I want to spin a washing machine drum that the player will go into

  1. What do you want to achieve? I want to spin a washing machine drum that the player will go into. I tried to use tweenservice, but the problem is that players the players remain stationary while the basket spins.

Then i tried to use “HingeConstrains” and it works, but there is a problem. I don’t know how to control them. What should i put in MotorMaxTorque? Because it is not moving or it stops at a pont if i put less than 500 milions! I serached online, and i saw that it depends from the mass of the part or something else, but i don’t understand.

So basically i want a system that:
1. allows you with scripts to chnage the direction of the rotation
2. allows you with script to change the power of the rotation (im simulating a washing machine programme)

(the one with the hinge is ok, i just want to understand what to put in motormaxtorque or in the other proprieties based on how much speed of rotation i want to give)

Btw this is the mass of the union (the washing machine drum) that i want to rotate

There’s property in any BasePart object called CustomPhycialProperties, you can reduce Mass by setting density to absurdly small amount like 0.1.

Ty for the answer
Alright, but how do i set the MotorMaxTorque and the other hinge’s proprieties? Based on what? How do i control it with scripts. I mean how do I adjust the actual rotation speed

local hinge = --your hinge
hinge.MotorMaxAcceleration = 35 --Or anything you want. You can limit from script to any number

alright, but what should i set to MotorMaxTorque? Because the rotation speed change if i put a highter motormaxtoruqe.

Play with different values, you test some number then check how it goes in the game, and if it doesn’t satisfy you you try another number.

local hinge = --your hinge
hinge.MotorMaxAcceleration = 35
hinge.MotorMaxTorque = 100
