I've been working on this for a few weeks now so I thought I'd share my progress. Im making an OFST armor set but going for a legend of zelda paint style, ill also be making the master sword and shield for my weapons. I might make a small gun as well but don't know if ill have enough time for now. So far I have the shoulders, forearms, and shins printed. Next up are the thighs but the file doesn't fit my printer. Going to figure that out next as I work on the sword.

Ahhh yeah. I am a Stan for cross-over armor builds. Will you be making the traditional sword and shield or a mash-up version of those as well?

Outer shells done and done! Last piece finished last night. Trying out "welding" insted of gluing this time. It ain't pretty but so far its alot stronger than when I glued them. Going to finish up attaching the new parts while the inner thigh parts print.

Got everything else welded and started filling the gaps. The inner thigh pieces were rough, tried using up a few partial rolls but I couldn't figure out how to hot-swap the rolls so I tried somthing different. I ran the roll out, figured out how much was left to print, sunk the model down in cura and hit print! Sad I can't get hot-swapping figured out but atleast im not wasting what I got printed anymore.

Been a bit but got some more progress done. Thigh pieces are ready for final paint and the legs are almost ready for plastidip. Unfortunately I have misplaced my shoulder pieces and am still looking for them. My forearm pieces still have a good bit of sanding left as well. The helmet finished printing and has been welded together. I'm also working on a plasma pistol but I can't decide if I want it for this outfit or not. I'll already have a sword and shield so not many hands left to hold a gun too.

Got one side done with fiberglassing. While its drying i got the visor printed and started filling it in. Going to do some more research on vacume forming the visor. I dont think the pla will hold up under that heat so... ill figure it out. And lastly for the fan, I cut and spliced a USB end to the fan and it kinda works. It runs but not as fast as I'd like. Going to have to figure out how to speed it up or look for another cooling method.

Coating the PLA visor buck in a layer of bondo will help prevent the buck from melting when you go to vacuum form. Adds a little bit more work to do, but also adds a layer of protection when it's done.
