Printed out the top back right of the chest. Most of it came out good except for the shoulder area which got messed up by supports. I tried printing at an angle that would save material but caused that to happen. For now I did a bit of hand sanding to clean it up and im going to try printing the left half at a different angle. Worst case I get some battle damage haha

Man! It is so cool to see all the 3-D files you have put together! The tac pad you have is super awesome. Thats going to be such a cool touch when you are wearing the armor. You can check messages and everything without having to fish for your phone. Lol

I do actually have a spare arduino sitting around that I'm not sure what to do with or how to fully use yet. That'd be cool if I can find some way to connect it to phone messages!

Made some sections of the lower strap of the chest. These were originally part of a larger sections I cut out of the chest but those were just a little too big for the ender 3 so I split them up. I was going to try printing the larger sections I split these from but it would have been cutting it too close for the material I have left in my current roll of PLA+.

This is super cool! are you planning to having room in the data pad to fit your phone? I know you mentioned using an Arduino, but not sure if that's what you meant or not?

So the data pad doesn't have room for my phone, I was just thinking of making the tactical softcase attachment to hold my phone lol. The arduino would probably be for the tacpad.

Lmao, the red and orange PLA+ rolls really happened to be left over rolls, from a 3d printing club im part of, that no one else was using. You can ask spitzkitz he was there!
I like free filament too. I just take all of the neon filament that no one likes. Since there's already so much primer and filler putty, no one will ever notice.

See I felt bad taking the red and orange rolls since they look nice and I know they're going to be painted and covered up. That's why I usually go for black or gray. But free materials is free materials.
