Hello fellow sackpeople!! I just registered here at LBPC, I've been looking for a forward-thinking mature community to join and it seems I've found it!

So, I'm working on my first big creation, and I've run into an issue. I am trying to make a mad scientist in a wheelchair. I already made the actual scientist (turned out awesome). I'm trying to make his wheelchair and I can't figure out how. I have tried making it out of metal material and adding a wheel (tricycle wheel) with a mechanical bolt. Once everything is attached, It wont move. Any tips? Thanks in advance for all of the help!! :hero:

I've found that using metal in moving creations causes more problems then necessary. I suggest trying wood as it is still heavy, but not as heavy as metal. That should be the first thing you try, might fix you problem right there and then.

If not, I'm sure others have some good advice for you too. :)

Also, make sure the strength is all the way up - that way it can still move with heavy objects on it.

Thanks for all of the help, guys. I ended up not using a wheelchair and just going with handcrafted legs and feet. I have another question about an item, but I think it deserves a new thread. Thanks again!!
