Topics I've Started

I need a C program using OpenGL to create a pendulum that rotates about its string on a...

19 April 2014 - 05:51 AM

I need it for my mini project. I havent understoods the basics for the rotation yet. I have the source code for creating the pendulum with the thread. I understand that I have to create a matrix for translating the tip of the string to the origin, then rotate the entire figure, and translate it back to the initial position; and multiply all these matrices. I dont understand how to create these matrices, please help me. To create the sphere in the pendulum, I've used recursive defintion of the sphere using tetrahedrons. Please help me, I need the source code. Thank you.
This is the source code so far:
#include<stdio.h>
#include<msclr/glut.h>
#include<math.h>
int n=10;
GLfloat v[4][3]={{0.0,0.0,1.0},{0.0,0.942809,-0.33333},{-0.816497,-0.471405,-0.33333},{0.816497,-0.471405,-0.333333}};
GLfloat a[2][3]={{0.0,0.0,-0.333333},{0.0,10.0,-0.333333}};
void normalize(GLfloat *p)
{
    double d=0.0;
    int i;
    for(i=0;i<3;i++)
        d+=p[i]*p[i];
    d=sqrt(d);
    if(d>0.0)
        for(i=0;i<3;i++)
            p[i]/=d;
}
void triangle(GLfloat *a,GLfloat *b,GLfloat *c)

    glBegin(GL_POLYGON);
        glNormal3fv(a);
        glVertex3fv(a);
        glVertex3fv(b);
        glVertex3fv©;
    glEnd();
}
void divide_triangle(GLfloat *a,GLfloat *b,GLfloat *c,int n)

    GLfloat v1[3],v2[3],v3[3];
    int j;
    if(n>0)
    {
        for(j=0;j<3;j++)
            v1[j]=a[j]+b[j];
        normalize(v1);
        for(j=0;j<3;j++)
            v2[j]=a[j]+c[j];
        normalize(v2);
        for(j=0;j<3;j++)
            v3[j]=c[j]+b[j];
        normalize(v3);
        divide_triangle(a,v2,v1,n-1);
        divide_triangle(c,v3,v2,n-1);
        divide_triangle(b,v1,v3,n-1);

    divide_triangle(v[0],v[3],v[1],n);
    divide_triangle(v[0],v[2],v[3],n);
}

    glClearColor(1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0);
