Detailed description:

A perfect addition to any Anibild kit or scratch builder, The Animation Toolkit CNC (Computer Numerical Control) ball joints are our most precision machined parts offering accuracy within 0.001mm. We have custom designed and built these joints to last over the strenuous rigours of armature performance.

Manufacturing our joints out of stainless steel means that they are strong. The use of stainless steel in joints reduces bend resulting in plates to  ‘banana’ out of shape and loose tension on balls. Stainless steel is very unreactive which also mean they will last a lot longer against corrosion in the foam baking process.   

The ergonomic rounded design helps reduce tears and rips in armature skins. They help shape the bone structure of your armatures and can accentuate features such as knees, shoulders and elbows should you need it.

The deep ball cup feature allows for smooth, precision movements when animating. This also lengthens the life of the ball instead of cutting into them.
