I’ve got a Star Trek model with sliding shuttlebay doors. There are four panels on each side and the slide into each other like pocket doors. I’d like to rig them in such a way that I can grab one of the center panels and moving it will cause the panels on either side to slide away from center and in to each other as if on rails. Like an IK armature only with rails instead of joints I guess.
Anyone know how to rig what I’ve described?
edit: I’ve added some images of what I want to automate and make nice and smooth.
