Detailed 3D model of modular solar panels with solar tracking and wiring.
Model is ready for animation in .max formats.
Tilt angles can be changed easily - vertically (Frame object) 25 degrees X axis (from default 30 degrees to 55), horizontally (Slewing_Drive object) 360 degrees Z axis. Objects are properly linked, look-at animation constraints are used for the actuator, and wire movement is controlled by spline HI solvers.
Exported formats include two versions: - 30 degree vertical tilt and 0 horizontal - 45 degree vertical tilt and 35 horizontal (as shown in the first two preview images)
Polygons and vertices: 402468 polygons 417729 vertices
Model split into 41 object (including 24 helper objects). The 26 panels are grouped into one object. 7 textures included (with .max formalts).
Materials used for preview renders are only available in 3dsmax 2011 file! Exported and tested in Deep Exploration. Use max2011 format for best results.
