    So I'm trying to put a sawblade in my map, but it isn't spin. It's a prop_dynamic with the sawblade_moving.mdl model. In hammer it shows it moving, but in game it doesn't. Do I need to enable something on it to make it do it on its own, or just put a func_rotating? Why would it spin on its own in hammer, though?

    You need to set the animation, I think. There's a parameter in prop_dynamic called Default Animation or something like that (low down by default?), find the moving sawblade animation's name in the model browser and put that in there.

    Yep, that was it. Oddly enough, the spinning animation sequence is called "idle". Thanks again

    every prop with an animation has to have one named idle, i think
