    New Scout Recruit here with a question!

    Depending on your budget, you could also 3D print it. It won't be as durable as good fiberglass, but it's less messy, depending on how much smoothing you want. You still might need a space to use bondo or other filler in, but you can also fill with multiple good coats of wood glue. Don't use the...

    3D Printed ODST Build

    I could try to fix it tomorrow. The best way to share the model would probably be google drive or something similar, as the forum doesn't allow .blend files.

    3D Printed ODST Build

    It seems that the faces are bent and overlap, which can cause issues. The best fix would be to delete the faces in that area and create new triangles, but you could also try the remesh modifier or something like that (not sure of the exact name), which might fix the issue as well. Just make sure...

    3D Printed ODST Build

    Smoothing models isn't very difficult. In blender, you have to import the model and add the subdivision surface modifier, but that will smooth everything. To keep sharp edges, I think the easiest way is to set the edge crease. To do that, select the edge and press shift+E, then type one and...

    Coreforges MKVI Gen2 Build

    I'm not 100% sure about the cod piece. I don't really like the halo 5 one since it doesn't really exist, so I'd like to use the halo 5 mkvi one. From looking at it in the game assets, it looks fine. I'm not sure however if I should just use it the way it is or combine it with the original...

    3D Printed ODST Build

    Your layer shift problem could be due to the stepper drivers overheating. You can try that by placing a fan over them to cool them better. It could also be something binding up, but that would happen earlier as well. If you use Cura as a slicer, I could send you a post processing script that...

    Noble 4 Emile 3D printed build (getting pic heavy)

    Resin printers (sla) can produce relatively clear parts as well, I believe. They usually are pretty briddle though. You could also coat them with epoxy to strengthem them a bit.

    MKII Rogue Helmet

    I modified (added some thickness) to the model from the armory. You can easily do this by importing the model into blender and adding the solidify modifier, but I believe you have to export it from pepakura first. If you want, I can also smooth it out a bit, so you don't have to do as much...

    Dash's 3d print thread

    I've had good experience with PVA on glass. I just coat my print bed with watered down PVA glue every few prints (you can see if it came of in some places as the surface will look shiny instead of matt), let it dry and make sure my first layer adheres well. My print bed isn't really calibrated...

    Coreforges MKVI Gen2 Build

    Small update: I haven't done a lot lately, but I built the second forearm and reinforced the shoulder things on them, since they seemed kinda flimsy to me. I had to solder the metal together since it is to thin to weld with a stick welder. I'd like to upgrade to a tig, but that has to wait for now.

    Blender problem cuz im a noob

    You should be able to select all the elements by pressing shift. That way, you can append them all together.

    Blender problem cuz im a noob

    You're currently in pose mode. You have to go to edit mode to add a camera. You can change what mode you're in by selecting it from the list between Pose and the shading method list, or by pressing tab, which alternates between your two recent modes. To make the camera the active on which is...

    I have no clue where to start...

    One thing to consider with sheet metal is weight. If you're gonna be using steel, it will be very heavy, as steel is about 7 times more dense than PLA, and you need about 10kg of that for one suit. I you're using aluminium, it'll be less of an issue, but cost might be one, as aluminium is more...

    Thanks. I haven't seen gummidip either, but that could just be because I haven't been looking for it or because the hardware store near me doesn't carry it. I'd like to avoid regular spraypaint as it isn't very flexible and would probably crack on foam. I'll look around for acrylic paint to see...

    I'm planning on starting to paint soon, but I'm unsure what paint to use. Many people recommend Plastidip for foam, but I haven't seen that anywhere in Germany. I've also read that latex paint should be good and I can get 2.5l for about 20€, so pretty cheap. The remaining questions would be how...
