Gun Rigging

Recommended Posts

How do I go about rigging the bones in a hand gun model so that the chamber slided when the gun fires and is cocked? I can't seem to get the bones right....

You could use a two-bone chain, with the parent set to scale along the Z-axis. Then, constrain your "chamber" bone to translate to the child bone in the chain. It will slide back and forth along a straight line, but without changing dimensions.

You don't. You tell it to scale, instead. You can force it to scale along its Z-axis only, instead of in three dimensions. If you constrain the "chamber" bone to a child of the scaling bone, it will slide along the Z-axis of the scaling bone, but because it's not a child, it won't scale itself.
