An update for you all! Finally dragged myself to the basement to work more on filling 3D print lines. I've been using UV resin to speed up the process. It's stinkier and messier, but definitely faster than spot putty.

Here's one shin in progress



I also dirtied up my vest! Looks much better now.

More leg progress!

This is has by far been the most tedious piece since the helmet, and now I have to do the other one  :laugh:

Here's the journey from base colors to weathered. The entire shin is held together with strategically placed velcro.

Kurshi, your compliments mean a ton considering I've always admired your kit!!!  :D

Working on hip plates now and the back plate is on the printer!

Primed and ready for red. Hoping to get this first hip finished tonight and the second by tomorrow.



As I've been working on my own kit, I've ALSO been working on several friend kits!

Here's my "finished pieces" shelf which includes some of my own gauntlets and shin, but also my friend's armor!



And in the basement workshop we have another liege and ursa wren style in progress for two more friends. All for post imperial squad.

I really appreciate that! Thank you!

It's so fun to watch each other build and think, "Man, I'd like to meet them and get a picture together some day."  :laugh:

I've been a bit hesitant to try to do any large print jobs especially since I'm fairly new to 3d printing. I don't know how exactly to slice things to print them in pieces because I don't think it's possible in cura. But I'm antsy to just try to print some post imp parts for my "Oops" vest that I bought. Haha.

All that to say, your prints are gorgeous!

It definitely took years of trial and error! hahaha.

You can't cut in cura, but you can in a free program called meshmixer. I use it frequently to slice things up before printing. Tons of youtube tutorials!!
