Being new to blender < two weeks) i scavenged the net for tutorials to help me on my way.
A lot of tutorials i have seen seem to leave out some steps in the process. Most of the times i can figure it out by my self, but not this time.
At the moment i am working on this tutorial http://members.yourlink.net/gruff/mesh/ the problem i have is that when i want to spin the exterior of the rotor (step 6) it only spins to the left and makes a big loop. ( i clicked the clockwise button to try if yhay changed the direction of the spin, but to no avail)
When i moved the mesh for the exterior to the right and spin it and that worked, but it still formed an enormous loop (resizing only left me withe a deformd exterior).
When i moved on to the jet engine tutorial on the same page, i ran in trouble when trying to spin-dub the flaps. when i do that it spins around a very small center making a clustered cone of flaps.
My question is: is there something i am overseeing (did the maker of the tutorial leave something out that is ‘for granted’) or is it something that is wrong with blender (sometimes when i start blender up and i try to spin (step 6) it still rotates to the left but in the right proportion. when i then do a reload of my saved work and try it again the proportions are huge again)
