Watching this build with great interest....

Approximately how many (hundred) hours will the files take to print?


I have no idea but probably a lot, haven't really kept track. Since I've started this thread I've almost been printing non-stop with the exception of a couple weeks of down time because of technical errors and having to order new filament. Each piece takes anywhere from 4-13 hours to print.

Here is an update, pretty much done printing the majority of the suit. All that you see has already been glued together, but I'm still going to fiberglass the main armor pieces for extra strength/support. Now the real hard work is going to start which is cleaning up, modifying, and making this suit wearable. Suit looks amazing when laid out all together, I think when actually finished it's going to look pretty epic. Here are some pics,

Here's a the glove printed, came out perfect, still have to add the side knobs and get the fingers working the way I want.

Started some modifications on the legs, still quite a bit to work to do on it to get it finished.

Found some nice flexible rubber mat for the elbow and knee inserts.

Remodeled the bottom collar piece on the elbow, to have more of an angle like the screen used piece, It still needs some missing details added.

That's it for now. More to come.

That's so awesome to see it all laid out. How many hours do you think it took to print everything?

Looks amazing! And Im curious about how the gloves will turn. One of the minor flaws of the original suit is watching how soft (specially since TVs improved) the original hands could look under some lights. So, while Im not sure how comfortable these will be, theyd look more metallic.

Yeah I know exactly what your saying. Although having them be plastic when finished won't be entirely screen accurate I still think it will look pretty cool. This is pretty much how I'll be doing the gloves, http://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=244237 See last post in that thread.

I have no idea, but I could tell you I've been printing almost non-stop for 7 months. There has been a few weeks of setbacks within the timeframe of starting this thread but it still feels like I've been printing non-stop.

Thank you again guys for your support. I went ahead and decided to tackle the left arm. I figured I would take on the hardest part first. This I believed was going to be the hardest part of the suit to modify and straighten out to look a lot more like what you see on screen and I was definitely right. This was a really hard piece to work on, it was missing tons of detail compared to the other parts of the suit. Pretty much all the lines, vents, etc... were just not there. The model had holes in it, jagged lines, bad geometry etc... So I basically de-mantled the whole entire piece once printed and used it as a base to add in all the detail i desired. All the pieces that were removed were built from scratch using styrene.

It's still not completely finished, i still need to add in the screw detail, a couple other details, and give it another sanding or two but for the most part I think it looks pretty awesome. Enjoy,.....










More to come. I'm doing all the heavy modifications first on every piece of armor, then I'll be fiberglassing everything. After fiberglassing I'll go ahead and do all the major body work, make it wearable and then paint.

Thank you. Here is another update.

Here's the progress of the modifications on the left leg. It needed quite a bit of work. I felt the legs were going to be the next hardest piece to modify so I went ahead and went to work on the left leg. The model was missing quite a bit of details and had a funny big lip on the end of the leg near the knee. I went ahead and removed the lip and rebuilt it to more closely match the screen used leg.

It still needs quite a bit of smoothing and body work but the major modifications are done at this point. It also still needs the screw detail added in but I'll probably do all the screw detail last on all the pieces once everything is done.
