RodConstraint

Show Deprecated

A RodConstraint constrains two Attachments to remain separated by the value specified by RodConstraint.Length. While the attachments remain at a set distance from one another, they can both rotate freely.

By default, RodConstraints do not have angle constraints and allow each part to rotate without angular constraint. However, setting LimitsEnabled reveal the LimitAngle0 and LimitAngle1 properties, which control the maximum angle that either end of the rod may have against the respective attachment. In the image below, the two parts are joined by a RodConstraint with 45 degree limits on each end. The red part is not Anchored.

Note that if this constraint attaches one part (A) to another part (B) that is anchored or connected to an anchored part (Z), part A will not be locally simulated when interacting with a player.

Summary

LimitAngle0

LimitAngle0 determines the maximum angle between the rod and Attachment0 when LimitsEnabled is true. Otherwise, this property is hidden in the Properties window and does nothing.

LimitAngle1

LimitAngle1 determines the maximum angle between the rod and Attachment1 when LimitsEnabled is true. Otherwise, this property is hidden in the Properties window and does nothing.

In the image below, the two parts are joined by a RodConstraint with 45 degree limits on each end. The red part is not Anchored.

LimitsEnabled

LimitsEnabled determines whether the LimitAngle0 and LimitAngle1 properties control the angles between the rod and the respective attachments, as well as whether those properties are visible in the Properties window in Studio.
