Hi everyone! So I got this idea to build something like the first petrol engine, and thought this should be a simple matter to rig.
Tho I can't seem to get it to work, I don't know if it's my dynamics rigging that is at fault, or that there is an mechanical engineering feat involved, so that it's the ratio's between the pistons that screw things up, but I feel as thou it should work.
So if anyone feels compelled to look at it and give me a pointer please do :)

Okey, so I decided to change my approach to go with xpresso instead.
But I'm having difficulties getting the last part of the rigging to click..
I can't seem to get the forearm rotating so it's level with the basearm, and also I think I need a way to offset the motion of the basearm inbetween the Z positions at 90° relative to 270° so that they line up with the forearm.

Anyone got a guess? :)

Cheers!
Albin

Thanks for the model to test on, sorry I didn't have time till now - Connectors are the way to go, I think it's just a matter of aligning the Connectors properly and setting the Dynamics tags correctly
