Hi, im trying to set up an animation of a torque wrench tightening a bolt.
problem is i cannot find out how to set the rotation axis accuratly at the centerline of the bolt (or any central axis that is not a physical line)
Go to Solution.
Click the bolt
Click the Move component
Holding Ctrl, select the wrench (if it's more than one part, use the canvas)
Thank you, this solved my broblem,
but i am curious if there would be a solution to this if there were noe bolt to rotate around? is there no way to set rotation axis around the centerline of a hole?
If you select an object with a hole, say a nut, the Move component will automatically align to the centre of the nut.
Don't forget, you can chose any object on your model to align your axis to.
