08 Joint Design Nº 16

This is probably the simplest and most common shoulder joint. This is the shoulder joint design that I am going to use. The green line represents the socket. Click on any image to enlarge it.

This type of design has a floating cup that rests in a socket in the torso, and also has a socket in it for the arm ball. This type of joint allows a larger range of motion. This type of shoulder joint is discussed in Martha Armstrong-Hand's book, Learning To Be A Doll Artist.

This type of shoulder joint has the balls as part of the torso. Those balls sit in sockets in the top of the upper arm.

This illustration shows the shoulder joint design in diagram #2 above.
