I asked How are Animated Objects created? and it was suggested that it was a duplicate of What are the rules for making constructs other than golems?. I can see that they are indeed very similar but I was not happy with the answer on the original question so believe it is right to ask a separate question.
So far the answer I have received on my question does add a little information that wasn't in the original question's answers.
In a case like this is it right to ask a duplicate question?
