Movement Constraints

Got an idea to improve SketchUp?

Movement Constraints

Postby DFB » Mon Mar 20, 2017 4:20 pm

Is there a way to constrain component movement by one or more constraints? For example, I am designing a pantograph for my workshop:

I would like to constrain the movements of the arms to pivot about their respective pivot points.

And, please upload your model as V6 (save as/sketchup version V6).

Hello, Derwin Brown,

Using MSPhysics, here is one way to attach constraints to it:
Pantorouter.skp


When you get MSPhysics installed and click the MSPhysics blue play button, you will have two controllers to control that thing.

Regards,
Anton

Thank you for your reply. I have investigated the MSPhysics plugin (thanks to Anton_S) and it has help me with my design.

Why do you want the model uploaded as V6? Is this a standard for model uploading?

Some members still use SketchUp 6 and up so to make sure files can be opened it is always a good idea to save in earlier versions.

SketchUp 6 is the Escort MkI of the CAD world.
