Hello,

I`ve just started in Maya. Im having a little trouble with a scene:

The scene have 3 objects just like this:

(sphere)
|
|
(crank hand)-----------------(crank body)

Layouted something like above.

The Sphere is a Active Rigid Body.
The Crank Hand is a Active Rigid Body.
The Crank Body is a common object.

The only feature to note, is that crank hand is parented with crank body.

My problem is:
When i Rotate the Crank Body, the Crank Hand rotates but does not collide with Sphere.
Crank Body and Sphere only interect if affected by field effect ( far as ive tryed ).

I think that when the Rigid Body is moved through a parental constraint it does not detect collisions. dunno.

Sorry for the lack of terms to explain my problem. Someone can help me?
