Hello all. I've been planning on making a set of clone trooper armour from eva foam and I would just like to ask how thick should the foam pieces be? I've heard some people say 6mm but others have said 10mm. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

It depends on the part. If it's something large and flat, you could get away with thicker (9-12mm) foam, but for tighter curves, something like 6-8mm is better suited. If there are any details on the suit, you may want some even thinner foam - I personally like 1mm and 3mm for details.
