TheSweatshop's Rogue One TK Stormtrooper


Recommended Posts

Hello There!

xZw3EL9.jpeg

I've been lurking awhile now but just got tickets to Star Wars Celebration in Japan so it's time to start my build with a hard deadline. I bought a kit from 850Armorworks ages ago, but since lurking for so long, I've decided to try to achieve a higher level of accuracy and put my 3D printers to work.

Can't wait to see how it goes.

I'm currently building an 850 Armorworks kit for my wife.

It is a bit different than my OTTK, but so far it is going well.

We still need to source the soft goods, so I'll take a peak at what you have there.

Hello there!!!

 

Which Mr Paul files are you printing? The shins and forearms I assume? I've also got that set and have been neglecting my printers.

 

The Akira Yuming set on cgtrader is a nice R1 armor set also. At least one has been approved. Sometimes nice to mix and match. I have 3 R1 file sets counting the Galactic Armory... heh. I hoard.

 

Good luck with the build! Looking forward to following.

I have Yuming and PewPewCrafts as well. I'm also looking at Alain Rivard / SciFiHeaven's Files via @DavidF's build. I'll also probably buy Galactic Armory's set as I'm a fan anyways. 

 

Anyways, I'm starting with Mr. Paul's Abdomen, I'll also likely use his arms and shins.

Made some progress.

 

I’ve got a job out of state but I brought my printer along and have afternoons off to work on my armor. I kept the printer running all week.

I’m printing in ABS. I know some people have difficulty printing ABS due to warping but so far with my enclosure I’ve been having success. My printer is a Prusa MK2.5S with a IKEA enclosure. I print at .15mm layer height but I also have been taking advantage of Variable Layer Height to squeeze out detail and print time. I’m printing at 15% infill and it seems super light but pretty damn durable and flexes well. I glued them up with an ABS juice of ABS and acetone, mostly being acetone but I’m adding more ABS supports to see what mixture works best.

The actual alignment went spectacular to my surprise. I also did a test fit.

Only the outside edges of the belt tabs were having trouble but I bowed the abs by using filament boxes as spacers in the back gap and it made the difference to get those last tabs to set up.

Currently printing Nico’s Modified Helmet from @TKModder421 so stay tuned for that glue up as well.

Tell me more about this IKEA enclosure? I've been looking for something for my printers as I'd love to try ABS or ASA. Best I can do is PETG currently and that is if my bed heater is feeling cooperative.

Historically it's been a stack of two IKEA LACK tables. They fit Prusa and clone printers very nicely.

Scroll to the end.

 

I used to have one of these and it worked okay. You want a paver stone to set your printer on or you get a ton of resonance and noise.

That’s exactly what I’m running including paver stone.

 

Also planning and getting Bambulabs P1S, will likely run both since my prusa has been treating me kind lately. Still kinda holding out for a possible new Bambulabs printer announcement.

Your Prusa is kicking buttplate! Definitely nice to have a couple/few printers and not retire that good boy.

 

The abs look great. That's a fantastic project for time away from home.

Excited to see this armor come together!
