How to Make Animatronic Model (Ref. 12m Animatronic T-rex)
Step 1: Diagram – Production drawing for visualizing the inner structure
Step 2: Steel Frame – Dinosaur skeleton structure, motors control movements
Using steel to make the internal support, steel frame welding to form the accurate skeleton shape, plus machinery and transmission, after mechanical structure frame completes, then anti-rust treatment, and testing the movements to ensure the mechanical frameworks well.
Step 3: Shaping – Dinosaur come into shape
Sculpting and creating the masterpiece skin texture and muscle part on different on the high-density sponge, the outline of the ceature is created scientifically based on the data of paleontological knowledge.
Step 4: Texture – Varied texture & Pattern for different dinosaurs
Step 5: Skin – Putting on a raincoat
Coat and scrape the silicone on the dino skin, nylon (silk stocking) could increase the strength of the dinosaur skin, also keep the texture is shown. Finally, brush 3-4 layers of silicone on the dinosaurs, it will like a raincoat, so all of our animatronic models can stay outdoor.
Step 6: Painting – Bring dinosaurs to life
Color the animatronic dinosaur per design pattern, and bring the dinosaur to life!
