    Learn methods and best practices for setting up and rigging mechanical rigs of all types. Rigging systems are not just for characters but also for handling complex systems with mechanical parts. Multi-jointed systems and systems that need to operate within constrained parameters are explored along with many of the typical problems that are faced when dealing with mechanical setups.

    Key Learnings

    • Set up and rig complex mechanical rigs
    • Use MAXScript to track velocities and acceleration of objects in 3ds Max® software
    • Prepare and identify objects for rigging
    • Problem-solve technical issues associated with rigging
