Maya for 3D Printing - Rapid Prototyping
In this course we're going to look at something a little different, creating technically accurate 3D printed parts.

I find this a bit tricky to critique without being able to see more angles. My instant thought is that it's not quite right. I can't put my finger on it from this short video. But, I would suggest, if you haven't already tried it, is to film yourself acting the part out, and I do mean acting it out, not just taking the lid off a jar. Make sure you know the type of performance you want to animate, act it out on video and use that as a reference to create you animation. Do it several times from different angles, edit them all together and really get a feel for it.

Hi
Appriciate the feedback. Yeah i do act out the shot and use it for reference.
This is for an exercise where i have to do an action in 2-3 seconds, thats why its so short.

here is an update. I added followthrough and some anticipation. Just need to work a bit on my arcs.
