Re: Re: Trying to animate the rotation of a plane about an axis using dynamic visualizer - MoviePlot3D.nb (0/1)

I figured out the correct syntax (duh) to add the PlotRange option so that the graph of the wheel's plane is always enclosed by the same sized box and so the true orientation of the plane is preserved allowing me to see how it changes as the trailing arm rotates. If anyone is interested in viewing the movieplot of the wheel plane, it's here http://www.freewebs.com/likeoldsportscars/Wheel_Plane.nb .

Thanks for the replies. I've tried inserting the PlotRange option in various different ways trying to get Mathematica to plot the graph but I get an error message everytime. Here's a 3D plot without the PlotRange option that produces a graph but without the scaling that I'd like. Could someone modify this notebook by inserting the PlotRange option so I could see the correct way to do it? A range of -10 to 10 for all coordinates would be fine.

Hello,

I'm trying to use dynamic visualizer 1.1 to graph a MovePlot3D
expression showing the rotation of a plane but I keep getting error
messages like "MathLink Parsing Error: Couldn't Parse a valid MathLink
Expression for MovePlot3D". I have included the Mathematica notebook
of the MoviePlot3D expression I'm trying to graph as an attachment
with this post (I hope that's allowed).

What I am trying to do is visualize how the plane of a car's wheel
changes as the semi-trailing arm it is attached to rotates from, say,
q=0 degrees (parallel to ground) to q= -90 degrees (trailing arm
rotated up 90 degrees).

I am able to graph it using just Mathematica 5.0 after loading
graph and 400 for another) so that you can't get an accurate picture
of how the plane's orientation really changes as the trailing arm
rotates. So my question is, can I use dynamic visualizer to animate
how the wheel's plane changes as the trailing arm rotates like you
could, for example, with a CAD program?
