In fact, if just looking at the numerical results providing meaningful information, I would have stopped there. The difference between raw numbers and the 2-D plots is night and day.<br /><br />Also, showing each axis rotation discretely illustrates how the rotation of Euler angles/matrices works. Real world rotations occur about each axis simultaneously, this is where matrix rotation can fail due to gimbal lock.<br /><br />Finally, I really would like to increase my Python, NumPy, and matplotlib skills. Most engineers coming out of college today know matlab and get a lot of use of it. I didn't get exposed to matlab but want that same type of power available to me. I hope to leverage and build upon my knowledge of Python.

The graphical nature of this work helps to clarify this issue at hand and makes it worthwhile to share with others. It is good to update the blog after a long hiatus. Over all, I think it may be fun to come up with Python, NumPy, matplotlib hacks.Mike Petryhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00900707625184132791noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-10244190.post-33221002716026981462010-08-21T18:21:00.327-04:002010-08-21T18:21:00.327-04:00Is this just fun and games or are you trying to ac...Is this just fun and games or are you trying to achieve something with this?
