As a response to http://mediawiki.blender.org/index.php/BSoD/Introduction_to_Rigging
I am developing a script to automatically build the rigs described therein.
It can be found at http://itu.dk/people/rusmus/blender/BSoD_rigs.py
So far it builds the IK-controlled arm rig and the chicken leg rig.
Some care has been taken to build the infrastructure, so that it is easily extended to new rig options. I plan to finish all the rigs in the tutorial as the tutorial itself gets done.
I did not do the foot rig yet, as I did not quite understand it. There seems to be some inconsistent naming in the description.
I did not do the spine rigs either, and would like input on how to best incorporate spine rigs into the setup.
I would also like feedback on how well it works for characters not in the default position.
Actually, any crits, comments and suggestions are welcome
