Wing Fold and Pylon help

Recommended Posts

I.ve tried everything I can think of from linking to moving pivot points to make this work and "No Joy", The Wingfold is Animation_10, DeploymentMethod=MANUAL. The aircraft is just a Testbed. Any Ides's?

Fixed It. Read an earlier post on the same problem and it’s related to the CG. Left wing was custom made for testing.

another thing that causes probs with things rotating oddly is...make sure meshes are correct size...xform reset all before animating etc.

I made a small box for the fold pivot and animation to make linking changes and Reset Xform on the other meshes simpler. Saves a lot of reanimation time.

What I did was make a small box , Reset Xform and Pivot to center and then set the fold animation key to the box, then I could make changes to any of the meshes in the ‘Hierarchy’ from the Fuselage to the pylon and not lose the animation. I unlinked everything , then made changes ,Reset Xform and pivots, then put it back together. That way I could move the box position in the ‘Hierarchy’ till I got the animation correct. Didn’t try it all at once. The reason I did it this way was to teach myself how to fold a wing and keep the weapons in the correct position, The aircraft I’m doing this for has no room for many changes as it is a 90% complete aircraft, so I made the testbed AC.
