Re: Parametric model of robot arm

Hi, thanks for the fast response but using this approach will cause simulation issues as the absolute position of the parent and child object will remain the same and if the parent object is up scaled then the two intersect. So basically I would have to rectify the position of the entire robotic arm...

This is very cumbersom...
