Rigged Folding Step Ladder

by winthrop brookhouse in Models

How is this model constructed

I have constructed the model to work like a real handmade step ladder. All wood pieces and modeled as they would have been woodworked, so using vertex groups all parts can be selected then separated to obtain individual parts that can then be used to deconstruct the model for scene of a woodworking nature. Only the bolts are not complete to save render time where parts of the bolts are hidden iinside of the wood.
