Toughening up the hinge

Postby JoeWright » Wed Mar 04, 2009 11:34 am

Is there any way of making the custom hinge joint stiffer? When applying large torque the body tends to stay a bit past the min/max angle. The larger the torque, the more pronounced this is.

OK, so you could say - use less torque but I'm finding I need fairly large torques for what I'm trying to move when acting against gravity. When the same magnitude of torque is applied in a direction that works more with the gravity, the hinge overshoots and stays like that until the torque is released.

Thanks, Joe
