A10 Components

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.

Armature Ten Update

Hello A10-Ballerina supporters!

Ok so there is a lot to update you on but here’s a teaser to hold you over a little longer.

This image below shows an overview of what’s been going on design-wise with the project.

On  the far right are the early models/prototypes featured in the  campaign video

Then to the left are the two variants I’ve been designing through the aid of 3d scanning.  You’ll get to pick one or the other when I send the surveys out.

One of them my daughter and the other a professional model.  Both are 1/6 scale but the woman is meant to be short and petite for her age so that the figure is still only about 8-9 inches tall.

I’ll be talking about this and more, including what I’ve learned with injection molding and getting brown resin to work in the later update.

Production has begun for all the pieces that are injection molded (pictures to come on that as well).

But now need to finish designing the 3d printed components that will be made with the wood composite material and then begin production on those.

I’m still hoping to have everything completed by the end of August as originally promised.  Thank you all for your patience.

I’ve been collecting footage and images of the process and I’m still hoping to edit it all into a nice video for the next update.

Thanks again everyone 🙂
