    Confusion with foam and pepakura

    I've been wanting to create a set out of armor out of foam and heard that the Halo 3 ODST 1.2 armor from the armory would be a good start. While I have some basic understanding on pepakura and its assembly, but I have zero clues on how to use templates meant for foam. From where to attach...

    Foam Combat Evolved Anniversary Mk.V Foam armor build (with pepakura files!)

    I recently sold my halo 2 MK VI armor, and I've been planning to build a new one now, I'm totally in love with infinite's armor (both Chief's and the multiplayer's Mark VII), but I'd rather wait for more accurate files and reference material once the game is released so, instead of building a...

    Props Halo Infinite Battle Rifle BR75

    Where to begin again, Pepakura to Foam

    Hi All, I've gotten amazing advice here before and I'm in need again. I started on a Master Chief armour build over a year ago and I had to take a break from it for quite a while. I got to the point that I've cut out and assembled the entire armour through Pepakura in card stock to make sure it...

    Tool to Help Cut Bevels and Mini-Tutorial

    I came across this file on Thingiverse for a helper tool to cut 90, 60, and 45 degree angles. I'm skeptical of these tools usually, but it's a quick print, so why not try it out? Sharing my finding here for anyone looking for help in cutting angles and bevels in their foam. Print Settings Used...

    Doom 2016 Praetor suit

    I started an EVA foam Praetor Suit build a little while ago, with the goal of having something to do during the great quarantine of 2020. I've been dicking around with it for a while and feel like I finally have something to contribute to this site. So far I have the helmet done-ish, the arms...

    (Mostly) Recycled Halo Flood Infection Form

    Templates at bottom of post Since I can't get more foam the the moment, putting my current projects on hold, I've decided to challenge myself to make something out of scraps I have laying around. I'm taking a bit of a leap with this one, making the Halo 3 Flood Infection form. It's not full...

    Lobbster's Reach Build

    Edit: Main build is now complete! I decided to do a fun quarantine project with the 144 sq ft of harbor freight I happened to have sitting around so my custom spartan was born! Playing Reach on PC again really brought back the desire to be my own spartan. So far I have the shoulderpads, biceps...

    RvB Sarge Mark VI Armour

    [Gruffy voice] Well folks, it looks like I'm gonna need me some new armour. The boys promised they would clean my old set for me, provided I remove my shotgun from their backs. I don't know why I put my faith into those dirtbags - Grif got double-stuffed Oreo crumbs all over it, there's lipbalm...

    First Reach armor build - WIP

    Hello everyone! I've been a huge fan of Halo since I was young but never had the opportunity to play it until this year. And now the hype is stronger than ever! I've done some sintra and 3D printing works before but foam is something new. I tried it a few years ago but never managed to make...

    Foam & Foundry's ODST Build

    I've got some decent progress done on my ODST already but I figured I'd start a thread so it's documented somewhere. It's foam with the smaller torso bits 3d-printed, and probably the helmet as well. I was thinking of charcoal gray with olive green accents for the color scheme, with either OD...

    Foam Kelly-087 Build

    Here's my progress on my Kelly build. I got the Boots, Shins, and Thighs mostly done. The boots still need a couple minor additions and they all still need to be cleaned up with kwik seal and a dremel. First almost full leg suit up. Feels good man. The boots have this super thicc foam in...

    Destiny - Phoenix Strife - Foam Unfold - Entire Suit Download

    Good morning! I finally finished doing all the retopology in Blender for this model and have unfolded the entire suit into foam templates. I purposely left out the small details in the armor because templates aren't needed for it. For the legs, I put the templates there for the shin part of the...

    Destiny - Phoenix Strife - Unfold Opinions

    Good morning! I noticed a massive lack of Destiny peps for foam or paper. The ones I do find are never an entire suit, just a weapon or helm here and there. I decided to learn Blender and did a complete Retypology of the Strife helm to do an unfold in Pepakura Designer. I've always worked in...
