Hello!

I have a pendulum model I am animating and I have all of the gears working with xpresso but I can’t quite figure out how to setup the ‘verge’ (part that the pendulum attaches to that articulates against the main ‘escapement’ gear) so that is just ‘works’. I found an older thread on this forum with this person’s C4D example, but I don’t know the approach for the scripting:

I thought about trying dynamics with a hinge connector, but my setup only makes the parts fall in 3D space. There has to be a way with just Xpresso, but I’m stuck on how to apply a sine wave or equivalent to make the motion happen.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Ryan
