I'm excited to share that we just published a new free Blender rigging tutorial from our talented instructor Louis du Mont, creator of our Robotic Planet course.
For this tutorial, you'll learn how to effectively rig a very funny robot in Blender, which we named "JokeBot9000".
More specifically, you'll learn how to:
- Use armatures (bones) for hard-surface objects
- Automate animation with drivers and custom properties
- Create a waveform display for the robot's mouth
BTW. this tutorial can be a great help for our current running Robotic Wildlife 3D Animation Challenge.
For this, we challenge you to create a 3D robotic animal, that lives in a natural environment. And since this is an animation challenge, you also have to rig and animate your robots.
So hopefully this video comes in handy!
