Funkster’s 3d printed TLJ trooper

Recommended Posts

So whilst building my FOTS I’m having to wait for a 3d model to be redone.

 

I thought “I wonder how much of a TK I can print in that time?”

 

So here we are.

 

Back in 2015 I was going to do a FOTK but options were limited then, so I moved on.

Decided to come back it now.

 

Found some files that other than the bicep look pretty spot on and started printing furiously.

 

Am using a CR-10s with a E3D volcano and Titan extruder.

 

Started with the torso and in a week have printed

 

Chest

Shoulders

Back/yoke

TD plate

Abs

Ab boxes

Belt boxes

 

Forearms and hand plates are the same as the TS so they’re already done

 

Blaster I’ve already printed using Germain’s files

At the minute it’s just being held together with tape but hoping to get it all printed in the next two weeks and do a full kit up

Looking good so far. What filament are you using? Looking forward to how it turns out. 


Just using Sunlu PLA+

Don’t plan on leaving it in a hot car, so PLA is much easier to print with than PETG or ABS

Here’s where we are so far

that looks great, if you dont mind me asking could you perchance tell me where you got those 3d files. Ive been scouring the net the last few weeks in a feeble attempy to find a decent first order trooper set.

Please keep us posted on this! Very interested in doing this as well since I've been trooping in my 3D printed shoretrooper armor for over a year with no issues.

Will do.

Just doing the last couple of prints for my FO Snowie and then I'll be tackling the lid, which I feel is going to be the hardest part

Any plans yet for strapping, gaskets, etc?


Teresa for the gaskets

Strapping is a way off yet, but we’ve got quite a few FO’s in the UKG so I’ll see how they’ve done it

So far I’ve only reduced the forearms done by 3% all over

The biceps look really roomy so am trying at 95% on the width

I’m 6’2 and skinny, so the rest seems ok so far and is snug

The top of the calf again looks roomy, but the bottom is perfect.

The lid is the same width/length as my TFA standard Anovos, but about 10mm taller which, given I have a stupid giraffe neck hopefully won’t be an issue

Wow this is coming along very nicely.
I’m excited to see this complete and painted up.

First test fitting.

Forgot my boots. Left and right bicep are different sizes (on purpose) so will be going with left for sizing

Butt plate too small

But it’s progress

Nice work, forearms need turning and appear a little large, see how you look once you have gaskets on

Yeah they just hanging there at the minute as was trying not to have anything fall off.

Actually scaled the forearms down from the ones on my Snowie as I’m not wearing a duvet lol
