Product Notes

Don't know what to call this other than a 'Spring Thing'. It's a mad idea that came to me and may be useful if you have a similar mad idea. It's a prop consisting of two boards with a spring between. I added three quick and dirty morphs (and I do mean quick & dirty) to compress the spring and bend it relative to the bottom board. The morphs should probably be restricted to 400% or less. For a possible use see my 'Springing Forward' image.

If you need to fit it to someone's feet, the easiest way to do it will be to rotate the 'Spring Thing' by 180 degrees about the Z axis, put the character with legs and feet straight down, then translate the 'Spring Thing' to the sole of the characters foot/shoe and then parent the prop to the foot. Now you can pose the person. It's much easier than posing the figure and then trying to fit the 'Spring Thing'to the foot.

From left to right, default position, compressed 100%, rotated about X 100%, rotated about Z 100%.

Normally I think of an idea for a prop as soon as I see it. But this time, I'm stumped. Hence, I want it! Besides, I have plenty of time to think of something, since I'm still waiting for a GPU to come available for my only rendering machine. Everything is perfect! Thank you!

I am glad you all have an idea of what to do with these things. I had a funny 5 minutes, and the idea for the 'Springing Forward' image came to me. I simply had to model these really dotty items, as no-one is likely to have done it before.

Thanks! I had already thought of exactly what you described about parenting to the feet for an image lol :)
