    Truly annoying ad that makes it hard to follow the tutorial. Skipped it just because of that, so your annoying trick to try to force me to watch it didn't work

    Hi!
    How would it be a MEL script for a Rubik's cube?
    Do you think you could make a video about that?
    Thanks for your videos!

    I am currently working on a project with gears, a crackshaft and a connecting rod, so thought I would go about it with dynamics, using a vortex to turn a fan that then connects though to the gears and other parts. Just thought it maybe easier for what I am doing, not too sure, still learning what way is the best way. Thanks for this video
