A classic Mech Rigging Tutorial

Escalight's tutorial on rigging a gundam model

A Gundam model rigged with bones

I always liked this tutorial from Escalight, as it’s very easy to follow yet it delivers. The author decided to use bones instead of a joint hierarchy, and this is fine. I find using bones makes things easier for mechanical models as well, because sometimes you need soft mechanics, such as tubes and rubber joints, and this avoids any confusion when rigging multiple sections.

The Gundam model is not the kind of subject I like, but then I’m partial to Votoms. Maybe a little too partial.
