I have tried this previously but my knowledge on animation and rigging for rigid linkage like this is limited at best.
I have a trailer model in Blender that has 4 rotating casters attached via rigid linkages to the central steering mechanisms, also connected by linkages. See picture:
I need to animate the model such that when the front ‘hound’ is rotated (right side center, has the long tongue sticking out of it) the linkage rotates the casters appropriately. What is the best way to do this? I have attached the base blend file as well.
