Adam Savage Meets a Life-Size Animatronic T-Rex!

Adam steps into the massive workshop of Animax Designs, a character design and fabrication company that he's been working with for his velociraptor costume. One of Animax's specialties is the build of fully animatronic dinosaurs, and Adam gets up close with their massive Tyrannosaurus Rex mech that's just about to be animated for the first time.

    Adam, for wire to bend frequently it has to be stranded. The finer the strands the more it can bend (welder cable). Copper work hardens when bent. Automotive and marine grade cabling must be stranded for this reason because of vibrations.

      @hyperfisk Dino's are definitely fun to work on and yes the limiting you have to build into these mechs is a bit crazy sometimes. Idk if you know how delta motions work with actuators but those are "fun" to work with. Yikes. It's incredibly fun. Imagine animating your traditional way with a life size skinned dino in front of you and being able to update the motions on the fly. And not just some two motion mech, one with over twenty and giving it life. It's incredible. Glad to hear you got to work on some in some fashion.

      @Cody Ashworth I can imagine one of the more difficult parts must be all the constraints the rigging gives you. But it looks like so much fun too. Was lucky enough to animate some 3D dinosaurs for a documentary some years ago. Honestly, dinosaurs make the job even more fun any day.

      Dewd absolutely! Rigging a mech like this has it's challenges at times since we build it to meet the functions of the actuators in the mech. Animating with actuator based limits has it's challenges but taking those limits and making them look as life like as you can is the goal. If you have any questions I can bombard you with info. Educating in this field is important for other animators out there to broaden their horizons and to know you don't have to shoot for the mainstream view on what a job in our industry looks like. Thanks for the comment! Love the interest.

      Each character is totally unique! Great question. The main difference is we aren't making a million of these things and you can't just test drive it until you like it. We build it the way we know we will like it.
