Hi,

I have a question about angular velocity (in 3d). I get passed a rotation axis (vector) and the angle of rotation in radians from another software (let´s say from a scripted rigid body rotation). However, the rotation axis is normalised. How can I put these two together so the vector fully represents the angular velocity (as my understanding is that the length of the vector represents the angle of rotation normally)? Can I set the length of the rotation axis equal to 2pi/rotationangle? Or to put it differently, is the rotation axis vector of length 1.0 if the object rotated 360 degrees? Or is it of length 2pi?

Thank you in advance!
