Making moving props out of wire and solder and servos.
Animatronic Pokemon Props
I made some Pokemon. Well, I made some Pokemon move. The Pokemon themselves where crocheted by sam over at Sam & Rae Crafts. I made some bits of skeleton using steel wire and solder.
Bend wire into a loop the size of the body, making a frame.
Make a servo bracket out of wire and solder it to the frame.
Make a hinge by loosely winding wire around the frame. Constrain by soldering blobs of solder near the hinge.
Attach to servo horn with a section of steel cable.
