After weeks of playing with pulleys and belts I finally got a system up and
working and on my website.
It's in Tools under Pov Files at http://leroyw.byethost15.com/
It is a little complicated, you choose a belt type then fix a pulley style.
Then place a number of pulleys with different radii and make a belt. Finally you
put them all together.
I made a pov file for each of these things and a master file to keep track and
hopefully make life simpler.
What you get when your done is a union of lathe objecta(Pulleys) and
a mesh2 belt(with uv mapping) placed in the z=0 plane with default textures,
ready to animate.
Hope you can use it. I'm going to make a Hot Rod.
