Description

The Small Pivot is a component that includes a buildable rotating block. It is designed to allow rotation of objects on a build.

Usage

The Small Pivot can operate in two modes: Servo (default) and Velocity. To switch between modes, press the V key to open the component's information interface.

In this interface, there are two additional configurations possible:

  • Max Rotation Speed which determines the maximum rotation speed in rotations per second.
  • Acceleration which determines the rate (in rotations per second per second) at which the pivot will accelerate to reach its Max Rotation Speed.

Servo Mode

In servo mode, the device rotates to a precise position determined by the data received through its data port. It accepts normalized values between -1.0 and +1.0, which correspond to rotations of -360° and +360°. This effectively means that the values 0.0, -1.0 and +1.0 will result in the same servo position.

Velocity Mode

In velocity mode, the device operates continuously in the direction indicated by the data from its port, accepting values between -1.0 to +1.0 to determine it's speed and rotation direction. 1.0 means Max Rotation Speed.

Builds installed on a moving part cannot collide with a parent or sibling build. They can only collide with the terrain or other separate builds.
