Beam axle
« on: December 14, 2016, 08:55:03 AM »
Any chance you can specify what linkage is what on the beam suspension setup?

axle1
{
   type = beam
   shock0_bodylink = -0.359, 0.649, -1.092
   shock0_axlelink = -0.428, 0.19, -1.092
   shock0_minlength = 0.345
   shock1_bodylink = 0.359, 0.649, -1.092
   shock1_axlelink = 0.457, 0.19, -1.092
   shock1_minlength = 0.345
   num_linkages = 4
   linkage0_bodylink = 0.0, 0.173, -0.063
   linkage0_axlelink = 0.0, 0.233, -0.829
   linkage1_bodylink = 0.0, 0.173, -0.063
   linkage1_axlelink = 0.1, 0.095, -0.827
   linkage2_bodylink = 0.0, 0.173, -0.063
   linkage2_axlelink = -0.1, 0.095, -0.827
   linkage3_bodylink = -0.3, 0.299, -0.94
   linkage3_axlelink = 0.49, 0.249, -0.94
   hub0_link = -0.705, 0.249, -1.016
   hub1_link = 0.714, 0.249, -1.016
}

YEAH BOIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII

Linkages 0-2 are the longitudinal ones that go from the front end, the torque tube pivot, to the final drive casing. Linkage 3 is effectively a panhard bar, to control the lateral movement on the rear end. The values are simply positions of the pivots on the x,y and z axes, relative to the centre of the model.
