Blender Expert Needed!

I'm pulling my hair out!

Sunday, October 25, 2009 by ChaosMoth | Discussion: Community

Ok...basically, I've spent an hour digging around Blender Artist Forums and can't figure out how to make a new post there.  Either I'm blocked or blind, but nonetheless, I've given up and I'm asking you guys.

I'm trying to put together a few pieces of a train together so they can move correctly in the animation.  I'm using Blender 2.6.

If there's an expert on Blender...please...for the love of God...send me a lifeline.  I'm pulling my hair out.

To be specific--I'm trying to put together the train's mechanical stuff together; the piston to the arms to the wheels sorta thing.

I feel for ya, Blender is a difficult app to learn. I stuck with C4d

I would kill for Autodest Inventor...I love that program...

I could do things in Inventor that would make wicked cursors and in half the time.

Good one Ed

 

Hey OP,  have you tried rooting out some of the tutorials probably available online, on youtube etc? Its a big net, I don't think there are many, if any Blender experts on WC I'm afraid to say.

Well...I think I did a good job in digging around for a tutorial.   I might be wrong, so I've set aside that piece of my cursor project and moved on to the other stuff.  Once I have to return to that part, I'll look again.

Worst-case scenario:  I'll drop by my old high school and bust this train out on Inventor there.

I will have my train running!

Stupid Blender Program...  Maybe it'll go well with that pink smoothie/shake angus has...

I was able to post on a Blender forum, finally.  Now the waiting game...

following a couple of video tutorials is the best way to learn new apps ....

i guess, they have added a couple of tutz on their site ....

Alas...No tutorial.

But by GOD, I've done it!  My train works!  I may soon be a blender master at this rate...

No one helped me on Blender Artist Forums either!  I will contain my harsh words against them as this is a censored site...

 ...

Anyway...my cursor set will be done soon!
