Basic Gear Driver Wanted - Planetary Reduction Gearbox
I'm quite experienced with modelling in 3DS Max, but a newcomwer to Maxscript.
I've built a 3 stage planetary reduction gearbox and have succeeded in animating the top set, but I have no flexibility in controlling the speed of the gearbox.
What I want is a means of setting (and changing) the input speed of the top sun gear and have the the whole gear train follow suit.
The math of the gear ratios is no problem, the scripting is my weak point.
I'm working with 3D Max 7.
