I'm new to rigging and this is my first major project with it. The goal is to rig my "transformer" body well. However, I'm running into issues with the posing as random parts of the mesh move.

At (0,0,0) is my rigged object. And to its left is an individual part-based object for reference.

Hand dislocated just by entering pose mode Hand dislocated just by entering pose mode.

When moving body parts the body just dislocates When moving body parts the body just dislocates.

  • $\begingroup$ There's a comprehesive multipart tutorial series about rigging a robot simiar to yours here. It uses Blender 2.8 but the workflow is the same in later versions. $\endgroup$

As Chris says, first thing, recalculate the normals in Edit mode (select all and ShiftN). For the parts that don't work, select them in Edit mode, remove them from all groups:

Then manually assign to the correct vertex group:
