I modeled a stethoscope and am having a real tough time rigging it. I want to be able to rotate the chestpiece (apparently that’s what the triangular part is called) and then subsequently be able to pull the two ear pieces away from each other. I managed to accomplish these two tasks independently, however, when I combined them things went crazy. Here are them independently:
And here is them together:
The problem is with the bones that have a follow to constraint for the curves. I parented them to the bone of the chestpiece so that they would rotate when the chestpiece rotates. The follow to constraint, though, messes with the positioning. When I rotate the bone of the chestpiece, the rotation of the ear piece bones is not in line.
I appreciate all the help I can get! You guys and girls are a lot smarter than me haha
