Well It has defiantly been quite a few years since I built my last suit, but I now have me an Ender 5 Plus so its time to build a 3rd set of armor. Practiced my first few prints with the Halo infinite AR and now working on the suit. Hand Plates only took a few hours each and are scaled perfectly. Right forearm is a little over half way done
printing should be done after work tomorrow. The files for the armor were made by moesizzlac.

Had a little layer shift about half way up no biggie. Forearm length is perfect but my big hands don't quite fit through the hole but didnt want to scale it up since the length was perfect. Going to try and remove the outlined portion with a jewelers saw since its on the under side so my hand will fit and reattach with some small neo dim magnates. Since is on the under side it shouldn't get pushed out or really noticeable.

I had that same problem! and same idea! I decided to just print the piece without the little top part in it and attach that with magnets. Also I am using the Anycubic Chiron. Looking good so far!

I thought about doing the one with the piece missing to but the inside wasn't smooth and required more filament with supports. Even after removing and re positioning alot of them the V2 version just took less time.

Well Had the factory plastic extruder break (shocker) so after an all metal replacement and fresh bed level the parts have been coming out SUPER clean and sharp.

Since then the biceps and shoulders have finished up nicely and fit like a glove. Need to get me a soldering iron with a wide tip to try my hand at PLA welding these 2 pieces together.

Also Boot toe's and heel's just came off the printer today with the mid section and clips finishing up tomorrow.

Up coming next will be the Shins and will have to try some fancy supports or model in some more solid structure as each shin will take 5 days and about 900 grams of filament.

While I'm waiting for left shin to finish decided to try my hand at blender. Left shin has a big section of support material that went down to the build plate. Added in quite a few 45degree angles under the overhangs and was able to completely remove support material in the inner section going down to the build plate. That removed 13 hours and 100 grams less off the build. Not much I could do about the external supports, if its there something starts printing mid air

71.5 Hours on the second shin about 8.5 hours to go. Shaved about a day off the first one with some crafty modeling,

Have moved into the Smoothing process and trying to get down my process. Using wood filler diluted with water painted 1 coat on sanded with 400 grit then primed. Still shows some layer lines and poor sanding so will have to sand down some more add spot putty and re primer.

Shoulders went a bit better with 2 coats of diluted wood filler the second being a bit thicker. This time around sanding with 400 grit and then 800 grit. Turned out much smoother and only a few rough spots like the bottom will require spot putty.

2 coats of primer, may need some light 800 or 1200 grit wet sanding in the morning to get super smooth for paint.

Small update had to travel for a few weeks for work and couldn't get the printer going while I was gone. 114ish hours for the left thigh only 42 or so hours left.
