    Oh boy here I go printing again. A customer asked us to make some Copperhead armor for their freelancer, so here we are. After some correspondence we got the scaling correct and the printing begins this weekend.

    First up is the Butt plate, had to hop into Meshmixer and work some scaling/slicing magic with the Halo 5 source files. So far so good.

    Printing it right now. Then on to the other armor pieces.

    We have a complete butt plate.

    The Shins presented a unique challenge to get the inside as smooth as possible, thanks to their round curve. Additionally, taking some lessons from my own armor, I worked to make them as thin/light as possible without sacrificing the integrity of the piece.

    Was able to slice them in such a way that I can print a whole shin at a time. Now tomorrow the first one should be complete.

    Shin pieces are now complete. Now to progress on the rest!

    Your the flash of 3d printing. Looking great so far. Do you have a printable helmet file?

    Haven't really messed with it yet. The customer isn't looking for it. Just the armor pieces, shins, boots, thighs, butt plate and chest.
