Awesome stuff! Are you confident you can walk around in that boot with out damaging it?

MorbidCharlie - I am "semi" confident haha. I won't really know until I actually suit up in them and walk around. I am going to be putting in a foam insole, which should help distribute some of the weight on the boot, but the way that it's printed and held together, it should hold up fine!

Finished one shoe!

But......

When i started the shin print, I saw a spark from my thermistor, and then my temperature readings stopped......

I have a spare pack of thermistors I'll try to get installed tomorrow so I can get back printing on this thing again.

I love this build and I'm really glad to hear you'll be releasing your 3D models!

Are you making the arm parts as well, or just the boots? It would be awesome to see high detail arm parts made available!

Yeah, I'm having thermistors go after several long prints, too. Finding that keeping extras is a critical!

msleeper - I am doing the arms as well! and the arc reactor harness. I want this build to be everything except for the cloth parts.

Nice prints! Where did you buy your printer, and how much did it cost? What upgrades did you do to it?

Bogleo - I traded a guy on craigslist for my printer, I traded him straight across for a desktop computer. I've upgraded the hotend to an e3d (best decision anyone can make), upgraded the z stage to lm8uu bearings, upgraded the z couplers, switched to an aluminum bed, changed the filament fan for a centrifugal fan, upgraded the stepper motors to .9 degree motors, upgraded the electronics to ramps 1.4, and upgraded the stepper drivers to DRV9225 drivers with 1/32 microstepping.

Got the printer running again with a temporary thermistor setup! Printing the shin now, should be done in the morning!
