Cable deformation help
show user profile  MrMushroom
Hi, i am working on a robot arm for a university project and i am having a few issues getting the cable to arm correctly.

Here is the robot arm in its normal state.

I have added bones to the cable and a orientation constrain at both ends, with a HI solver to control the movement. When the arm moves however the cable does not follow it how i could like, here are some photos of the issue.

Here is how it looks with all the bones and helpers showing.

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

This may work.
Try using spline line as bone , with multiple vertex, to have more control.
You need to rig it right.
