not happy with the limbs right now so i'm putting the project on hold till I buy a 3d printer
:( your doing so good though! Dont stop!

A 3d printer is really nice to have, and if you truly want one and have enough money, I'd say go for it, but we have all had some serious screwups or dead ends that didnt look like they would ever fix themselves. I think you should continue while waiting for your wonderfull machinery to come in, and work on another part of the suit, and come back to the problem later. This will encourage you to keep going, while not having a too long of a brake that you forget about your build/get weighed down about working on it. I have made this mistake many a times ant that's why it took me 3 years to build my suit.

Your doing great, and this is such a good build! Keep up the good work!

Lol kinda ambitious to purchase a 3D printer just because you don't like the forearms.

... although..... that's not a bad plan...
Bizarre and risky has worked for me so far. I need a break from the contact cement in my small space. In the mean time I've been practicing paint on my ODST TurboCharizard helped with the stenciling (forever greatful). Already have the stl's for the limbs and helmet

No plans of stopping gladzykei and tiffanygordoncosplay have been helping with some tips 3d printer wise. Just planning and making room for that. Not going to give up fighting the fight :)

going to do some research and see if I can find a contact cement substitute that won't give me headaches

Dude, I am a huge fan of contact cement, but I recently meandered curiously into the world of super glue.

Now, obviously don't huff the fumes, BUT THIS STUFF IS AMAZING!

If you're looking for a substitute, I'd recommend it. The liquid, not the gel.

Any particular brand you'd recommend? I was looking two part glue for the printing.

3D printing I'm not sure which is best but TurboCharizard is bomb at that. He's got a thread or two in the 3d print section and his daisy build is also really good. If goi read through those he's got better info.
For 3D printers, join Team Tevo with ODST Langford and I.

For glues, BSI InstaCure+ and InstaSet for the CA glue and accelerator. My SPARTAN-III is assembled entirely with that out the outer seams and hot glue backers and I've only had a few blowouts so far. For CA glue to work you need perfectly flat mating surfaces or else you'll be having a real bad time.
