This in the course is a part i could not follow along Since my rod for the lamp is one piece i had to use another technique to apply the armature to my model. I hope i can follow along.
I used the “Armature Deform Parent” feature with Envelope Weights to be able to create this one continues tube without having it break when rotating one bone.
Look at the bones! its going to be a lot of work to animate i am afraid
