Doing the action figure 3d printing method.
I’ve been making models for about 6 years now and I want to actually start animating.
Thing is I would have to paint on these models. And had hair clothing etc as their just base models is 3d pritning joints the best method for stop motion?
I'd like to get a better grasp on your question: when you say, "Is 3D Printing joints the best method for stop motion?" That sounds like you wonder if your armature should be 3d Printed?
If That's correct, then I guess it depends on how fast you can print the skeleton, and how strong they are. it seems like the design and printing of an armature is possible but it may really take time, especially if you need to do iterations and improvements on the skeleton.
Ready-made armatures are strong and you can order them and have them relatively quickly. It seems like the work has been done for you already. (?)
I've never done 3d printing but it seems cool. Laika's facial work on the Boxtrolls was what made me inspired to start with my production, but of course they have big budgets and the best people. Even with knowing Maya and z-brush, I decided to buy armatures to speed up the development.
I hope this helps.
i'm currently studying 3D printing and i practice models but fail to make a good one. Coming up in August i have my school project display in which i have to design and exhibit my work. I have sketched some too using back to school promo codes stroke pencils. Now the problem is i can not connect the dots. and that is the major problem behind it. Please help
When I see a link like "back to school promo codes" I get suspicious. We had a spammer here recently who cut and pasted bits of genuine questions from other forums, with fake links which I would never click on. This might be the same thing. If not spam, a bit more info would help.
