  1. Excellent job on the helmet, definitely showing some progress. Since you have a 3d printer, you might check out the printable First Order armor I made and see if it'll work for creating the armor for you. My printer comes in tomorrow and I'm gonna be printing a miniaturized version of the armor, smooth it out, and upload a high poly scan so it'll (hopefully) be a little less work to create. shoot me a private message if you want the link to the 3d printable First Order Armor.
  2. The printer I'm getting has a decently large print bed. I'll still have to cut most of the pieces in order to fit them onto the platform. But superglue and sanding and plastic welding ought to be good for assembly. I'll still have to sand and paint and polish etc. I'll probably have the printer in about a month. In the meantime, I'm playing with the software and gathering sizing measurements and I may be printing some test pieces on the library 3d printer, just to get an idea of how it turns out.
  3. I made a new thread where I posted the link to my armor. I'll post it here too just in case it becomes a list thread. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1469595
  4. Hey guys, I've been working on this for a few, I didn't know exactly where to post this since I'm technically not assembling or printing anything yet This is my first experience with 3D files and 3D printing as well as with Trooping, so please be understanding about roughness and lack of detail. I ended up getting a pepakura First Order Stormtrooper Armor from pepakuravault.com and converted the file to an .obj. From there, I sized it in Meshmixer and then exported it and opened it in Blender to give it thickness and smooth it out a bit, then I moved it back to MeshMixer and reduced the mesh count so a small file wouldn't be 600 mb. The full set (digitally) measures at 1700 mm tall. and consists of 24 files. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1469595 Again, I'm new, please don't be too rough on me. Also, feel free to download and make edits to the files. I created them for the community to improve upon.
  5. here's a link for downloading the full suit, I'll post the separate parts on ThingiVerse. It's faster and easier. http://www.filedropper.com/markiiwhole
  6. I've got most everything converted, smoothed (roughly) and given a thickness. It doesn't look too bad. I have to wait a bit before publishing it on Thingiverse. I want it to be free and available for anyone who is better at this stuff than I am to make improvements. I'll start a new thread and link it on here when I officially get it all published. Here's some screen clippings. Don't judge too harshly haha
  7. I'm jumping back and forth between Blender and Meshmixer and checking mass/true dimensions in Cura. Latest versions of each. I'm using a different Helmet than the one they have there, the one I posted earlier in the thread is quite a bit better.
  8. I found the pep files from Pepakuravault.com There's a TFA concept armor and a full wearable one. but they are pep files and in need of some editing to smooth them up. Once I get them all cleaned up, I can upload them and post them on here. Some pieces work easily and I can get it sized and proper thickness, some stuff just behaves like mad. I'm struggling through it. One thing to mention, I have not made armor before and I don't have much of an eye for detail. When I do get them uploaded, I doubt they will be 501st ready. That said, hopefully by that point I'll be good enough with the sculpting and molding software to make necessary changes.
  9. I found a full TFA Trooper Pepakura set. I'm working on exporting the multiple pep files into an OBJ file and resizing and making the paper thin edges into (hopefully) 2 mm thick printable files. The printer I have on order is the Taz 5, which has a huge print base, so I probably won't be uploading any of the sliced files because they probably won't work on most other printers. That said, I don't have a printer yet, but I am working on the files and sizing and getting used to the software. Hopefully when I finally do print, these files turn out well.
  10. I'm just now getting into 3d printing, mostly for trooping and maybe the occasion Power Ranger helmet. I found a pretty decent TFA helm. I didn't make the file, it was actually done by The Armored Garage but I figured this thread would be a good spot to post the link. https://dl.orangedox.com/27dsyE1OUGh7ZAj7sL/Stormtrooper_print_shell_clean.STL Essentially he gets a Pep file and imports it into Meshmixer and thickens the walls/creases etc. I'm going to be working on a few of these this week and I'll try and post them here if I get anywhere.
  11. I'm from Oklahoma and my goal is to build or buy a fitting First Order Stormtrooper Armor. It's something I've been wanting to do for several years now and I recently got a new job that pays well enough for me to pursue this. It will be my very first build, I've read around the forums a bit and I still have no idea where to really start. I'm not that talented of a hobbyist, I paint miniatures, but they only turn out okay. Any help or reference material would be appreciated.
