Blender Wheel speed and model height

Recommended Posts

Help with automating wheels in Blender and .x file

 

I have made a model engine in Blender and exported it to .x

When I load it into 3D Train Studio, it sits above the rail by the height of the wheel flanges.

Also the speed of the wheels is a bit out, again probably due to things being based on the outside diameter of the wheel (flange), rather than the size of the tyre.

 

Is there somewhere in Blender that I can adjust figures?

Is there somewhere in 3D Train Studio that I can adjust figures?

Is there something else I can do to fix this problem?

Hello Richard,

for adjusting the correct height position of the vehicle on the rail see here:

The rotation velocity cannot be regulated and is adjusted by the train studio to "normal" wheel height. When you want to specify a specific rotation velocity, you must define a separate animation set. But how to do this with blender, other hobby colleagues must help you.

Many greetings

Hi Richard,

when you use "Radanim" the speed of rotation is calculated with a "standard" diameter 1 (regardless of the diameter in your model)...
... you can use "_AnimWheel" but you must figure out the "right" speed by playing with the animation length and fps in Blender and make a .anim file.

EASY
