NAME

       SoRotor -

       The SoRotor class is a node used to animate rotations.

       Insert this node in your hierarchy to apply a continuous rotation to some geometry. Since
       this node inherits the SoRotation node, rotation is restricted around the axis specified
       in the rotation field.

SYNOPSIS

       #include <Inventor/nodes/SoRotor.h>

Detailed Description

       The SoRotor class is a node used to animate rotations.

       Insert this node in your hierarchy to apply a continuous rotation to some geometry. Since
       this node inherits the SoRotation node, rotation is restricted around the axis specified
       in the rotation field.

       The angle value of the SoRotation::rotation field (inherited by this node) gives the
       rotation direction. If the value is larger than 0.0, the rotation will be done in the
       counterclockwise direction, if it is negative the rotation will be done in the clockwise
       direction.

       Do not set the rotation value to exactly 0.0, as rotations are internally handled as
       quaternions, and when converting from an angle and a rotation value to a quaternion
       representation, the information about the angle 'gets lost' if there is no actual
       rotation.

       Note also that the rotation will start at the given angle value.

       FILE FORMAT/DEFAULTS:

           Rotor {
               rotation 0 0 1  0
               speed 1
               on TRUE
           }

   SoRotor::SoRotor (void) Constructor.
   SoRotor::~SoRotor () [protected, virtual] Destructor.

Member Function Documentation

   void SoRotor::initClass (void) [static] Sets up initialization for data common to all
       instances of this class, like submitting necessary information to the Coin type system.
       Reimplemented from SoRotation.

Member Data Documentation

   SoSFFloat SoRotor::speed Specifies the speed of rotation, in revolutions per second. Defaults
       to 1.0.
   SoSFBool SoRotor::on Enable/disable rotation. Default enabled.
