That's right, I'm up to no good again and this time it's Jorge! I'm going to be primarily 3d printing Jorge's armor with foambuilt parts and undersuit. I also recently acquired a laser cutter so that will be used during this build!
The deets:
  • 7in tall stilts (Will make me about 6.5' tall)
  • Etilka with sounds(?)
  • LEDs EVERYWHERE APPARENTLY Jorge has no LEDs (Thanks KaeSpoon)
  • Fans EVERYWHERE
  • Primarily 3d printed
  • Foam parts being: boots, backpack, and Etilka
The objective is to get this done by Halo Outpost Discovery 2020 and then premiere it at that or Sci Fi Valley Con.
Update: Thanks to the lovely pandemic that decided to drop by all that stuff is not a thing, not sure when this project will be completed but hopefully sometime over the summer of 2021.

Spring 2022? This project keeps getting delayed...
I'll do my best to keep it updated as I go.
Me Scaled against game model (at aproximately 87%)
Updated photo with final scaling and final files used (helmet swapped for the Nerdforge Version)

Progress update! Everything at this point is a 20+ hour print so its going as expected. I have 15 kg of PETG pellets on their way for the filastruder. After that's turned into filament I'll begin printing the major pieces in PETG instead of PLA. Shoulderpads are CHONKY but that's as expected.

Handplates and forearms are printed! If the gloves look familiar I'm using the same pair for my other Reach build going on. I'm getting excited!

For those curious here's some 3d printing stats!
This is for the chest, codpiece, thighs, and shins
8.8kg of PETG
680 hours of print time
A lot of sanding...
The prints have begun! I luckily have access to erm... a few machines to depending on failures it should all be printed in a week or 2! Now I've got to focus on getting my other printer up and running again to print the grenadier shoulderpad and the laser cutter for the foam parts.
I also threw together a reference pack and I cannot wait to start painting this

Looking great! I would love to make a mostly 3d printed suit but unfortunatly I only have access to one printer so that would take many months to finish just the printing.
