I have to start a mechanical animation in the next few weeks. One component involves a chain link belt (similar to a chain saw, but without the teeth!) I've tried this in the past and didn't have much luck. It's been a while and I'm wondering if anyone has any advice. Thanks in advance- Jon

You could use a morph to create the animation. Similar to tank treads going around.

This might help
