Anibild® THREE is a precision-engineered armature to deliver maximum effect required by advanced and expert animators. The kit contains stainless steel joints with hardened stainless steel balls and socket head screws to make a humanoid armature. The joints are compact, strong and robust lending themselves to lengthy television production and feature film work. Anibild® THREE also contains multiple rigging points for your characters, which is fully integrated with the Anibild® Professional Rig system to support and execute technical and dynamic animation moves with your puppet.
Anibild®, although technical in it’s specification, is incredibly easy to assemble. All balls and bars are M3 threaded and can be secured into the balls using a strong thread-lock (not included).
