    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    HALLOWEEN-FINISHED PHOTOS IN THIS POST (95% FINISHED) I have been busy and the rest of the footage is on my camera still and I left my data cable at a friends house, so no new videos yet :(. However, I do have an update for y'all. The copper paint is actually really fragile and since it...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    Sanding was arduous at best and problematic at worst since it dissolved (wet sanding) some of the wood filler since I apparently didn't let it set up for long enough. This only was at the base of the helmet in the rear so it didn't really matter and I smoothed it out a bunch just without the...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    PAINTING PHOTOS IN THIS POST (90% FINISHED) Hi! I got it painted and clear-coated. Here are the results. It is currently curing at home, and I will be redressing some of the areas. I had paint run on the mask in the upper corner because I got a bit carried away with trying to mask a bit of lint...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    Yeah, FDM is trademarked by Stratasys so the 3DP community a long time ago came up with FFF to replace it

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    SANDING PREP PHOTOS IN THIS POST (40% FINISHED) I've got a bunch of wood filler chooching in on some of the parts... It's dried and I sanded it on the jawline piece, and it turned out really well! I'm very happy with it. Since the wood filler is clay-based (I'm guessing it is by the smell)...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    I was tempted on an Elegoo Mars, but for my engineering work a FFF based machine is much more appropriate...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    FITMENT TEST + BASIC SANDING PHOTOS IN THIS POST (20% FINISHED) I've got everything printed! These photos are from last night. Today I've spent a good two hours or so sanding the parts down after removing the hot glue, but I am only about 3/4 the way done with sanding. I switched rolls of PLA...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    It is 3D Solutech PLA. Normally I would use PETG because I feel it is superior in almost every way, and I have a lot of print time with PETG, but I got a lot of PLA for Christmas and PETG does not get along well with PEI buildplates. I got a sample of Prusament PLA with my printer when I ordered...

    Iron Man Mk. CXVI 3D Print Build

    I am making a new Iron Man Suit that I have dubbed the Mark CXVI, or Mark "116", because I am probably going to source parts from many different "Marks" and probably make my own, so it's not one cohesive suit but an amalgam. I've made a Mk. 3 helmet in the past, it turned out pretty good but was...

    Rust-Oleum Clear Coat troubles?

    I'd post pictures but the site doesn't work as well on mobile! But yeah I sanded it back down ( it fell off like goop) and I painted VERY thin and I've been letting it dry for a day or two now.

    Rust-Oleum Clear Coat troubles?

    So the clear coat which I applied over top of a hefty few layers of spray paint, all rust-oleum, completely ruined it. It formed weird waves with the paint and all. As such, I need a new protective coat, what do you recommend(Not expensive and easy to obtain). Would Spray Lacquer be good?

    My Take on an Iron Man Mk. 46 3D Print. [WIP]

    Gathering multiple files from different places on RPF, I've finally conjured up the files to build an Iron Man Mk. 46 Suit! Now I've only got the fingers done, and I'll post a video about them every so often, but I plan on having at least an arm and a helmet done by the end of September, and for...
