Hello,

I am in the process of learning how to rig. I have modelled a robot and I'm trying to rig the legs to move a certain way, but without any luck.

Please see the attached images at this link - http://www.digitaltutors.com/forum/showthread.php?24877-Robot-rigging-question.-Need-help-please!-(Maya)

Basically, I want point 'A' to work as a knee pivot, causing point 'B' and 'C' to close and come together when the leg bends (and vice versa when it moves outward). I want point 'D' to be a fixed position, with the leg moving forward, back, right and left from that point.

Whenever I have tried to rig the leg, point 'B' and 'C' have either stayed the same distance or just moved outward, and not inward.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Matt.
