Heh... I was literally just discussing the global phenomenon of expanding waistlines that has hit since September.

 

You read that article too huh?  :laugh1:

Awesome kit Tony, I got mine a while back too! While on topic.. would anyone benefit from this 3d model?: IMG_3552_zps5znp61iz.jpg

 

Personally, I don't have access to sheets of plastic and found it easier to print in ABS.

 

or if I did a 3d model of the "metal" shoulder part? (Just a thought)

The shoulder part sounds interesting. Would it be strong enough for that purpose?

Here you guys go! https://goo.gl/Vkmu46

 

It's just one, because you flip it to print the other side. (or just print two and flip it over) 100% infill takes about an hour and 40 minutes per part. the final should be about 3mm thick, and at the longest part is about 5 1/2 inches long

 

Also I did not try printing this is PLA, not sure how it would hold up..

I'm not sure, I mean it just needs to hold two snaps and stick out a bit for the shoulder bell, so I don't see why not...  I made a model of it but I need more white plastic to try it out.

 

I'm not completely against the metal, I just like to look at other options.

Yeah you are right. This might be more accessible to some people over a metal version. I think I'll give it a go.

I first thought about using aluminum but realized 2mm abs is pretty strong, light and pliable.

I'm still trying to hack together a suspension system for my big sexy torso.

Wife is already telling me to use bungee cords!   :laugh1:

Great thread, Tony!  Is there a suspension kit left or are you all out?  If it's available I'd be a buyer!

Tony, I just wanted to say thank you again for this wonderful thread. It has been a life saver, since the actual "instructions" suck... I finished up my Strapping system and it looks great; I'm waiting to paint the armor before I attach it. It's a slow process, waiting for a nice days and doing my best to get it done.

 

With that said, here is that 3d model shoulder piece I made up from your instructions if anyone wants them here they are: https://goo.gl/k1g4WQ

 

it's a bit thicker and doesn't actually need the off shoot piece to be bent.

it's not perfect, all the holes are the same size but it works for me, thought I would share!
