I'm trying to create a limit strap for an assembly. The assembly moves freely along a set of linked constraints, and I am trying to create a flexible strap that will distort when compressed and straighten when extended, and also limit the travel of the assembly.
The strap is constrained by two pins, one on a fixed part of the assembly, the other on the moving part. They are parallel and can be predictably calculated for distance.
I started by creating a "skeleton" drawing by constraining four elements that add up to the correct distance, then building a spline using the constrained endpoints for reference. I can't seem to make that relate to the assembly though.
I am a self-taught newbie at this, so I'm starting to wade into deep water here. I understand that "Flexible" doesn't mean what I thought it did too... which is a challenge.
