How to model legs of spider?


I want to model an animated spider.

When I render a singe frame, it just shows the body but no legs.

How can I model the thinnest line as legs?

Also, how can I make it animate (moving and scaling body and legs) ?



It looks like your legs are just curves, so they are not going to render unless you give them thickness. Check thinnest line thread for how to do that.

Spiders are air-breathing chelicerate arthropods that have eight legs, and chelicerae modified into fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other groups of organisms.


Spiders occur in a large range of sizes. The smallest, Patu digua from Borneo, are less than 0.37 mm in body length. The largest and heaviest spiders occur among tarantulas, which can have body lengths up to 90 mm (about 3.5 inches) and leg spans up to 250 mm (about 10 inches).
