  1. Ask tons of questions! Here on the boards there is a lot of experience. I have my WTF build thread in the sig below if you want another reference.
  2. and use the force, fly fighters and stand on a bridge
  3. The fun part of the print so far has been the chest. The file came with the back yoke and the chest all in one piece No easy way someone could probably put that on without causing something to break or let alone get stuck. To fix this I downloaded meshmixer (free software) and proceeded to remove the portions that are not needed. I still have to smooth out a few portions where the "cuts" where made. Digital cuts are so much easier that real cuts It was a great crash course in learning how to use Meshmixer. Quick question does anyones FOTK kits have those green tabs/indents on the left and right side near the back? I'm thinking of filling these in for when I make the files 501st approvable.
  4. Shoulder bells are done. I think they could be a tab bit larger (who doesnt need bigger shoulder bells?) but I can reprint them later on if needed.
  5. Oh for sure! That way it can be a visual reference of the 3D files then and show what is inaccurate for it for 501st approval
  6. Oh the printer is more for me, and him getting a FOTK costume is more practice for me before I start doing my own. I want to tackle the Sean Fields Shoretrooper for myself and possible Inferno chest and back armor as I already got the bucket. Plus the printer is sooo cool!
  7. Hes excited for now, we will find out in a few months what his attitude is once we get him suited up lol Since it was more a build I wasn't sure if the 3D section was a good spot to capture that piece. And since I purchased the files I did not want to post the files for sharing (plus they are not quite 501st approvable so I did not want that to be confused with anyone.) Thought I could document the build and show what goes into finishing the 3D printed parts here.
  8. Looking forward to this build!
  9. I try to get them to the dark side early on He is already saying as he grows I need to make new parts for him lol
  10. Hi All, Wanted to capture this build I am doing for my 5 year old that is a 3D printed FOTK. Now I have reviewed the 3D printed files and they are not 501st approvable without some modifications but the aim here is the kiddo wants to be a stormtrooper and the files are good enough that it will meet that goal and still look really good. The file is from CG trader https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/hobby-diy/other/stormtrooper-armor-first-order-from-star-wars I purchased it for about $30 as it was a good base to build for him and my 3D modeling skills are still far from being anything respectable. For my printer I have a Tronxy X5S that has been modified to linear rails in the X and Y axis. Heat Bed at 24 volts and a duet 2 wifi board. Most of the parts I am currently printing in Inland White PLA 1.75mm using a 0.6mm Nozzle and a 0.15mm layer height. I am also using Armorsmith program to get the scale correct to the kiddos frame. In Armorsmith, you get an avatar and with body measurements you can adjust the avatar to a decent model of your body. This greatly takes a lot of guess work out of scaling a print to size. Below you can see the forearms and biceps have been completed in the print. I'll update more as the build and print come along. Currently printing out the shoulders now.
  11. I actually want to do the same thing, you don't happen to know where one can find the templates?
  12. I'm still thinking of getting the bigger bells, i would like that gap to be a bit closer on my kit
  13. I did to my skin for sizing, For me the compression suit did not matter for fitting. I suppose it would really matter pending on what your undersuit is made of
