For My Baby Droid project, the problem has occurred to me that I have to rigger a piston (up here without problems with a lookat constraint). The problem is that when the piston reaches the maximum length should be deployed elsewhere as a telescope (so you can reach the maximum length).

Can you think of any way to fix this?

Thank you.

Position Constraint with both dummies as position targets set 50/50 to keep the telescoping cylinder at the half way point. Also a lookAt constraint to either dummy to keep the orientation correct.
