MODO Rollaway Door Rig

MODO Rollaway Door Rig

For the first four years of my 3D career, I created industrial visualization for the oil and gas industry in Houston, Texas. This type of work often involved creating hard-surface models and rigging and animating mechanical items. Over the years I was tasked with animating roll away door type structures more times than I can remember. There are several ways you can go about tackling a rig for this setup and I’d like to share this one I built in MODO.

This MODO source file includes a basic rig of a six-panel roll-away door that can be animated by adjusting a single channel. Panels can be easily removed or added if your project calls for a different number of panels.
