Mechanical Animation in Motion Builder?

Is it possible to create vehicle rigs for use in motion builder? What about things like pistons, cranks and gears?

I'm betting you've already figured this out...

But...
I've connected this machine as a test for how to rig mechanicals in MB. It worked and was a bit simpler than it was in lw.
MB&Machines


All kinds of pluses for this program!!

Hi Shade01,

Using a combination of Relation constraints and Limits, it's possible to simulate most mechanical operations. I've seen vehicle rigs, with suspensions, robotic arms, you name it.

Cheers,
