One of the things i'd like to do is create an IK that only bends forward and backward on a single local axis. At the top, I want a control to change the direction of that axis.
so the ik goes only forward and back, no sideways movement. And I control which direction forward is.
I can't get this to work with Limit Location or constraint combination I've tried so far. It messes with the overall direction control or the placement of the foot after the chain :(
I'm rigging a robot, and due to the (very specific) placement of his parts, his legs only bend one way, with a rotater cup as a hip socket. I can't quite figure out how to do this. Any help would be much appreciated!!
Thank you in advance,
