Float in space and come together to join and form a shape of Tetrahedron
show user profile  ominilight2010
I have created an Tetrahedron shape with match stick in 3dsmax. I am now looking to give a animation where the sticks should float in space and come together and join to form this Tetrashape.

Please help me how I can do this also any links of tutorials on this

Advance thanks.

Put a bomb inside it and scrub back and forth on the timeline.

You can set max and min poly counts for the fragments, so if your matchsticks are 6 poly's set the max and min to 6.

[edit] ...though I haven't tested that. It might break it into random 6-poly objects.

Else... just animate it by hand, can do it in a few minutes without breaking a sweat.

@ Herfst1 I could be wrong but i think he has the shape made of match sticks and he wants to animate the 6 sticks coming together.

depends on the quality your looking for but a quick way to do it would be animate it backwards and swap the keys - hers my 2 min example
