Subject: [gundam] What exactly r ball joints

Ball joints are like how most Gundam kits hips attach to the body, a ball on
the body and a socket in the hip. That's why they are called ball joints,
because these joints actually have a ball. Other types of joints can
reproduce the range of ball joints, it would just take more joints to do so.
So, a ball joint is used most often because I would guess, is less complex
then a series of joints. Did this help?
