Thanks Vode!

I just started printing the legs... this is going to take a while :P

I settled on a filament for the lower legs... going with Taulman Bridge Nylon because it has some flex and crazy good layer bonding. The problem with Nylon is that it is a pain to print and absorbs moisture... eight hours in the oven at 170 looks like it did the trick to dry it out.

If you look at the lower leg, you will not see a front and back half, it has a hidden split under the detail in the back, with the flex Nylon gives it will allow me to slip my foot in as it flexes and it will spring right back to shape. Pretty cool.

I will post some update shots when the print is complete.


I have been working on another weapon while the printer does its job, you can see it in my signature (last link) if you are so inclined.

Cheers!

I'm in love with the Shae Vizla/Hunter's Exalted bucket! I'm trying to print one myself but the file I have is converted from a Pepakura file and the details arent very good. This looks incredible! Fantastic job!

I am following this with a tremendous interest. 3D printing is so promising for mercs who know the ins and outs, and I think this is showing amazing potential!!

Astonishing print and design. I've recently had the chance to review a Raise 3D Pro Plus and searched for any related content here to see if anyone has ever used it to print some cool stuff. And, guy, your helmet turned out great.

I'm really amazed by the build quality of the printer (including the top-notch touchscreen!) as well as its accuracy. No wonder that the brand success is skyrocketing.

Hello,

How much would it cost to make one of these to be made for someone for them to wear>? I am looking for back options because I bought an armor kit and it came out nice but then found out this club is legit but they don't accept Eva foam armor kits. So I am looking at redoing it right now but also having back options just in case. the only thing that is 3D PRINTED is my helmet.
