Using Jiggle Bones
By Gay Scout
Some items have jiggle bones that don't show up when you load them. This is a quick guide to tell you how to activate them.
The process
Note: For the purposes of this guide I’m assuming you know how to attach items to models.

Some of the item models used in Team Fortress 2 use a type of bone called a jiggle bone. These bones don’t tend to show up automatically when you load up the models in SFM, but can be activated easily.

Step One: Load the model you want and attach it to your character.


Step Two: In the Animation Set Editor right click on the model, go to “Utilities”, then select “Bake Procedural Bones”


Step Three: Notice that an additional group has been added in the editor as a result of the baking. These are the hidden jiggle bones that you couldn't work with before.


Step Four: Manipulate the bones however you like!

If you want to enable jigglebones again, you go to utilities, and "bake procedural bones" was replaced with "enable procedural bones".
