Research & Context

Since I needed to figure out how to create a poseable figurine and I certainly would not be able to find a base model for Sinosaurus, I focused on trying to understand how joints work. I spent a lot of time looking up various joints, how to model them, and what features might be necessary to assemble them. At first, I considered many variants of ball joints, looking into how to knurl them, and how to shape the socket to have enough flexibility for assembly (and perhaps restrict the motion from every direction). Realizing that I really only wanted motion around one axis, I changed to considering hinge/pin joints, which would probably be simpler to print and design.

The actual design of Sinosaurus was based on my previous creations and thus didn't require additional research.
