I'm trying to set up a phone cord which stays attached at each end (the handset and the base). I want to be able to animate the handset and have the cord dynamically move around the way it should, but still remain attached to the base. I tried setting up a polychain and using metalink but I'm having trouble getting the ends to stay attached to their respective objects. Any thoughts?

Can you just rig it with bones and parent it properly? I've never done that polychain/metalink thing.

Yeah, I've done that in the past, but I'd like to figure out the new 'dynamics' way of setting it up. I'll probably end up doing it with bones just so I can control it better, rather than it being left up to a simulation. Have you used the new dynamics stuff yet?
