probably not, but I suggest using hierarchy and parent the parts of the lamp to the joints instead of binding to the skeleton because it would be messy with the skin weights. Hope to see it soon! Careful with copyright infringement.

is there anywhere i could get information on the hierarchy?

the maya model just has to look like the pixar one, not exactly copy it

i woud like to know hwo to piece them together in this way (so they act like an actual lamp)

thanks
