How do I rotate a part while also rotating the parts inside of it?

How do I rotate a part while also rotating the parts inside of it? I can do this by rotating it with the roblox rotate tool, but I cannot do it with a script. I’ve tried many times to try and solve it but it has been to no avail.

Make all the other parts welded to the part that is rotating. Make it so they are unanchored. If you continue have problems, could you please give me a script to look at? That would be really helpful.

I tried this, the parts are welded together with WeldConstraints and I am doing “part.Orientation = Vector3.New(X,X,X)” It only moves the single part though and not the part inside of it.

Could you send a video of what is happening?

Did you check this as well? :face_with_monocle:

You can use a regular weld, or motor6D. After that you can adjust the C0 so that it rotates by weld.


weld.C0 = weld.C0 * CFrame.Angles(0,1,0)

Yes they are also unanchored I don’t think a video would help. Am I supposed to be using Vector3 for changing orientations?

Ok, I will try that. I will tell you if it works.

It still didn’t work, it rotates correctly with Roblox rotate but a script just rotates the single part.

It doesn’t even move at all now.

Weld everything inside the part to it, that way when you rotate the part everything else follows.

local function WeldDescendants(part)--Function that welds all part's descendants to it
	for i, v in pairs(part:GetDescendants()) do --Loop through descendants
		if v:IsA("BasePart") then
			v.Anchored = false
			local weld ="WeldConstraint")
			weld.Part0 = v
			weld.Part1 = part
			weld.Parent = v
part.CFrame = part.CFrame * CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(90), 0) --Rotate part 90 degress onthe Y axis

That’s because they are only affected by CFrames. So, you need to use CFrame to rotate the part in order for it to work.
