yeah Im a newb, and this is my first post, i made this mechanincal foot thing and i was wondering how i would go about making the hydraulics pose without having to reposition them manually. I added armatures to the toes and the base, and can pose them easy but i want the hydraulics to slide in and out and rotate with the bones. can this be done?
Welcome to the forums! Have you seen BlenderArt Magazine? Check out issue #11 - dedicated to mechanical. It may have the information you are looking for.
thanks i looked up the mag and it did have some awsome info for a tank im working on, but it didnt have what i needed for this, i did find a tuturial that worked well enough, i was just looking for the wrong words.
