Reach Forearm Size

Hey there 405th! I’m just getting started with my first build, and I just finished my first print! I’m looking for a little advice. I can’t tell if this forearm I printed is massive and needs to be resized, or if it’ll be fine after some padding.

It looks like its been scaled well. Padding will help keep it in place and center it. I made my forearms a bit too big so when I bend my arm it hits the bicep armor. This isn't the biggest issue though as everything still looks fine and I can still move enough to manage simple tasks

Ok, thanks! Another quick question. So I'm going to do some scaling on the bicep next. Should I expect a lot of space between my arm and the armor piece? It looks to be a pretty hefty piece in Armorsmith, even at 100% scale!

The MKVB biceps sit kinda low on the ingame spartans and are maybe 80-90% the total height of the forearms. Take your measurements more then you think you need to. Ideally the suit should look like it fits you. Screenshot_20210322-155543_Chrome.jpg This is a reference from one of TurboCharizard 's threads that I used for reference along with theater mode. I cheeped out and didn't use Armorsmith when I scaled my stuff and the biceps I printed look proportional but the bottom opening was a bit tight. I could fit my arm through no problem but bending caused the part to dig into me. I used Moe's files for these and ended up cutting off the lip around the opening. I measured where I thought it should sit on my bicep and to get its overall height and then measured (poorly) the opening and scaled the X,Y axis so I would fit in it. I've not done any sort of rigging or post processing on hardly anything but at least I know it fits!
