Need Help with Roblox Script Using BodyGyro

Hello everyone,

I’m currently working on a Roblox project and I’m having trouble with a script that’s intended to use BodyGyro to rotate an object when the spacebar key is pressed. However, it’s not functioning as expected, and I could use some assistance in identifying and resolving the issue.

Here’s a brief description of the problem:

  • I’ve created a script that attaches a BodyGyro to an anchored object.
  • The script is designed to rotate the object by 45 degrees around the Y-axis when the spacebar key is pressed and stop when the spacebar key is released.
  • Unfortunately, the object isn’t rotating as intended, and I can’t figure out what’s causing the issue.

Here’s the script I’m currently using:

local object = script.Parent

local gyro ="BodyGyro")
gyro.D = 25
gyro.MaxTorque =, 400000, 400000)
gyro.Parent = object

local isRotating = false

local function RotateObject()
	isRotating = not isRotating
	gyro.CFrame = CFrame.Angles(0, math.rad(45), 0)

local function StopRotation()
	isRotating = false
	gyro.CFrame = object.CFrame

local userInputService = game:GetService("UserInputService")
local inputIsProcessing = false

userInputService.InputBegan:Connect(function(input, isProcessed)
	if not isProcessed and input.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.Space then
		inputIsProcessing = true

userInputService.InputEnded:Connect(function(input, isProcessed)
	if input.KeyCode == Enum.KeyCode.Space and inputIsProcessing then
		inputIsProcessing = false

I believe the BasePart can’t be anchored. If you want to keep it anchored try just tweening the CFrame

I tried without anchor, and didn’t work
