This skeleton guy has kept me so busy the past couple months. The last few days have been comprised of me designing parts for a stand to hold him up and also redesigning parts on him that needed improving. The stand needed a way to attach to him so I had to redesign the ribcage. One of his arms broke because I designed the wall too thin where the nut tightens. I also designed a brand new articulated spine (I may have mentioned that already, I can’t remember). I have also been keeping a running list of materials and costs. And I have rigged up my model in the computer so that I can pose and animate him if need be for advertising purposes.
I just placed my last order for the remaining 3D printed parts and hardware. Theoretically when everything arrives I should be able to assemble him completely and mount him to his new stand (although I haven’t decided on a base, for now I will probably just use a piece of wood). It’s time for a breather. I don’t feel like working on muscles yet. My bank account and me need a break. I will update again in a week when I have him assembled and ready for display.
