What our customers are saying


At A Glance: 3D Rigging

Just as the human skeleton supports and protects the body’s intricate formation of tendons, organs, muscles, and other vital pieces, a 3D model depends upon rigging in order to function. Whether you’re designing a character for the next Pixar film, looking to build an accurate and lifelike scientific model, or anything in between, a talented 3D rigging professional or designer will be an essential part of your team. 3D animation is truly the way of the future. Just as “talkies” revolutionized the film industry, 3D is poised to drastically alter numerous industries, from movies to medicine and education to retail sales. A rig can range from simple, sleek, and elegant to incredibly complex. A basic setup intended for simple posing may be built within an afternoon, though a fully articulated rig, such as those used in the making of high-quality animated films, may take several weeks. The 3D animator designs the 3D object model, but before it can be turned over to animators, a skilled 3D rigging designer must work his or her magic to ensure the model is bound properly to a system of joints and control handles, allowing animators to pose the model as needed. These 3D rigging professionals work closely with animators to ensure all technical issues are resolved.

On Upwork, you’ll have access to profiles of numerous 3D rigging professionals and designers who are available for hire at competitive rates. These expert freelancers are highly articulate in the language of animation, and will work with you and fellow animation personnel to make sure your 3D model is set for success.
