The Base Rig forms the first stage of 3 Stage Asset Build as it relates to the rigging process. It's during this stage that one lays out the core components of the rig to have a strong, solid, and very reliable starting point to work from. The other, more complicated stages will take their cues from the Base Rig, and if that Base Rig is not stable, everything else can be broken easily. The Root node acts as the top node in the hierarchical chain for the rigs. The bumper is a simple element, and one needs at least three Point Helpers to create it. Each piston needs three Point Helpers positioned at the piston head, the rotating bar, and the pivot section in the middle. Working on creating the Point Helpers is a slow and tedious task, but it is a necessary evil that makes things a lot easier for the next rigging phase.
