I'm curious if I'd be required to have these straps.

No you do not need those straps.  The references are to base your armor on, so it looks correct for the crusader Era.
Armor Construction / That new WIP smell...

So due to being dormant for a long long time, I have decided to reinvent my WIP and start fresh. Last update was about a decade ago so I'm going to wipe of the dust and get it going again. First some Pics.

So here is the suit, belt, bucket, gauntlets and gloves. Sandals are optional. I know I'm going to need to take up the arms and legs cause they're pretty baggy.

Side view. I have bought an electronic screen to go in the gauntlet. I also got some other ideas for those.

And here's what everyone came for, the back side. My girlfriend says i look like I'm flexing. I'm assuming that is the belt. I am planning to have a Kama.

Not pictured (yet) is my plates. I have a full set of Boba style plates that I had help from some of you lovely gents helped me form this at an armor party a couple years ago. Also not pictured is my vest. Mostly because I don't have it yet. I did commission one and it'll be here in 2-3 weeks.  :like: Super excited about that. I'll do pics with it and plates taped on when it gets here. I'll have more in another update soon. Like this year. Maybe even this month.
Absolutely agree with you! It's great to see communities coming together for a good cause. I'm glad the Mercs 'Naast Clan participated in the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Parade invasion and helped raise awareness on such an important issue.

Got some new full kit (sans helmet) pics, including some close-up shots from the hips up to get a better perspective of the spacing.

Hey there! Want to ask questions about 3D printing/3D printers/3D files? Check out this thread here, and ask away.

As for the colors, paint patterns, and plate placement, I think it looks great. This will be an awesome kit to see in real life once you have it finished!

Speaking of Fusion 360, I'm still tinkering with it too. I tried to start a helmet, but it looked more like an elephant, and then I got all hung up on the cheek curves. I'll probably have to start over again now that I know where I made my mistakes. For the armor files, have you checked out the free STL's here on Thingiverse? Forge_Master (The Forge Master from the Outer Rim) has a great set for free, which I intend to use on my PI kit.

I'm curious if I'd be required to have these straps. They don't seem to have any real purpose other than artistic choice. I could be wrong though. Has there been a known use for these? Or even a guess? My initial thought was to hold that central armor up piece up, but on second look that piece looks connected already. Also, they don't appear to be leather so I'm trying to figure out what they would be made of

There are also a number of resin cast helmets available, as well as Vacuums formed ABS armors available as well. For the full DIY route, you have multiple options for materials, including 3mm-6mm Sintra or 1/6" ABS sheets, both of which are thermal plastic. There are also several YouTube tutorials on how to make a helmet out of 5 gallon buckets and hardhats/bicycle helmets.
