I like to know how everything works under the hood, so I am not afraid of low-level stuff like bits, buffers, pointers, stack, heap, threads, shaders and of course Math.

Now I am slowly specializing on 3D for Web, from raw WebGL to libraries and frameworks with different levels of abstractions.

I like to speak C++ (mostly with modern dialect) and Python, but I also started to like my new “tool” named Go.

Simple Clock

Complex component transformations, like rotation of one component around another one, are usually accompanied by frustration with translation/rotation matrices, matrix inverses, quaternions and other fun stuff that rapidly gets out of hand.
In this article I will start presenting the basics of a relatively simple approach that will allow you to make you models even more appealing, by embedding small animations or functionality illustrations.

In previous part this series, we discussed about basics of component transformations using three.js, while in this part we will see how the presented approach can be applied to a more complex hierarchical transformations and even add some interaction.
