When using the findpartonray, I get the position and normal of where the ray hits
If I wanted to make a CFrame on this position, how would I calculate in the normal?
also, once I do get the cframe of an object with the normal of the surface its ‘stuck to’ calculated, what if I wanted to rotate the object around its local space y axis, how would that factor into the cframe?
i’ve been working countless hours on a bodygyro to keep a bike standing upright along it’s Z or roll axis.
A thing i’ve learned about adding a CFrame.new(hitPos, hitPos+hitNormal) is that it’s relative to the world space so it’s going to point in 1 direction but the orientation won’t be the same as the orientation as the bike that needs to go in different spaces.
I think this can be solved with the new CFrame.lookAt, since it allows you to specify an ‘up’ vector.
CFrame.lookAt ( Vector3 at, Vector3 lookAt, Vector3 up = Vector3.new(0, 1, 0) )
Creates a new CFrame located at at and facing towards lookAt , optionally specifying the upward direction (by default, (0, 1, 0)).
This function replaces the CFrame.new(Vector3, Vector3) constructor (see above) which accomplished a similar task. This function allows you to specify the up Vector, using the same default as the old constructor.
Hello echo Reaper I have been working on an engine and I have not found out yet how to do the slope alignment but sense I have found this thread it has helped tremendously so I first wanna just say thanks for giving the solution for this CFrame normal thing. now for the second thing I need some help on turning this into something that only affects the X,Z axis and no other axis’s if you could help me out on this it would be very help full for me and I would be heavily grateful.
If you want it to not affect the Y axis, then you can just manually put in the numbers like so:
-- first I would use workspace:Raycast as :FindPartOnRay is deprecated
local result = workspace:Raycast(...)
if result then
local hitPos = result.Position
local hitNormal = result.Normal
-- remove the Y axis from the position
local pos = Vector3.new(hitPos.X, 0, hitPos.Z)
local hitCF = CFrame.lookAt(pos, pos+hitNormal)
local hitCFrame = CFrame.lookAt(hitPos, hitPos+hitNormal)
