I need to transfer/install several wires from one connection to another on a circuit board, and have had a tough time getting anything to work reliably except for key-framing spline points manually. I have tried using an IK tag in a spline, the IK Spline tag (briefly) and the IK tag on joints. The wires become very difficult to control and I have trouble controlling the angle of the wire end. I don’t deal much with rigging - am I not getting how to use IK properly, or perhaps there is a better approach than IK? The example file shows a relatively small wire movement, but there are much longer movements needed as well.
As part of the same project, I need to unplug and transfer a ribbon cable from one circuit board position to another. I have looked at manually animating a spline sweep, but what do you think?
Example files attached.
