A pair of Pliers for M4

Render of a 3d pair of pliers.

Updated 31DEC09 I'm embarrassed to say I forgot one of the files in the original upload. These should work now. Yea I know... rusty pliers? This isn't anything too special but hopefully you can find some use for them.

I made this as part of a discussion on the Daz forums. I was trying to figure out a way of making a figure act like a smart prop. I tried a number of different test items and this is one of those tests.

The goal is to get a figure, that uses ERC, to automatically load parented to another figure's hand yet still allow access to the ERC dials. These pliers work to a degree but you have to hunt for the ERC in Poser (More about this in the readme.) The concept works perfectly in Daz|Studio but does not in Carrara. If you find a better solution I would love to hear about it. You can add a message in the forum link above or send me an email.

For Daz Studio, Poser and Carrara

This item was tested in Daz|Studio 2 and 3, Carrara7 and Poser7 but it behaves a little differently in each application. Oh, and The material settings I used suck so you will probably want to adjust them.


You may use these however you like... private or commercial. No credit is needed or expected.
