Summary

In these nonorganic rigging exercises, you explored some important aspects of rigging a prop with controls that an animator would need, keeping it as simple as possible while maintaining some flexibility. Certainly this is not the ultimate rigging you could do for this fire truck, so experiment with different control setups using the constraints and manipulators covered in this chapter.
