help, my tentacle's shearing
it's my first post here and I'm happy to have found this place! After watching the lesson on Tentacle Mechanisms I'm building my own. I'm quite happy with it and still there are things I want to improve:
a) the bending happens mostly in the lower part of each stage. Are there any techniques on how to distribute the bending more evenly?
b) After moving it I can't get it back to the original/straight position. The tentacle seems to shear, like a parallelogram. Is this normal and are there ways to improve this fact?
Maybe you can take a brief look at my video to see what I mean:
Thank you and best regards,
