How about a Confetti AR?
This looks awesome
I've actually printed the same armor as you. I found that the only way I could avoid this is by wearing elbow pads with a little cushioning on the sides. Not sure how much space you're working with thoI bought some padded shirt and shorts to fill out the suit and give it a resemblance to an under suit. I actually think its start to look really good. I ran into some problems with the suit, when giving it a test run.
1. The inner elbow keeps getting pinched when I move my arm in a specific way. (If some one could give me advice as to not get pinched that would be great.)
2. The thighs keep falling down even with a belt attaching it, I will try and fix that.
3. The shins are too free moving, I will put foam in them.
I printed out an AR and I will start sanding it. I took photos with it

Okay then, I'll try that out! Thank you.Could only try to recommend putting some foam into the bicep/foream but it will never solve the problem. If you're bending your arm too much your skin will always be going between those 2 hard pieces. I've always had bruises even tho all my resin pieces were padded and secured in correct positions. Just part of it being hard armor.
As for your thighs pulling your belt - it's just the weight of all pieces everything down. If you want to keep thighs in desired position I'd recommend doing some straps going from your shoulder to the belt so it won't get pulled down. And from there you can just adjust the thighs to desired length and it should remain there.
I will probably end up doing that but so far I've learn how to minimize itI've actually printed the same armor as you. I found that the only way I could avoid this is by wearing elbow pads with a little cushioning on the sides. Not sure how much space you're working with tho
