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 (Panel_Axis object) 30 degrees, horizontally (Panel_Frame_02 objects via local axis) 25 degrees to both sides. Objects are properly linked, look-at animation constraints are used for the solar tracker pistons, and wires movement is controlled by spline HI solvers.
Exported formats include two versions: - 35 degree vertical tilt and 0 horizontal - 55 degree vertical tilt and 25 horizontal (as shown in the first two preview images)
Polygons and vertices: 314239 polygons 317783 vertices
Model split into 61 object (including 39 helper objects). The 18 panels are grouped into one object. 9 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.
