Some questions about 3D printing armor
« on: Nov 22, 2018, 08:29 AM »
Hello everyone
I am using 3D printing to build my first Mandala armor. Some parts of the picture are not polished and painted, and I will follow up. The bulge of the carapace is prepared for the convenience of mounting the back rocket pack, and there will be a production plan in the future. I want to use my own Mandala color scheme, I don't know if this will affect the review. Also ask you whether such 3D printing armor meets the audit requirements?





In addition, I have some doubts about the costumes. I am considering using military training suits or similar military marine costumes, and then installing the nails on the clothes with Velcro. Boots are also prepared to use outdoor military boots. I don't know if this type of clothing meets the audit requirements. Please help us to look at it first.




2018/12/21 UPDATE
Some simple pre-loading photos, clothes need to be adjusted and modified, the whole should be okay? Please give some advice, thank you




It took a lot of time to print out the rocket backpack, the model is too big to be divided, there are some parts of the details can not be restored, the printing cost of SLA is too high t_t



Next is the polished hell...

As long as there are no visible 3d printing lines on the final product, and the armor fits against you properly, 3d printed armor is fine.

For the boots, you will need to cover the area where there are laces. The suits look acceptable. If there are hip pockets, they will need to be sewn shut.

Thank you very much for your reply! Thank you!
I didn't reply in the first time due to the time difference, sorry. Thanks for your suggestion, I will make some adjustments to the costumes. Also want to ask questions on the belt, I want to use the slingshot bag or canvas bag in the picture below to hang on the waist, their size is 5 inches, do not know if this has strict requirements?


Thank you again for your reply!

Pouches should be fine. As long as they look like they are in universe. The cloth pouches you will need to fill to give them some life and not look flat. And make sure they are not a camp print of any kind.

I like the leather option better. The cloth are workable but stay wlaway from the camo ones. And think about modding them a bit, maybe a panel of sintra or something.

Ok. If I want to choose one of the above pictures, is your recommendation 1 or 2? I personally think that Figure 2 will be better, but I am afraid that it will affect the review. :porg1:

2 = the OD Green?  After it's weathered, and if you modify it a bit like I suggest, should be fine.

I mean this leather bag, is it feasible? :porg1:
In addition, I am going to find a belt of the same color, and then find a girdle.

When you're replying to multiple people, reply to them all in the same post.  Posting a reply to someone, then posting a new reply to someone else when no one else has posted is double posting.  Repeated offenses can earn a temporary forum ban and I'd really hate to see that happen.  So instead of posting multiple times, include all your responses and replies in the same post.
