Unreal Engine 4 Robot Arm - how to?


Really new to unreal engine 4.
I’m trying to build a very basic robot arm - 6DOF. Something like this ROV manipulator arm in UE4 - YouTube, but that’s a very advanced example.

I think (may be wrong), the phases are:

  • Create arm from Skeletal control
  • Introduce Inverse kinematics

No idea about both. Didn’t find any good tutorial about both.

I’d appreciate your thoughts on the way I think this should be approached, and links to good basic-level tutorials on these.
