In this video we review the basic trigonometry needed in order to get the Vpython visualization to work. With this quick trig tutorial, you should have the math you need to finish the project.
As we move forward, we could really benefit from a better text editor than IDLE to edit our Python Code. In today’s lesson I show you how to download and install Pyscripter, which will make your python coding much easier. I suggest you follow these instructions and move to Pyscripter, as I will be using it for future lessons.
In this lesson we show you how to animate, or bring your Vpython objects to life by changing their parameters dynamically. In later lessons we will do this via life readings from sensors.
In this lesson we need to become more comfortable working with objects in Vpython. WE will show how to create an animated thermometer using the simple commands we have already learned.
In this lesson we show you how to install Visual Python (Vpython) and show you how to begin to build 3D visuals. We introduce you to some of the basic objects and how how control how they look and where they are.
