Attach RDB Hinge constraint to animated object

Recommended Posts

I thought this would be relatively easy but I've spent all day trying to figure it out and failed.


I have a cable that I need to swing under an animated object. The cable is attached at both ends so it is the loop that is swinging. I tried this with a wire solver and it worked fine. The problem is that the cable is supposed to be almost solid in it's rigidity and no matter how high I turned up the stretch and bend values I couldn't achieve this with the wire solver.


The cable only needs to swing from side to side so I thought an RDB object with a hinge constraint might do the job instead but as I quickly found you can't attach a hinge constraint to a moving object.


Is there a way to do this?
