    1st Build My custom 3D printed halo reach armor build journey (So Far)

    Hey, It's great to see someone starting to do a similar build to mine, and 3D printing is a fantastic hobby to get into! Ive been finishing 3D prints for years now, and 3d printing for even longer, but this is by far the biggest project Ive ever done, and if I can help someone else with the...

    Ive been sanding my helmet for the last few days, among other things. Starting to get a finish i am satisfied with in a bunch of places, but there are still plenty of trouble spots I need to fix. For the helmet, at least, I'm going for as close to perfection as possible.

    Undersuit progress! Ive been printing out parts to be used as molds to be later made into silicon parts for my undersuit. So far Ive printed out the knee and elbows, and just finished printing the shorts. Ive also been modding Moes fantastic neck gasket model to fit more with my project. Ive...

    I havnt used XTC 3d ever, does it tend to fill in any details in your prints as well?

    Im guessing your finishing process for the prints is the standard Filler primer then sand, repeat, process? The finish and shine on these parts are fantastic.

    Finished printing both of the custom shoulder gaskets! the slide perfectly into the chest and back, which can be seen in the first Image. Its a bit hard to have everything connected right now though. I think the current plan is to eventually have all 4 parts of the chest plate(front, back, 2...

    So! I wasnt super thrilled with how the first version of my shoulder gasket came out, so i spent some time tweaking it. Red arrows point towards the updated version. I didnt like how flat and straight the first one was, so I extended and rounded it out. I also made the hole where my arm goes...

    Update! Ive printed a number of new parts recently, including parts that will be used as molds for the elbow and knee gaskets, as well as the shoe covers for my boots! Also, I printed the first draft of my shoulder/arm gaskets. In the pictures are just the raw prints and some still have...

    people have had success printing flexibles with bowden extruders but yeah it's though. Undersuit parts from chief in infinite were just posted in regards to 3d models. Great job on the armor so far tho

    the chest definitely isnt complete without this part, I'm surprised more suits don't have it. Im basing my suit off of this one seen in a few Microsoft ads, my goal is to get this level of quality. In order to do that, i need parts like this shoulder gasket.

    Worked on the shoulder gasket 3d model today, i think its mostly complete! tweaking has to be done to make it actually fit into the suit but good progress. I am planning on either printing it in pla, tpu, or maybe getting it molded in silicon. Any tweaks you think I should do?
