Move 2 Sliders at once?

Hello everyone,

fairly new to GH so bear with me please :slight_smile:

As an exercise i am trying to create a model based on this animation:


I got the rotations to work individually but am at a loss as how to get them to execute at the same time.
Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Just answering your initial question / topic:
there is no native way to move to sliders at once - but you can do it with a script:

and as a comment on your animation:
it is basically some sin() function stuff with offset…
sin(x + 0 Pi)
sin(x + 1/4 Pi)

sin(x + 7/4 Pi)

if this does not help i might find time later to help… kind regards -tom

might look like this (13.0 KB)

ok the math behind is some oscillation that can be calculated with sin() and cos() (7.8 KB)

kind regards -tom

Looks like it is a movement around circles in 3d space

:sweat_smile: Thx for all the .gh’s and help!

…but tbh that’s all a bit above my pay-grade here.

I should have known that the answers would be parametric based if i ask i the GH section but that’s not what i was looking for and should have been more specific. Sorry for that!

What im looking for is somewhat of a simple Bongo-like animation just to visualise a basic movement and maybe animate it.

That’s why i used real Rhino geometry/points/curves.
The model itself will be a one time use for a pendant(Goldsmith here) and will most likeley never be modified or changed in the ways parametric GH would permit and be usefull for.

Just looking for a ‘fast’ way to visualise a basic movement with/within existing geometry without the need to buy Bongo or work in AE.

Sorry again for the lack of Info, since i posted it with existing geometry i was expecting that to be used somehow… not real obvious in the gh section i admit :upside_down_face:

Yes, this looks like it could be what i need but i don’t have the knowledge to get it to work with the ‘point on curve’ slider in my .gh.

Have a look at this.

Evaluate curve does the same thing as point on curve if you reparamatrize your curve. (9.5 KB)

Yes. Thank you!
No real clue yet what’s going on but ill dig in a bit and try to understand.
Does not look to complicated so far.
