Telescope fishing rod

Recommended Posts

Hi Cafe

 

How would you approach making a realistic fishing rod Rig? I fiddled with some constraints but that was quite unstable. Here is an example of what I am after >

When you say 'rig', what do you need - 1 slider or control that makes all the pieces slide out ? And how should they do that, all at once, or staggered, one at a time ? And does the rig need to do anything else apart from that ?

  • Hi CBR!

     

    I would like to have one slider which would slide all out from the tip in realistic fashion. So, tip extends to maximum then drags following part, then that part extends fully followed by another etc.

     

    thanks

    Ah OK. I am probably not the person to answer this, but just wanted to get your requirements clear so when our Xpresso geniuses get here they know what they're aiming for...

    I think this does it. I used clamp and iteration
