    People,

    I am just starting with Blender and Verge3D but while I have an actual project that I need Blender and Verge3D for, to begin with I just want to get famiiiar with all the software so I have this idea of creating a Blender “Help Totem Pole”. So far I have this:

    https://cdn.soft8soft.com/AROAJSY2GOEHMOFUVPIOE:2656229362/applications/HelpTotem/HelpTotem.html

    Where I will put text notes on the faces of the cubes.

    Now in the browser I want to:

    – Have the cubes only lit from a lamp on the x axis

    – Select each cube independently for rotation around the z axis by clicking the cube directly or using the up and down cursor keys from a previously selected cube.

    – Use the Left and Right cursor keys to rotate the selected cube around the z axis.

    Could someone tell me how to do this or just provide a working demo for me which I can build upon?

    Thanks!

    Phil.

    You need to use Sun lightsource that you can direct how you need it.

    Select each cube independently for rotation around the z axis by clicking the cube directly or using the up and down cursor keys from a previously selected cube.

    – Use the Left and Right cursor keys to rotate the selected cube around the z axis.

    You can study Industrial robot example it has all features you need.

    Ah, OK, thanks.

    Oh, OK – I will have a look at that.

    Thanks!

    I had a look and yes, it appears all the information for what I want to do is there but I think that is too much for me to break down ATM – rotating a single cube example is what I need I think . .

    Thanks,

    Mikhail,

    Thanks for the example – it was interesting but I need something else (I attach my 3 cube blend):

    – NO arrows on screen

    – Select each cube independently via a mouse click as normal

    – Use the Left and Right Arrow keys to ROTATE ONLY the selected cube around the Z Axis ONLY – INSTEAD of moving the drawing left or right.

    – Use the Up or Down Arrow keys Select to select the cube directly ABOVE or BELOW from the currently selected cube – INSTEAD of moving the drawing up or down.

    Does this make sense? Is it possible?

    Thanks,
    Phil.

    I am on Linux (Fedora 31) but when I look at the output from “Sneak Peak” I cannot select a cube and cannot rotate t with the cursor keys – am I missing something?

    Thanks,
    Phil.

    Logic will not work with sneak peak, you need to run the application from app manager.

    Mikhailo, Yuri,

    Ah . . thanks for that – working now.

    I noticed the slowness of web interactivity before – is it possible to speed up the rotation so that it only needs ONE Left or Right click to more quickly rotate a cube 90 degrees?

    Hi,

    you can use the animate parameter puzzle to animate the object rotation with a single click:

    Changed a little bit the example. Now the arrows rotates cube on 90 degrees.
