I neede help with a 3D Max Rigged Hand
show user profile  Jim530
I am a CAD guy and have no knowledge of 3D rendering. I discovered this when thinking I have a good knowledge bass in computers and I am a pretty good CAD designer I can pick this rendering thing up in a few days.... Boy was I wrong so my hat is off to all you guys and gals who have the right stuff. So here is my predicament, I am trying to develop this Golf aid for a friend and went out and bought a Rigged Hand from one of the many sites only to find out of course all I can manage to do is make the fingers go up and down and I can only do that by accident. I am looking for someone who can help me to put this hand in the appropriate position I need to get the right fit for my device. If anyone out there is willing to help I will be in your debt.

Check this video. Nothing too tricky here. One hotkey that might come in handy is F3, it'll show you the wires and make the hand see-through.

Well first I suck at 3DS, the video makes it look soooo simple then I throw my brain at it and the hand explodes or worse. I am trying to position it as if it is holding a golf club. the difficult part of this is it has to be real not almost or something like that the hand has to be positioned correctly be cause I am producing fitted components from it once I get it done. I am going to fool with it some more unless I find a kindly soul to help me out. I may be getting too old for new tricks!

If you upload the .max scene file to divshare or such and post a link here, I can have a go at it.
I warn you though that I use Max 2009, so if you are using a newer version I won't be able to open it or help you.

Do you have a 'golf club handle' in the scene so that I would have a circumference size to wrap the hand around?
