    Building this for my Robert-025. Finished the unfold a couple months ago, but just got the foam for it. Im gonna update this thread sometimes, but Ill post way more updates in my Instagram stories (@smelms). I plan to post my unfolds after I finish the prop and costume.

    I had to split the file into 8 parts because pep kept crashing and losing all my work. Not just unsaved work. It would make the entire file unusable. I could have solved that with multiple saves, but I split it instead so I could work without loading the entire gun at once. An unintended benefit of this was that the new faces could be used as support pieces to hold the shape.

    Here's the profile of the thing. This is the part I wouldnt have without the sides that were created when I split the model.

    Interestingly enough, the paint job makes it look like different colored play-dough....:D

    Ill post the unfolds here for now. (The support pieces are in a million slices because pep wouldnt join them. I taped them together after printing. Also, I recommend printing the support pieces 5% larger to avoid the crimping I got between the chunks.)
