Hey DF, thought I would post a picture of the first piece I created using your templates. It's still not "pro", but it looks real good to me especially since this is only the second piece I've ever created, and I'd wear it. This is the under part of the shoulder pieces:
Before I even read XRobots response, I decided to combine some of the pieces together and it worked like a charm. This work is only 4 pieces: the two sides, the top and the front (not including the little detail pieces). The next shoulder I do, I am going to try for two pieces only, the wraparound piece, and the top.
Looks really good, love seeing builds come together!
Hey DF, I want to work on your files but when i tried to do the biceps, it came out really huge with a scale of 24 !
My default printer paper size is A4 (I live in France).
Do you think the problem can come from this?
Hey Guys, I'll have to re-upload the arm, looks like it somehow got out of sync with the rest of the pieces. Probably a typo. I just double checked though exporting my human model the default scale on the rest of the pieces, 1.6395, should be perfect for a 6 foot person.
A scale of 22 might fit a 60 foot person lol.

These are some nice detailed files. THANK YOU!!
Here's the new arm file in pdf

Thanks J0wE, I'll add it up to the first post. I did a quick scan of all the other files and as far as I can see the scale is consistant but if anyone notices a file that's not the default scale of 1.6395 please let me know and I'll update it.
I hadn't seen any unfolds floating around aside from Stealth's partial unfolds of my old files. You should post yours up! I just like seeing people building my model so the more options they have to do that is great!
Made a quick mk3 chest. I'm planning on making the whole suit when I have time to go along with my mk3 helmet.
not finished yet but it's getting there.
I'm having a hell of a time scaling these things. I've looked through numerous threads and pictures and I can't quite get how big these pieces are supposed to be and how they are supposed to "sit" on me.
I've taken measurements of myself, but I'm still having problems. How do you all do it? Shotgun peps out until you find one that fits?
How tall are you?
The default scale is 1.6395 for 6'. So if you take 1.6395 and divide by 6' it gives you a ratio of 0.27325. Multiply your height by that number and that is the scale you should use on all of my pieces.
Edit: Nevermind... I'm being dense. I figured it out. Thanks again!

That may be it. The forearm just seems big on me, but it does seem to fit length wise.
Okay, I'm starting to cut the foam pieces now that I have the size down. Have a quick question about the abs. Looking at the model, I have a relative idea of how it's supposed to go, but I just want to verify that the smaller ab pieces with the slots somehow bend into the larger pieces when being glued/attached?
Hmm, the IronManMk3_Abs.pdo contains the front abs and the back and each piece should fit up against each other. The IronManMk3_SideAbs are the side pieces which in the front should fit up against the front abs and overlap in the back.... It's hard to explain in words, it'll probably make sense as you're building, I'll dig up a picture of what it should look like all together.
*Edit* Here's what it should look like from the front.
