    how we we make it a dynamic spring board? ex; if you were to drop a big ball on it, it would react from the weight of the ball without manual keyframing.

  • When I choose the Shoulder and the Hand and create IK Chain, there are 3 null objects created simultaneously. What is this happening?

  • What if I wanted to make multiple springs? so the same set up but basically duplicated above it multiple times, but everything is still controlled by the single goal? I am doing some tests and not getting a working result.
