  1. Help needed for making Gear Generator

    This is amazing!! Exactly what i hoped to make!! thank you so much!!
  2. Help needed for making Gear Generator

    i have been little away from this project because.. i couldn't figured it out, and decided to learn more basics first. but i kinda see what you mean.. ill definitely test it out today when i get home! thank you for the input!
  3. Help needed for making Gear Generator

    thats awesome! very close to what i was hoping to achieve as well. but i'm still too new to Houdini, i'm still having hard time figuring out the "getting info from the previous wheel" part here. I'm going to try out the loop tutorial thats stated here... (https://vimeo.com/222881605) and hope i can get something out from it. for now. if things works out, ill post it here. i also thought about the grid and point copy way as well. but i couldn't think of a way to distance the points that will change distance with different shaped gear that you create later on. but ... now that i think about it, it could be a good idea to just generate gears that matches the grid automatically ..... never thought about that. maybe it can be a good idea to think about.. thanks for input! ill keep trying!
  4. Help needed for making Gear Generator

    hi flcc, no- I'm not in a hurry but this thing has been giving me a trouble for a week and i just want a good solution to it. I do have numTeeth attribute, and i am able to match gear rotation with previous one... but i just don't know how to generate it automatically in Houdini and for the file... i wonder if its not showing up because I'm still using free learning edition.. well basically the connection is very similar to hip file thats in the link above (http://deborahrfowler.com/MathForVSFX/GearRatio.html) well thanks for your time! and i would love to see how you have treated this problem in your way too
  5. hi guys I'm new to the Houdini, and I'm having hard time understanding how to make loop nodes what i want to do is to create a gear generator, which allows me to spawn connected gears with correct rotation speed something based on the link below, but using loop iteration number as gear name and doing the adding and multiplying based on previous gears information http://deborahrfowler.com/MathForVSFX/GearRatio.html where I'm stuck is figuring out the previous gears name and adding new gears info in it. any help will be appreciated!!! thank you in advance!
