Pulley Belt

8 votes

Technically you can probably call it a rounded isosceles trapezoid but it will be more useful as a base for path of bicycle chains or pulley belts. When both radii are the same and spline set to renderable, it could also be used as a simple chain link.

Simple Catenary

Simple two-point spline (i.e. just the starting point and the end point and two bezier handles)  approximately in the shape of catenary curve (the shape formed by a hanging rope).

Chain Rigger

5 votes

Description:

Tool for creating a rigged chain along a spline.

Functions:

* create a chain of 1 or 2 different chain segments along a spline
* spline can be animated or linked and the chain will follow
* when spline is closed chain drive can be animated by an objects X-Rotation
* chain drive speed can be ajusted by a radius (of the rotation motor-object)

Manual:

Please watch video tutorial below.

* create a spline and 1 or 2 chain elements
* run script and select objects

Catenary curve generator

4 votes

A tool that allows you to generate Catenary curves (realistically looking hanging rope/chain)

UPDATE 2013-06-04:
- Now you can create Catenary curves from your current scene selection. Very useful for bridges, electricity poles, ropes etc...
- You can also delete objects from the end anchor point list
- I've also added the feature to delete all the curves, or the last created, which makes it easier to navigate in more complex scenes

Quick Parent Link

4 votes

Quick Parent Link is a script to allow you to quickly pick a chain of obects to set them into a parent/child hierarchy. It works a little more efficiently than the native Select and Link tool (which requires you to click child, drag to parent, let go, then select that parent as a child again and drag to its parent, etc).

Chain Rigger

This tool creates a simulation rig for a chain (free or constrained) with a few simple steps. The rig is an optimized one, very stable and fast to simulate, based on a reactor rope.

Stretchy IK Chain

7 votes

This script will convert a bone chain into a stretchable IK chain, in either squash or scale mode. Just double click the first bone of the chain and run the script.

The macroscript will be under the "Toke Scripts" category.

Stretchy Bone Chain

11 votes

This script makes a bone chain stretchable, in either squash or scale mode. Just double click the first bone of the chain and run the script.

The macroscript will be under the "Toke Scripts" category. This is my first official script, so if there are any problems please let me know.

Chain Tread

17 votes

A script to animate bicycle chain links, tank treads, escalator steps, etc. along a spline path. It's not a great script, but does allow for complex animated motion on the path (start, stop, slow, reverse, speed up); all you need do is animate the dummy controller properly.
