Problem while doing BlenderChar's Arm Tutorial...

I have been following the arm rigging tutorial on BlenderChar’s website and have run into a snag…

All went well until I tried to add an IK Solver to the ThumbNull.R bone pointing to IK_thumb.R. It keeps blanking out like that bone doesn’t exist.

I have all the bones named correctly and all part of the same armature. Why won’t it let me setup the IK solver? Any takers?


Make sure that the Ob: you have is set to “Armature” then a new text field appears allowing you to put in the name of said armature.

I was trying to type the name of the armature directly in the Ob: window and it wouldn’t work.

Hope this helps!


I’m still trying to understand Armatures in Blender. It works perfectly now.
