Woah!! This is so cool to see. Customer used A9 for a stop-motion homework assignment and just surprised me with this this morning 🙂 Check it out:
Here’s a photo update showing what some of the Armature10 pieces are looking like. The idea with this library of products is that all of our A9 customers will be able to selectively augment their armature with realistic surface geometry all of which was derived through our in-house 3D scanning capabilities.
All of these pieces will be available individually as well as in themed sets. These in particular are for building two female age groups we are calling Ballerinas.
NOTE: That you sacrifice articulation and range of motion when using an A10 product. For instance, notice how the entire forearm (including hands) are all one connected sculptural piece. So there’s no finger, or wrist movement. The idea with A10 is to provide artists with realistic (3d scanned) sculptural reference of the human figure, but allow you do use it selectively so that you can decide where you want to keep articulation and where you’re willing to sacrifice it. But to have sufficient range of motion so that you could purchase an entire A10 doll and still have great posable reference.
Announcing our new and improved STAGE tile! Now it’s really easy to create large performance stages for your A9 products.

I’m so THRILLED to announce that Rider & Ranger have taken an evolutionary step forward in 2018. Ranger (as of now) has an additional five points of articulation in the hand with a thumb that can adduct and abduct and the other fingers have three joints each instead of two. Rider’s hands continue to have the same articulation as before but are created at twice the resolution rendering a much smoother and more solid/less fragile result. I put together this image to properly identify the major differences and advantages of each:
(all orders placed after 2/24/18 feature these improvements)
