Create a complex model using Construction planes and Transform tools
In this video, Andrew will introduce you to the new tutorial on creating a Pivoting Camera Mount. He will walk you through the stages of this design - creating a set of teeth and joints, locking features to position the camera precisely and so on.
In this episode, Andrew will generate a pair of interlocking disks that will be used as a tool to keep the teeth meshing correctly throughout the entire design. He will create a test part for the teeth using push/pull and Transform and will show you how this approach is not the right one for this kind of design.
In this episode, Andrew will navigate you through proper design of symmetrical teeth for the interlocking disks using Construction Planes to make angled teeth. At the end, he will show you how this approach is correct when creating symmetrical parts.
In this video, Andrew will import an aluminum extrusion to the design and will position the imported part according to the design.
Andrew will show the modifications he made to the design, explain why and how those were made. He will a new body, a tab that will be connecting the discs and constraint aluminum extrusion part when they are bolted together.
In this episode, Andrew will create new sketches and will start building off of the top pivot body. He will generate several individual bodies using those sketches.
In this video, Andrew will assemble the pieces he created in the previous parts of the tutorial and will finish up the Pivoting Camera Mount design.
