rotation x and y or z not working


Recommended Posts

var cylinder = BABYLON.Mesh.CreateCylinder("cylinder", 10, 10, 10, 10, 1, scene, false);
cylinder.rotation.x = -Math.PI/2;

engine.runRenderLoop(function () {
  cylinder.rotation.z += 0.01;

This should be rotation by z, but it rotation by y???

If I change the "cylinder.rotation.z += 0.01;" to "cylinder.rotation.y += 0.01;", it have the same result.

Hi Mars,

let's make a playground so that we can all see what you mean: http://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#TRIV4#0

I think that problem is that when you rotate the cylinder around it's x-axis the direction of it's z-axis changes. Not sure what you final goal is, but if you jsut want a cylinder laying on its side and beeing rotated, you could bake the first rotation into the cylinder and then do the other rotations: http://www.babylonjs-playground.com/#TRIV4#1

Is that the desired result?
