (.abc). KeyShot 7 can import these file type directly with all the animation nodes. But most CAD tools doesn't support .abc output.

Who can add some comments?

Cheers
Marco

Thanks again,

How do you do it with rhinoceros?

I've done this by making an assembly of the folding pieces, pieces that are mated where they bend on the edge. It worked great for a manufacturing aid as to which bend to bend first, second, etc. Mobdro

hello there, sorry for late answer at first.  there are too many spring model at different size.  at start of the animation, i show you just one spring otherwise the others are in fade.  then while animation, i fade out the others according to move.
