How to Create Robotic Arms in Maya

Digital Creator School shows how to create robotic arms in Maya, based on Polyfjord’s Blender tutorial.

This new tutorial from Lucas Ridley of Digital Creator School shows how to re-create the robotic arms tutorial in Maya. You may remember Polyfjord’s wildly successful Blender tutorial showing how to create these types of arms using an Armature in Blender.

Ridley uses Maya’s MASH to distribute the shapes along a curve and creates a simple cluster-driven rig to control the robotic arms.
