13- Rotating Panels

In this Paracourse lesson, we will model a series of rotating panels which extrude until they reach their neighboring surface. We will use three different techniques :

1- Sort the data so each panel finds its neighbor

2- Delete the extra panels at the edges

3- Use point attractor to rotate the panels

    Haven’t tried this out yet, but for getting rid of edge blocks, perhaps another (less robust) method would be to look at areas of rectangles and filter out ones with areas less than a certain threshold.

      Hi Nathan
      we are glad that you share your idea with us.
      It is absolutely correct, but the main goal of the tutorial was something else and it may get our audience confused about main lesson here.
