Using 2 slider joints to move on a plane

Hey there,

I'm working on a project where I need to use a portalcrane where the mounted object is moved by grabbing it with the vizconnect grabber and the parts of the crane should move too. I want to use the built-in physics engine, so i tried to use multiple joints to connect the crane parts, but I didn't figure out yet, how I could use 2 slider joints to get the crane moving in the room.
Is there a way to do this? This is an example code I use for testing purposes:
# -----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Options

CYCLES_PER_SEC = 0.05  # Frames
viz.setMultiSample(4)  # Multisampling
viz.setOption('viz.max_frame_rate', 60)  # Avoid flickering
viz.vsync(viz.OFF)  # V-Sync
viz.collision(viz.ON)  # Viewport Collision
viz.phys.enable()  # Physics Simulation
viz.setOption('viz.model.cache', viz.CACHE_CLONE)
vizconnect.go(r'../vizconnect_files/') # Standard Vizconnect Keyboard Setting

# -----------------------------------------------------------------------
# Loading of Objects
grabber = vizconnect.getRawTool('grabber')
position = [5.0, 0, 0]
room = viz.add('lab.osgb')  # Room is loaded
room.collideMesh()  # Room gets Collision

box = vizshape.addBox(size=[12.8, 0.2, 0.2], pos=[0, 5.5, position[2]])
box_joint = viz.phys.addSliderJoint(box, None, pos=[0, 5.5, position[2]], axis0=(0, 0, 1))
box_joint.setAxisLimit(0, -6, 6)  # Limit sliding distance
box_joint.setAxisBounce(0, 0)  # Change end bounce properties

rope = vizshape.addBox(size=[0.075, 3, 0.075], pos=[position[0], 3.9, position[2]])
rope_joint = viz.phys.addSliderJoint(rope, None, pos=[position[0], 3.9, position[2]], axis0=(1, 0, 0))
rope_joint.setAxisLimit(0, -12.8 / 2 - position[0],12.8 / 2 - position[0]) # Limit sliding distance
rope_joint.setAxisBounce(0, 0)  # Change end bounce properties

# rope_box_joint = viz.phys.addFixedJoint(box, rope)

I'll check with a developer but I'm not sure if this is possible using the physics engine. It may require IK code that moves the joints based on the object's position.

Is there some way you can show how you expect the objects to move together, maybe a diagram or picture.
