Adam learns about the various materials and fabrication techniques that the builders at Animax Designs have developed to make the exterior shells of their dinosaur and creature animatronics. Experiments ranging from cast silicone to stretch fabrics allow for a balancing of weight and flexibility, and one technique calls for vacuum forming massive sheets of foam that is pressed with an impressive amount of detail. Let's watch this machine in action!
