    Jun 27, 2008, 5:39 PM - Pepakura Stormtrooper #1

    As my second foray into Pepakura, I decided to try something REALLY challenging, the iconic Stormtrooper lid.

    For some reason, I can't get Pepakura to keep the actual size of the model so I wind up with a mini version. This one is about half size and is a bit rough because of it.









    At least the mini will show any problems that I can tweak before I print out a full sizer to fiberglass.

    Whattaya think?

    Great! I was thinking of doing this as I worked on my Master Chief Helmet the other day.

    Stunning. Just stunning. Once again you've made me shake my head in disbelief and admiration.

    I refined my model but somehow my sizes got all wonky.

    Can someone give me a measurement for the lens or maybe the square decals in back so that I could scale this with some hope of accuracy?

    Thanks!

    Nice one !

    Not to hijack this thread, but now I can come out of the closet with my PEP work Nowhere near finished (models are there, but no time to pep them), and its just 80g/sqm paper, and about 20% too big, but hey, at least its a start And a test if everything fits.

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]

    What´s the 3D-program you´re developing the trooper in ? I did the Vader in Cinema4D.

    I know that sizeing problem, the best thing is to include a control object of known size, make a test printout of the unfolded model and then resize accordingly. Man, I was totally ****** when I noticed that the correctly scaled first version of the mouth area didn´t fit the eye and head area. But live and learn

    Awesome! That's looking really great! I'd love to see more when you finish it.

    I do my 3D work in Strata. It's stubborn as a mule but it's the mule I know!

    Sadly, Strata won't allow for UV wrapping so all textures are manually applied in Illustrator. This is also the reason there's no stripes on my Trooper lid. I fugure I can add them later, especially if I fiberglass it.

    I tried the control object with the first round but it still came out too small. Pepakura has a menu item for finished dimensions, which I used this time, but it came out too big this time! GAAAARRRRRR!

    I just finished assembling the area around the lens and before I spend the next week assembling something I know is too big, I figured I'd try to resize based on the lens.
