A9 – A10 what’s the deal?

Hey so this question keeps coming up.  What is A9? Is A10 replacing A9?

 

Ok the answer is no. Absolutely no. A9 and A10 are different (but sister) product lines.

A9 (or Armature Nine) is what you can currently get on armaturenine.com  which is a collection of customizable skeletal art manikins made of snap-fitted interchangeable parts.

A10 (or Armature Ten) is going to be what will be available on armatureten.com  which will be a collection of 3D scanned dolls featuring a variety of body types in male and female forms.

 

Here’s a table to explain the differences

Armature TEN Armature NINE
Product Focus 3-Dimensional form Skeletal locomotion
Articulation Basic Full range
Customizable Yes Yes
Join design Both use the same joint design

 

A10 will probably be available by the end of the year so it’s still something that’s under development.  My last update shows a screenshot featuring the first two body types (10 year old girl and a 21 year old very petite woman).

 

I’ve been so busy working I haven’t had time to post updates recently so I apologize for that. Sales continue to roll in and it’s just me here printing and building armatures constantly.  I’ve also been training for a dance competition coming up on Friday. So if anybody wants to see me ballroom dancing I’ll be at the Seattle Star ball competing in the pro/amateur category on Friday.  I’m the amaterur, of course 🙂

 

Unveiling new Rider

Really thrilled to unveil what will soon become the future of A9. Introducing the 2017.7 version of Rider. I expect this to be available before the end of the month and for our entire website to change once again.

The hands couldn’t get smaller than this because of the space needed to fit the magnet.  I hope people will be forgiving of the slightly oversized hands.  If not, I may look into a more proportional hand but without a magnet.  Feel free to post your thoughts via comment.
