Learn the “rules of thumb” that enable us to put numbers to friction and make sound decisions about how to work with it.
About the Course
It’s easy to gloss over the term “friction”, but how does it really apply to our systems? It can hinder and it can help, but how much?
There are some basic “rules-of-thumb” that enable us to put numbers to friction and, in turn, make sound decisions about how to work with it. If you only have one high-efficiency pulley, where should it go in the system? Learn all of this and more by joining us inside Advanced Rigging Physics 3: Friction.
