Mannequin on Bike

Hi Guys,

I'm Trying to simulate a mannequin riding a bike so far so good but have problems with the pedal rotation I need to make it act like a bearing any ideas?

This is something that should be animated using keyframes. I would suggest using a 3D package such as Maya or 3ds Max.

Agreed that this is more of a kinematics problem that can be solved with an animation package with thoughtful rigging. Even if you want to simulate it the rigid body solver in RealFlow is not sophisticated enough to solve all of the problems presented by a bicycle and the rider. Cheers!

Thats fair enough at least you too saved me loads of time trying to get things to work! :) - Will try an 30 day trial animation package to try it out! Thanks!
