Ive been loving my CR-10 v3. Its a work horse.
The prusa mini is solid. It's reliable, and turns out good prints with minimal baby-sitting. It is pricier and has a smaller build plate which can be annoying. I think now that I have experience with it I'd feel comfortable buying a cheaper larger printer that needs more hand holding.

The suit progresses. I've finished printing the shoulder parts, and have moved on to finishing them. I'll post pictures of where that's at once I get home from work, but its been slow as I'm at the mercy of the warm weather (or lack thereof). The biggest lesson I'm learning so far is not to rush, I got as far as priming some of them and I'm not pleased with the bondo and epoxy work so it's more epoxy+more sanding until I repaint.

Alright, Picture time.

So far I've been using a two part thin epoxy coating. It works, but going forward I'm going to try some epoxy made for covering 3d prints.

Feet first into hell right?

These are the boots. They were very cheap on Amazon. They were supposedly size ten, but they're definitely bigger than that. Once they're broken in I think some insoles and maybe thick socks will make them comfortable enough for cons. I wouldn't go hiking in them though.

I took a bit of a break between changing jobs and being annoyed with myself for rushing the shoulder armor. But I finally got back into things. I got some sandpaper and fixed the ugliness of the shoulder armor and repainted it. They should be done tomorrow when I can go buy more paint. Printing has started on the forearms and I made an Amazon order to get Velcro, webbing, and random buckles. I also got finger-less gloves.
