Armature Nine, An Evolving Product
Posted by Paul Siegel on
So as many of you know, A9 is an evolving product and has gone through many changes over the course of the last few years. But it's only every so often, that something meriting a mention happens. Since the product began, joints like the wrist have had an unlock position (turn sideways, then remove or insert). But we've been gradually getting rid of this for all of our joints and designing and building the pieces to be shaped and strong enough to sustain straight on snap fitted pressures.
This ensures that the fitting is consistent regardless of the angle or rotation. This has been especially problematic in the wrist. For a long time we didn't think this would be possible through 3D printing, but by working on Power Posers and Tiny Towns we got better at it (3d printing) and have been gradually taking what we've learned and applied that knowledge to improve the A9 series of products.
It was November of 2012 when we took our first orders for A9 and as I look back on this older version, holding them next to each other, I feel part embarrassment but also part inspired. Because if this is how far we've come in just a few years, just imagine where we'll be a few years from now.
