QGIS 2.18.5

I'm using Qgis2threejs to put this COLLADA model ontop of a point (open in IE, not chrome). You see how the web-preview animates perfectly and the blades are centred on the hub. When loading the model through Qgis2threejs, the 3D visualisation adds the model with the blades off-set from the hub. Is there a way to get the animation going as well?

I can give you only a hint concerning the offset of the blades because i faced the same problem.

What I did was getting google Sketch up and downloaded a model from their warehouse. I then checked if the model is placed on the center of the 3 axes and if not adjusted the model accordingly. After this you can export the model as colada *.dae file and thus make it usable in threejs. You might need to set the rotation and scale values inside the plugin to fit the model to your needs.

Concerning the animation i found this example on the threejs site. I will give it a try and keep you updated!
