We will join the tool to the Belt at two separate 'anchor' Points, like Pins on a Chain.
In this Step, we use a new set of Piggyback Sliders to give the second 'anchor' point.
This Piggyback Slider Set is the same as the first set, but it runs before (ahead of, sooner than) the Master-Machine-Angle by 30º.
This means we can have 12 Tools along the length of the Belt. (360/30 = 12)
With this Piggyback Sliders. We can:
|•||Use again the horizontal Line in the Base-Part for the X-Slider.|
|•||Use again the X and Y motions for the the X and Y Sliders.|
NOTE: Remember - you can use the Motion-Path tool to add as many Motion-Points along the Motion-Path as you like. However, we do not have a Motion-Path in this Tutorial.
See Tutorial 16: Motion-Path FB and Blend-Curves
Add Piggyback Sliders - Slider Set 2
Add the new Sliders:
We give names: X-Slider1 and Y-Slider1 to the Sliders we added in Step 15.1. Here we will add two new Sliders, We will rename them to X-Slider2 and Y-Slider2.
|STEP 1: ||Add Sliding-Part, to the same Line as X-Slider1|
|STEP 2: ||Edit the new Sliding-Part, Add a vertical Line. Close the Part-Editor|
|STEP 3: ||Add a Sliding-Part to the vertical Line|
|STEP 4: ||Add a Motion-Dimension FB to the Sliding-Part that moves along the horizontal Line - rename it to X-Slider2|
|STEP 5: ||Add a Motion-Dimension FB to the Sliding-Part that moves along the vertical Line - rename it to Y-Slider2 |
|STEP 6: ||Edit the Base-Value of the new Motion-Dimension FBs to the same as the First set of Piggyback Sliders|
Tip: Do ALT+F a number of times to move the first Slider-Set along the Belt path.
