Fixing threaded wire into the puppets head
|close up on threaded wire|
After getting things together, a small job which ended up time consuming because taking out the original wire which was inside the puppets head and changing it to a threaded wire to make more compatible to the armature which is using a ball and socked armature.
|workshop area for the day|
|If you can see the picture you'll see I finally got the job done.|
Organisation is important.
Finding myself looking for armature pieces and eyes on the floor after dropping them became annoying and time consuming,the money I spend on the box saves time in the long run.
Re-thinking set approach & giving tests a place to animate.
(also less home made more professional)
Floor plan & Rigging.
|First picked up some Mdf and drew out spacing for vertical and horizontal.|
|Realising lines were not matching up added correct measurements with and X.|
|After measurements aligned correctly|
|Ongoing thinking about how the set will be placed together or to be able to pull apart.|
To be able get get exact measurements correct and not waste time I used a machine called CNC which with the correct measurements given will take commands from software such as illustrator,Corral and Cad.
|Screen grabs of the illustration document 5mm each hole.|
|Finished and ready to sent to cad then the Cnc machine.|
With the help of splirgion(spelt as said) a workshop technician helped so much in letting me use the CNC machine, the reason for the holes? For the rigging as you'll of noticed I will be using tie downs which consists of connecting an armature with a hole in your set using a nut and bolt.
|Holes not in place? CNC took measurements from bottom of Mdf,mine are from the drawn out box.|
|From the things to get me to this stage I will be using this set as the before set to test armatures mainly.|
|Tie down fits perfectly leaving enough room to be able to have not movements in the set when changing position.|
