Not really. Just not done.
I'd also would rather share it with everyone on my own personal build than privately with a select few.

These are very good news for all of us that are working in the proyect
The best way to make the center hinge system work would be to use a reduction gear set. Gearing would be the only way to make this work, especially if you use a servo. With enough gears in it you could make it thin enough to fit in the helmet. Also the arms would have to pivot horizontally to facilitate smoother movement.
Otherwise a normal motor would work with switches on the top and bottom to make the motor stop at each end. I'll draw up some concepts that I've been thinking about for a few months now and try and post tomorrow.
I kindly disagree with you.
I've tested everything now with scratch built test parts and the results were more than satisfactory

Looks real (!) smooth, wich pep files did u use?
@ the hinge postings
Couldn't a cd-bracket motor + gearings work nice?
HiTec makes a mini servo (33mm x 18mm x 33mm) that'll put out 55 (at 4.8v) - 67 (at 6v) oz/in of torque, which should be enough to lift any face plate from the center. The depth may be close in your helmet, but if the face plate weighs less, you could even manage a smaller, weaker (less torque) servo, micro servers go down to 1cm in width or less.
Building your own gearing system is just asking for trouble, there are servos out there small enough and strong enough for almost any application.
hola Zabana como te va, primero que todo felicitarte por tu magnifico trabajo .
me gustaria saber si puedes ayudarme con algunas preguntas
intente de hacer mi casco ironman pero tengo un problema con la medida para que entre en mi cabeza con el pepakura, y que si lo puedo hacer a mi escala que no quede tan deforme de acuerdo a mi cuerpo, cual fue la medida que utilizaste tu en tu casco?, y que modelo de casco por que he encontrado un monton y quiero hacer ese modelo que tu hiciste, disculpa si fueron tantas preguntas pero la verdad es que es la primera persona que hace esto y habla espanhol
felicitaciones pro el magnifico trabajo
Some members requested to me to not speak in spanish, so I´ll answer you the same by PM just in case...
My helmet it´s not pepakura´s one, it´s modeled in clay over a base of my head.
For your helmet, two ways I use. Trial and error or export the model, open it with any 3d/cad program and take measurements and calculate new scale.
I love the way the chin system works on the helmet.
muchas gracias zabana te pasaste
What kind of servos did you use? In other words, what was their lift capacity?
Long time since last update
I was pretty busy at work and I´ve got problems with my back so I couldn´t do a lot...
But now I´m proud to tell that I´ve finish my voice recognition system to manage the suit once it´s done, now I´ve got working the faceplate opening and lightning up the eyes. I´ve remodeled again the opening system to be easier for the servos and change them to a 10Kilos new ones
I was working also in the legs. I take Dancin_fool´s thigh and I´ve modified to have a hinge system like I did with the arm. Also I´ve designed a calf and a complete boot.
There also good news for you. After thinking a lot I´ve decided to freely release all my pep files for one reason over all of them, if I´m using another people file all of you must have the chance to use mines.
Without delay I´m proud to show you my last progress:
Old hinge system

Nice job carnt wait to see the final product
Just Incredible!!!!! I would really love to hear more about your voice activation system, I have wanted to do something like that for a long time but have basic knowledge of this kind of thing at best.
good idea about voice control; cheaper then my idea of using a emotiv headset. Nice job on the pep. Keep up the great work.
