Default 4woods * Neck bolt adapter

Hi dear 4woods owners,

Here's a follow-up of a special modification job on Mia's A.I.NEO im-body manufactured March 2015.


The history behind this project

Since my first RealDoll2 was delivered November 2014 I really missed the neck bolt feature on my 4woods doll. This option not only helps to pose the doll in a standing pose but also while the dressing/undressing job.


The knee joints on the A.I.NEO im-body are adjusted relatively tight so I achieved to make this awesome shot in August 2015:



Even when nothing happened on the foot soles due to the high amount of compression I don't recommend you to try this standalone pose! Too risky!

I want this neck bolt feature...NOW!


How to make the impossible....just possible

On January 2016 I dared to place a straight 20 cm (~8") long and deep cut in the middle of Mia's back to start the skeleton modification.



The picture on the left reveals on what awaits me. On the right a graphical illustration of the modification.

Soon after I accessed the skeleton parts I started to disassemble the lower neck hinge connection and measured the round aluminum neck rod diameter on which I wanted to add a custom-made extension adapter.


A simple pencil drawing helped while creating the final design:



An hour later and the 3D view was ready and the drawing was printed to manufacture the piece...



...and at the following day the extension unit was a finished additional skeleton part, just ready to fit in place.




Installation and finishing touch

The extension adapter is already installed on the aluminum rod and fixed by the M6 mount screw. The lower neck hinge connection joint just needs being installed and adjusted.
Deep inside the 3/8" UNC neck bolt thread the M6 grub screw is noticeable:



It's very hard to work under this thick and sturdy silicone layer. Damn, the fingers starts to hurts!

The extension unit is glued onto the silicone skin to keep in place, the long cut will be closed on a later state.



The provided 4woods 3-part repair kit was used for the cosmetic closure of the cut.





A 4woods doll with 3/8" UNC neck bolt option. I want it, I get it, I use it!
