Hello everyone

sry if posted in wrong forum section.

Im trying to figure out how i can achieve having a robot moving to pick up Letters of the alphabet A-Z to place them into a word. The robot moves to 1 side to pick up the letter than places it in the correct position of the word. i have the robot moving and all, just need to no how to get the robot to spell the word and also when the text is changed the robot will change it? Any help greatly appreciated or any tutorials would be helpful if anyone could point me into the right direction. ty. Is this even possible lol

Generally speaking I would do the movement of the text using constraint tags (in the character tag section). For example, you might have a copy of the letter attached to your robot in the way you want and another copy of the letter in place. Hide those copies. Then you'd have your third copy on the floor for the robot to pick up. Use a PSR constraint to constrain the letter's position/rotation to the one attached to the robot when the robot gets in position. Move the robot to the other hidden letter and then switch the constraint to that letter.

Hard to be more specific than that without seeing your setup.
