stumped

Jay! Why does your robot's head shoot off to into the void whenever I move the whole body around?! It's downright wacky!

I'm stripping the robot down piece by piece trying to learn it's secrets.

Oh, but don't you doubt it, this Robot Challenge is still most definatly on.

That's a safety mechanism. Scrap bot never even thinks about turning away from the action or his head pops off. Seriously though you may wan't to select the whole model and delete its history. I tried to use locators to help in the animation process but it could still be tuff to animate him. Don't feel restricted to using the model the way I have it set up. If you want delete some of the soneections or change the hierarchy then you should go for it. All is fair in Robots and war. I have yet to figure a way to get your model into Maya version 4.5. Any chance you could send me a .DXF or/and an .FBX file?
