Description

Our Standard Armature kit comes complete with everything you need to make your own armature. It is easily assembled and has been designed to meet most character designs. As well as double jointed ball and socket joints, the armature features fixed joints, which have just one pivot point allowing for natural human movement. Similarly the armature also includes toe joints which will enable you to produce more natural walk cycles compared to the flat footed walk cycles associated with other armatures. The kit also includes a standard threaded tie-down system and is also fully compatible with the magnetic systems that we offer.

The Standard Armature is made almost entirely from hard wearing stainless steel. It includes threaded plates which offer a more compact joint than previous generations of our Standard Armatures. It also features hard wearing wire hands which come complete with protective heat shrink tubing. The hands can be easily replaced allowing for hassle free maintenance.
