Mechanical arm animating

June 18, 2013

During the animating section of my mechanical arm, I used set driven key to animate the arm easier then if I were to keyframe the each individual finger group. I set up different objects for different parts of the robot arm so I would know what controls what. The cubes control the fingers, the cylinder the thumb, the torus the blades, the sphere the rotation of the forearm, and finally the pyramid for the whole arm. I also created and animated a camera to make the animation a bit more interesting.

Hours of work= 4 hours 30 minutes
