Lesson 2 | Ultimate Gears
Get ready for some Math and Python as we create a procedural model that automatically places gears into a scene, allows the artist to resize and determine tooth count and depth. Then allows the artist to place other gears down as Houdini auto calculates size and tooth count for successful gear rotations. Not enough. Let the HDA auto place axils to create gear boxes.The scene files for this lesson are available using the button at the top right just under the embedded video.
