Linkage.001.blend (770 KB)
I’ve been watching tutorials on rigging, and I created the blue humanoid and rigged it. But I am still mystified by rigging a mechanical device.
The above image shows a crude representation of what I am trying to do. The black parts are stationary. The idea is to pull on the blue handle at the right end and the result will be a push of the purple sleeve at the left end.
I color coded each part to make it easier to communicate (i.e. add a bone from the red pin to the blue pin, or add a xyz constraint to the green link).
I also added (I think) the blender file in case it is needed.
Any help would be appreciated.
