Opposite rotation of two objects - Pivots problem

Recommended Posts


Hey guys

So I've just recently started with 3DS...and I'm studying hierarchy now.

I've made this simple model of a robot and I'm trying to make its handles move against each other.

On the tutorial I studied, they said just opposite the pivot points and so I did. Yet each time I rotate them they rotate to the same side and not against each other

Any help on why?

here are some pictures to help understand my point better

I'm not great at rigging but one possible solution would be to use the Wire Parameters'



so you want to wire the rotation of Z axis to the rotation of the other Z axis. Only difference is for the second one you want to add a '-' sign.



-right click object one

-Wire parameters > Transform > Rotation> Z axis

-then click object two, > Transform > Rotation> Z axis

-When the wire ialogue box opens, add a minus in front of one of the 'Z_Rotation' expressions.
