Prismatic joints

Post by smilamc »

Hi, I am having trouble getting started with V-REP, I have two objects connected with a prismatic joint, I want the joint to expand and contract in a sinusoidal motion when simulated, I have the objects set up but I don't know how to make the joint slide.
Please help!

set the joint to the force/torque mode in the joint properties. Then in the joint dynamic properties, check motor enabled and control loop enabled.

Then you should be able to adjust the length of the prismatic joint with the simSetJointTargetPosition command.
