Smile Hinges

I tried to build a hinge effect with two polycubes, using the ins key and moving the little circle icon to an appropriate local (then I could use the rotate tool and simulate the effect...) Altough It worked, I wish to know if there is a better or most usual way to do this.

Here's my model:


Thanks.

I just rotate and key the motion for animation.

I wish I could find some kind of "snap to" tool when I use the rotate tool so things don't overlap. A tool like "make rigid" could be useful too. Those tools exist?

Thanks.

Mário.

I don't think there is anything to make the rotate snap to a specific location. If you want precise rotations, just enter values into the channel box. If you want something to rotate a full turn, key once at 0 then key again at 360.
