Halo Reach 3D Printed Spartan Build

Honestly I prefer to have my pieces bigger than smaller. I think the one mistake most people make when scaling their armor is making to fit their body instead of scaling it to where you need a little bit of padding. Spartans are bulky and most people don’t have those proportions so just in my opinion I want the armor to slip easily and the void space have padding. Just my 2 cents!
I totally understand that. I have not altered any of the files beside the forearm so I can keep the bulkiness. The default forearm size was just a bit to small so needed to scale that up. Will propably print two sizes of the forearm in the end to see which size looks best and gives the best movement because its very diffecult to tell just using Armoursmith.

Just a small update since my last post. Was going to wait untill I had a good amount off armour pieces before posting again but that might be a while since I can't continuously print things and the filament I get is expensive. Going to try some cheaper stuff for the small parts of the suit to save on money. So far I have printed the other hand cover and shoulder pad. I have also printed a forearm piece which I ended up enlarging to fit my hand through instead of finding a way to clip the two halfs together. Time will tell if the enlarged size will look silly :lol:

I also really wanted the UA attachment for my helmet so I converted a pep file I found and sized it to what I thought would fit and it turned out great. (added the top square detail myself)

I bought some bits and pieces for the undersuit such as gloves, sports gear and some "scuba hex" material made by Yaya Han which I will add to areas of the undersuit which are visible as I doute a full undersuit made of the material would be comfortable.

i have to agree with you there DefineLuck i printed the bicep to fit my arm and manit was horrable it hurt getting it on and was worse taking it off. so i can always add padding in the undersuit or the armor its self

My printer has been working hard for a couple weeks now so just wanted to show what I have been up too. First I have been printing out some smaller bits of the armour to see how the cheaper PLA filament was which has been working well so will keep the price of this build way down.

(Here are those bits ranging from the belt area, knife and knee pads as well as some of the chest attachments.)

I also finished the other forearm so got all the upper bits done excluding the chest. (using fidlock connectors to attach the shoulderpad)

I have also made the calf armour pieces as well.

The coming week I will be printing the thighs, shoes then the remaining chest attachment piece and finaly the chest and back armour.
