    Hey Everyone,

    I decided it was about time I started my own thread on here with all my progress and updates for my Mk III Iron Man files. For anyone who doesn't know me I started work last year on a set of Iron Man pep files, I made it about half way through and then had to take a break to work on my Halloween wedding.

    The wedding was a big success we dressed up as Disneys Beauty and the Beast, we had many Disney nods in our wedding design and wedding party costumes as well as a large haunted house with many nods to the Disneyland haunted house.

    Now that the wedding is finished I've started up work again on the Iron Man files. I'm not going to post any new files until I've finished up the abs and finished tweaking the rest of the files to work perfectly with the abs.

    In the mean time I'll leave some renders of the current suits progress and leave links to the older files in the subsequent post.

    Here's a link to the final zip file containing all of the pep files for my Iron Man Mark 3.

    Hey Congrats on the wedding man, hope it was a blast and you were actually a dancin' fool at the reception.

    Glad you see you're back at it again with the mark III. I think a lot of people have been awaiting you're return

    I'm pretty excited to see this project completed! I've got a few of your parts done, and as soon as I'm finished with my robo Mk VI, I'm going to go back to the Mk III. Perhaps sometime in the next two or three years I'll have both suits done. :lol

    Thanks for everything you've done so far. I wish I had even a tenth of the 3D modeling talent that some of you guys have.

    That really is impressive work. I just started trying to learn 3D modeling and it is way more challenging than I ever expected. What program are you using?

    re: DancinFools Iron Man Mark III Pep File Development

    Thanks for all the well wishes everybody! The progress has been a little slower than I would have liked but I want everything to be perfect.

    I use 3D Studio Max for my modelling, I've been using it since the DOS days before it was called Max. It definitely takes a lot of practice.


    I've almost got the abs all finished. I've modelled each section of the abs as individual pieces so that when constructing you can choose to either glue them altogether as one solid piece or what I was planning when I do my build is to glue them as individual pieces to the undersuit for greater flexibility, they've also been modelled with a bit of extra space so that they can be adjusted to be made bigger or smaller depending on the persons build.

    So I've got the front pretty much all done and just have one more slice of the abs to finish on the back.

    re: DancinFools Iron Man Mark III Pep File Development

    Hey DFool,

    May I suggest that you re-release all files upon completion in a zipped file. More importantly make all the pieces in the suit at same scale. That way people can equally scale each piece to get a desired size. I realize some people need certain pieces larger or smaller aka cod piece, etc.. but at least if the whole suit is scaled the same like ROBO idd then you know how each piece is supposed to be sized to one another. You can also import each pep in designer to the same pep file and build the full suit on screen and save as reference in 3d when getting everything to sit/fit right together.

    Just my two cents. Great work on the suit! Thanks for your contributions to the community.

    re: DancinFools Iron Man Mark III Pep File Development

    I have built the complete upper body so far and i did find that "on me" anyways the chest and back pieces had to be scaled up from 1.525000, to a larger scale, the stock scale just fit me but there was not going to be much room to fit the ab section underneath and be able to move around comfortably. I am about 6 feet and keep shape so it was not like i had a belly getting in the way, like GJ said we are all built different and may need different scaled parts, but if you build this suit as a display every piece fits together perfect and is just amazing, like i have said before this is THE BEST mark 3 out there, killer work DF!

    Weird stock scale for me was 1.525, whoever unfolded parts must have changed the scale. Randy is right at the 6' mark and he scaled it to fit him (fits me as well) so I left it at the stock scale 1.525. ;) By far the best Mark 3 files anywhere.

    GJ, i don't think you need to revoke your entire request, as a zip file with all the pieces would be great!

    Am i correct in saying that there are currently no Dancin_Fool mk 3 shins yet?

    The abs look amazing DF! i've downloaded all your files and then exported them to 3ds to assemble a full model like the images you posted. It looks awesome. I've also done it with Robo's Mk 6.

    I love iron man :) haha

    Shins and feet are next on the list after the abs. Then I'm going to do a final pass on the entire model making a few final detail adjustments. At that point I'll package it all up in a single collection.

    Ok, you answered the question I was going to ask - which was if you were going to update any of the existing files.

    Request: when you do the shins, might you model the calf flaps separately (like you did for the back)? That will make them easier to hinge (in case anyone wants to make them open/close ;) )

    Randy - will you be giving us peps for the gauntlets (hands) and feet as well? Robo's Mk IV files are excellent, but the Mk III is slightly different.

    Ohhooo yeah, I am glad you are back man. Your Mk. III files are hands down the best around. My build has been on hold for a while and just when I am about to start back... you show up. I can't wait to get my hands on that ab file.:love That is the last piece I need. DF, you've been gone way to long buddy.

    Oh, and I'm glad the wedding went well. Did you live up to your name?:lol

    I'm still here, just been busy the last couple of weeks with work. We're getting close to the end of our project.

    I totally lived up to the name, ripped up the dance floor :lol

    I'm almost finished with the abs, did a lot of work on them tonight. I had to do a lot of massaging to get everything fitting together properly, I changed the pelvis quite a bit to get it to match up with the abs better. If you've already built the pelvis it shouldn't be an issue it'll still all fit together it just won't be as tight of a fit.

    I just want to do a few more tweaks before I release the files but it should be in the next couple of days. :thumbsup

    Here's some pics of how it all looks together.

    Itsy Bitsy Suggestion for your DFool?

    I know it was something that others modded and perhaps you've already made this in the upcoming ZIP containing all new stuff... but...

    Can you extend the top of bicep like others have done?

    Just my suggestion. Looks amazing! No criticism intended.

    Yes but more around the shoulder, so your arm will not be visible between the bicep and shoulder piece.

    This is a very crude representation of what I mean. Just extend the top of the bicep. I realize this could be done easily outside of the 3d pep world.. but if he is already tweaking etc.. why not make this subtle change?

    @ DF.
    I have already pepped the pelvis but I think I may have made it too big. So I will wait for the new pelvis and abs. Might as well do it right.

    @ Jordan
    Darn you ,lol. You bring this up after I resined and rondoed my biceps.:lol I didn't even realize the gap that is present. :confused I may be able to work something out with it. :confused

    re: DancinFools Iron Man Mark III Pep File Development

    The model looks spectacular. May I suggest that the shoulders be pulled back a bit? He looks like he is forward-shrugging, and the body posture could be optimized somewhat.

    Also, I don't know if the helmet's eyes are the way they are due to the lowered polygon count. I thought I'd contribute a Photoshop comparison and line overlay analysis. This is not perfect because I don't know what the "camera" distances are.

    Hopefully this can help towards a more accurate look. :thumbsup

    re: DancinFools Iron Man Mark III Pep File Development

    I will definitely being doing hands and feet as well, next up on the block is the calves, probably followed by the feet, then hands, then an overall final pass on all the pieces.

    That was definitely a problem with the bicep, in my max file I've already lengthened it a bit and I'll be doing more work on it when I do my final pass over all the pieces.

    Thanks for the feedback I'll give that a try, I've got a human body model, underneath which I've kind of settled all the pieces on.

    Yeah the head could use a lot of work it was the first thing I modelled on the suit and it was after quite a few year hiatus in modelling. I figure there's so many better helmets out there though it's not worth fixing up right now.



    I've finished work on the abs,spine and pelvis and sent a link off to Bimmer who's going to help with the unfolding. Here's a shot of the finished pieces. Sorry it's taken so long but stuff always comes up in real life.
