Remaking of the ReachStacker

Post by Prodigy » 06 Aug 2009, 15:08

Hi guys,

Last year i need to model a reach stacker for customer..
Was indeed the beginning of my love for the LE to optimize my work..

Since the project had be made within 2 weeks i had no time on details instead functionality.. So now im remodeling the reach stacker in mid~high details..

:D sure!! WAR WAR WAR!! :bananacool2:

Now im fighting with pistons.. :S

For that im experimenting with Look at.. in theory each part of the piston must look at the other.. let's see if it works ayayayayyy!! :lol:

Very nice,

do you have a tutorial on that one?

Two things I like to see are:
1. How to ge the Morph panel up like that (if you used morph)
2: How do you get the tires to roll when the thing moves.

I was going to try and get tires to move soon, There is a tutorial on how to make a propellar turn when the object moves in the manual, i was thinking of deconstructing that object pulling what I need and using it on tires. figured it would be the same concept.

No, Nothing from this project use Morph.. Just Matrix to move each part separated, then i made the panel to move the matrix with sliders.. quite simple if you see how it works..

I think i solved the riddle of the hydraulic.. :bananacheers:
Im using Dele's Super Look at script.. :worship:

btw, where's Dele?? :?

Ok finally I've got the hydraulics, piston or what ever you want to call it working! :)



Finally i decide to use just Look at instead Dele's script cos i found a good workaround..

I never thought about using hyraulics like that, I think you've just saved me a good degree of trouble Prodigy, it works great for me too

Thanks guys :)

I found a very small issue with the Hydraulics and if you use the way to one object look at the other and vice verse.. so i found a workaround to solve that and now i can say that Hydraulics are working GOOOD! :D

Im gonna release a small tutorial to teach how to create such pistons in a proper way.. 8-)
