    Why dont you simply rig this?If this is just a mock-up model and it will be organic at the end i suggest complete rig that might be quite difficult to achieve if you are unexeperienced with rigging.

    Anyway you put it you will have to have complex interaction between parts.

    As for legs penetrating you could use clamp constrain on some future foot controller.

  • i want to stay in xpresso, for simple animation controll. and also, it will be a simple mechanic robot.

    in the end it won't be an organic animation, so i prefer not using riging. just very robotic motion

    I think he wants to do animation like here using 3DMax. Click on the images to play some very cool scripted spider animations.

    Or something like this.

    I think a crude spider animation could be done using XPresso in conjunction with regular animation. Don't ask me how though!!

    Check out srek's XPresso Multipede sample for some inspiration.

    Cactus Dan also had a Spider Rig sample somewhere.
