Thanks so much for the clear explanation. I had been struggling with a simple vector (trying to extrude it) and filling the holes, but this is a much better and more well thought out plan! Thanks, again!

Iron Man 3: The Trixters Behind Tony Stark's Shiny New Armor

Seventy artists from Trixter worked an entire year to create a formidable 208 VFX shots for Marvel's Iron Man 3. Each new episode in the Iron Man saga details a slick new technology created by the ingenious Tony Stark, and the new installment does not disappoint! Combining the hard surface geometry of the Iron Man suit auto-assembly with the flexibility of the human body was one of the challenges that Trixter brought from previs to believable screen reality.
