I tried to use the Curve modifier ...

    $\begingroup$ nah, not working. one end should be fixed while the other moves. it should move like this : i.ibb.co/qJH2j2Q/1a.jpg $\endgroup$ Nov 29 '21 at 11:55

Add the curve modifier as you probably did and move the curve.

If it does not work as expected, invert the curve direction (in edit mode for the curve, use the menu "segments/switch direction").

This may be easy solution for you, use curve as you did with your chain and use hook on the curve... set it to object that will be your CNC head and that 1 point of the curve next to the head will be hooked to it... Result is this: enter image description here

By moving the cube you can easily control whole movement, it has some limitations of course, but you can solve them as well

Here is the file for you:

Check it if you understand and see if it works, if you need to limit other movement, you should use another objects to control that curve

  • $\begingroup$ @MikoCG ... by moving Cube object you don't get desired movement ... it moves also the end of cable. $\endgroup$
