Ive started 3d modeling the shoulder/upper back gasket/underarmor! planning on printing this in flexible filament or having it molded in silicon.

Worked on the shoulder gasket 3d model today, i think its mostly complete! tweaking has to be done to make it actually fit into the suit but good progress. I am planning on either printing it in pla, tpu, or maybe getting it molded in silicon. Any tweaks you think I should do? View attachment 298900 View attachment 298901 View attachment 298902
i really like the look of it make the chest pop and look more complete. this is a really good look for the armor

the chest definitely isnt complete without this part, I'm surprised more suits don't have it.

Im basing my suit off of this one seen in a few Microsoft ads, my goal is to get this level of quality. In order to do that, i need parts like this shoulder gasket.

thats for sure the more detailed the suit the better it looks and the more pro level the armor looks,...

I've been planning on doing my gaskets out of foam but I'm really interested in seeing how the Silicone turns out!

Update!

Ive printed a number of new parts recently, including parts that will be used as molds for the elbow and knee gaskets, as well as the shoe covers for my boots! Also, I printed the first draft of my shoulder/arm gaskets. In the pictures are just the raw prints and some still have supports on.

Ive also been working on modifying Moe's neck gasket 3d model to work for me. What you see in these pictures is the draft 3d print of my trying to get the length right. I think I've got the right length, now I need to give it a less "super vertical" look and have the center bow inward. Once I get it right, I will print out the full neck gasket and use that to have a mold be made for silicon casting.

So!
I wasnt super thrilled with how the first version of my shoulder gasket came out, so i spent some time tweaking it. Red arrows point towards the updated version. I didnt like how flat and straight the first one was, so I extended and rounded it out. I also made the hole where my arm goes through smaller, along with a bunch of other small tweaks. This version is closer to my inspiration, which is the last image.

Let me know what you think of the change! I always embrase constructive criticism in all my work, so if theres something that looks of, please let me know!

Finished printing both of the custom shoulder gaskets! the slide perfectly into the chest and back, which can be seen in the first Image. Its a bit hard to have everything connected right now though.

I think the current plan is to eventually have all 4 parts of the chest plate(front, back, 2 shoulders) be connected as one piece. It would be able to be put on top down over my head.

Undersuit progress!

Ive been printing out parts to be used as molds to be later made into silicon parts for my undersuit. So far Ive printed out the knee and elbows, and just finished printing the shorts.

Ive also been modding Moes fantastic neck gasket model to fit more with my project. Ive made it longer as to extend all the way up my neck up to my chin, and I extended a ring at the top of the gasket as to cover up the hole in between the helmet and my chin/neck. I also gave it a more natural curved shape at the neck. LMK if you want any of the files Ive made, like the shoulder gasket or the modified neck. I will be releasing all the 3d models Ive worked on (except the ones I initially payed for, like the base armor set Im using from etsy) eventually.
