Hey! I am making a simulation for my calc 1 professor. He wants a simulation of a ferris wheel where I can check the positions of the passengers on the Y axis at different points in time during the rotations. What I need help with is how to arrange ferris wheel cabins (just a simple ellipse) in a circular pattern around the ferris wheels hub, and how to change their x and y positions to make them rotate manually.
I looked into just using rotations but it seems like if I use the translate and rotate methods I won’t be able to store and view the x and y positions of the cabins. I need to be able to do this freely to have the simulation have any worth.
Anybody know how to do this or can point me to a tutorial?
