    Need help with attaching pieces!

    I made a custom suit of armor out of 16 guage steel sheets, but I am having some issues. The back and chestplate are separate pieces, that attach over the shoulders and under the arms. I bought some clasps from amazon, but they can't handle the stress. Any ideas on how to connect the pieces?

    I made a vacuum formed PETG visor for my MK5B helmet. What would be the best way to add a mirrored tint?

    I was considering using the Ipoly dye, however, that would only give me a tint and not any reflectivity. I've need other posts here saying I could use an airbrush with a specific paint, however I don't have an airbrush. What is a different way I could get a reflective 1-way finish on the visor?

    Need help with 3D model!

    I made some custom 3D models in Blender, but when I load them into Armorsmith, they get unfolded into a huge mess. Is there a way for me to pick and choose which faces are an individual piece of paper? I triangulated the mesh, but it didn't help much. Is the some sort of prepping that needs to...

    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...

    New Builder - Paper Build Hardening Tips?

    I was wondering if I could get some tips on hardening paper builds (cardstock 110lbs). After my last build, I tried the technique of hardening with fiberglass resin. Even with only applying a very thin layer, it's like the paper soaks up the liquid and the paper starts to deform / sag. I know...

    Pepakura Gloves That Don't Stick To Superglue

    I've been working on a suit of Reach armor, using the Pepakura method. As I'm sure any of you who have built this before are familiar with, some of the pieces you have to glue are very very small, So when you are super gluing the cardstock tabs together it is not uncommon for glue to get on your...

    How do I cut a 3d print file into smaller parts?

    I am about to start making my first suit with a 3d printer. Most of the files for Noble 6 that I found on thingiverse are small enough to fit my Creality CR10 3d printer, but the chestplate is way too big. The blue lines are the borders of the print bed. I cant make it smaller because it...

    So in this Pepakura zip file Halo: Reach - MJOLNIR Mark V - Standard , there is a file for "Thigh" and "Thigh Left" and I was curious where the right thigh is.

    How to enhance models based on model textures?

    So I've been attempting to enhance the models of the Achilles set of which I plan to make on Pepakura, but I've really only dabbled a bit on Blender and didn't want to make the armor inaccurate.
