Two Axis Joint,

Tue, 27 Sep 2011

In the words of '68 The Outsider's song 'Bend me, shape me, anyway you want me" The perfect lyric for the poseable paper character. So it is that I'm experimenting with a joint to join hips and body together. Such a joint needs to be able to bend side to side and back to front and perhaps even allow the body to rotate. That's two, perhaps three axis of rotation.   


I constructed this centre block using the same rotary joints as featured in the stick-man model. By adding the joints to two faces I add an extra axis of rotation. Left/right and front/back


…now I just need to add rotation.

    Argh! You beat me to it! Beautiful! You've fully decoded the mysteries of pose tech now. I don't know if it can be made more simple than this 🙂

      Interesting. Who is this

      Interesting. Who is this Sergenth investigating the mysteries of pose tech? At times like this, Google is your friend and today is no exception. It turns out that he has a website and all sort of awesome downloads at Paper Poseables

      Thanks Sergenth
