Gear constraint usage

Post by SynapticBytes »

Hi All,

I'm trying to implement gear constraints and see the default ratio is 1.0f. However,when I set that ration, it appears to lock the gears in place. Is that as intended?

I can use 0.99 and get rotation, although it takes a lot of torque to move. I'd have thought that using 1 would be desirable to get 1:1 rotation. The constraint demo only uses about 0.5 ratio and paart from some complicated math to find axis 2, doesn't do much else.

Also, are motors and limits enabled for gears? They don't come up in the doxygen docs.
