setReferences(*args)[source]

Overload 1: Set reference joints and vectors. This constraint maintains the equality theta2=theta1*ratio; theta1 is measured by joint1 with reference to some vector ref1 which must replace either the first or second DS of the current relation being defined. If ref1 and ref2 are null, then no reference is used. Typically ref1 and ref2 will be equal in order to implement gear ratios for example. joint1 must be between ref1 and ds1 specified in setBasePositions(), while joint2 must be between ref2 and ds2.

Typically ref1 and ref2 will be equal in order to implement gear ratios for example. joint1 must be between ref1 and ds1 specified in setBasePositions(), while joint2 must be between ref2 and ds2.
