I’m trying to animate a hydraulic cylinder (red) for a front loader arm (blue). The upper link (green) pushes the cylinder/piston when lifting the main arm (blue).
Q: But how can I keep this push-function (the piston “locked” in the cylinder) while at the same time being able to separately tilt the lower link back and fourth? (I can do each individually, but how combine the two in one mechanism? )
The current model has only a “push-bar” but no “telescope piston”.
