  1. Having heard from someone who worked on the suits, they were originally gold leafed, and then switched to gold paint for repairs, so there was plenty of both on screen. However, requiring gold leaf at any level does not sound like a reasonable proposal for hobbyists. I would advocate for an open-ended wording and not specifying the source of the gold color in the CRL. What is the latest status of this CRL?
  2. @Nairy - just wanted you to know that you were the very first thing I ever printed to test out my new resin printer! Scaled at like... 8% haha I definitely did some damage in my enthusiasm to rip the supports off, so lesson learned there, but overall, very happy with this little guy and he lives on the shelf in my workshop now. Thanks for making this file available to us! Printed in about 4 hours with Anycubic High Speed Resin.
  3. Bumping this thread for update, and figured I would add a few more proposed CRLs not mentioned above and some info. Obviously, someone has to build them first, but the below should fall under the FISD and I encourage someone to make them happen!

  4. Congratulations troopers! It's wonderful to see our hardworking members be recognized for their contributions and hopefully this will be a regular occurrence in the new term.
  5. I love it and support your efforts! Looks like there is plenty of reference to compare to and warrant a new ROTJ-based Heavy CRL. Good luck and keep us posted!
  6. Duuuuude number these - someone's gonna have to go in and count all 200 to check?
  7. At that point, have the paint code Glen provided mixed, imo. Stay tuned though, I have a project I've been working on that I'll share shortly and it may help with your decision if you're not in a rush.
  8. I purchased one of these recently for this purpose, if it helps! https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B088K3KP4F/
  9. Ohhhh, I remember now - we talked on Facebook. Gotcha - well, it looks like Glen has you sorted as to photos, so keep us posted with how it goes and you can always keep Gio as a backup. Happy crafting!
  10. Many of us have switched to Behr Premium No. 52 Gloss White, if it is available in your region. It sprays significantly nicer than the previously recommended Rust-Oleum rattle cans, matches the Denuo Novo white ABS decently well, and is still decently inexpensive. I don't own or want to invest in an HVLP spray gun system at this time, so mixing custom automotive colors wasn't really an option.
  11. Unless you're a professional cobbler, I might just give Gio at Crow Props a shout, as he makes custom sized boots regularly.
  12. It's been asked and answered at length, and it's probably not what you want to hear, but in short - the juice really isn't worth the squeeze to print a full set of Stormtrooper armor at this time, IMO. The available files aren't very accurate, slicing and re-joining large parts that need to flex is not practical, and there are several options available in ABS at a reasonable price point. You will likely spend the same amount of money on filament/resin, WAY more time filling, sanding, and painting, and still end up with an inferior product that is less accurate in appearance and less durable by comparison. It can be done, but it would take a real passion for the project. There is a reason we have not seen a single 3D printed suit come across for approval here on the forums, though it does depend on your local GML's application of the CRL standards at Basic if one can be approved at all. But it is not common. Some day, as printers get bigger and prices come down, maybe. /$0.02
