I wanted to know if any one had any neet ways of rigging a knee pad on. So that when the knee rotates the knee pad stays facing forward, with out rotating with the knee.

Have the knee pad a separate object and rotate constrain it to a null that is facing forward..

Wow that was quick.
Thanks for the reply thats prety nifty, I have never look at like that. I wrote a script that said when the joint rotates rotate the knee pad in the negative direction, and I multyplied by .7, and for the position I just parented.

Well.. you could do that too :)

It just depends how the knee pad you have would work.. and how much extra work you would like to do.. :)
