The brief of the project has slightly changed...instead of just rigging the beam engine manually, I am trying to use a modular approach to the rigging with scripting to reuse certain parts.

The first part that is being rigged using Mel Scripting, is the part of the beam engine which drives a belt around two wheels. This could be reused for, i.e. tank tracks, bicycle chains etc.

This is still a work in progress but here is a quick update.
