I need a hydraulic pump to operate something.
I recently looked at this tutorial:
When it got to the track to constraint part i could not figure it out at all. Very frustrating.
I want a hydraulic pump to operate correctly, but when i add the constraints, nothing happens, and if i change the x,y,z settings then my model gets construed out of its original position.
I don’t care how i do it, i just need a way to make my pump work accurately.
I’ve included some pictures. The first and second pictures show how i’ve rigged my model.
The third and fourth pictures are the actual pump one in wireframe and one in solid just to get a better idea of the parts. The pump needs to push the model up as you can see in the first to second pictures. It doesn’t need to physically push it up, just appear to.
The green circles indicate pivot points. The orange piece grips around the pipe.
Tell me if i’m not being clear enough.
I appreciate any help with this.
