    Mark VII Pepakura files (Mark 7, Mk 7, whatever)

    *************************** UPDATE Sept 10, 2014 ***************************

    Sorry about the files guys, I accidentally cut them out of my skydrive/onedrive folder on my computer and when I put them back in it changed all the links. So I have to go back and update all the links in this thread and every other thread I have written. What a pain, especially since I don't have time for this. :p I have updated the links in this post.


    I will continue to share pictures of the V2 Mk VII files I have been working on. These may not be the final draft of the parts but they will all be parts that I have reworked and, for the most part, they are done. I hope you enjoy. Subscribe to my thread so you don't miss out on any of them - I won't be posting these pics here in the first post.

    Again, I just wanted to thank all of you for watching my thread and sharing your input and your builds. I hope to continue seeing more pictures and updates on everyone that is using my files for your suits. It means a lot for me to get to see these files becoming real suits.

    Just a note, if you are interested in a real pepakura build and you like to have more accurate pepakura files then you might want to wait till I post the 'remastered' Version 2 Mk VII files.


    ****************************** Terms of Use ******************************

    I am sharing these files as pepakura files and foam templates and the program is intended for 'paper art' (meaning of pepakura for those who may not know). However, since there is some confusion on the subject, it won't hurt to clarify my standing on the issue. So here it is:

    As stated above, I am sharing these PDO files for use building paper craft models and/or to use them as foam templates to build foam parts. My files are now password protected. Unfortunately, without the password you cannot scale the files which is imperative for a build like this. I no longer have the time it takes to share the password via PM but because I still want everyone to be able to enjoy these files and to be able to build their very own Mk VII I am going to post the Password here.

    The Password is: Timeless

    However, by sharing the password I am taking a risk that someone could take advantage of my generosity. Therefore I want to make it clear that nobody should use these PDO files to take the 3D models that I have worked so very hard on. If you would like the 3D model for something then please PM me for special permission. Thank you.

    ------------------- VIPs that have been helping me with this project -------------------

    I have decided that everyone here in the VIP section will get 2 months early access to my Mark VII Version 2 files when they are ready. They are still a ways off but I wanted to let you all know so you have something to look forward to. I will send out PMs to all the VIPs when the Version 2 files are available.

    By now most everyone visiting this site has seen the new Mark VII but in case you haven't then here it is:

    Tips for building pepakura files:

    Scaling can be difficult. There are many different methods out there. My suggestion would be to find your default scale. This can be guessed based on your height.

    5'3" - 5'4" try in between scale 22 - 23
    5'5" - 5'6" try in between scale 23 - 23.5
    5'7" - 5'8" try in between scale 23.5 - 24
    5'9" - 5'10" try in between scale 24 - 24.5
    5'11" - 6' try in between scale 24.5 - 25.5
    6'1" - 6'2" try in between scale 26 - 26.5
    6'3" - 6'4" try in between scale 26.5 - 27.5

    Then use the measurement tool (right-click in the 2D window and select it from the pop-up menu) to take specific measurements between any two points/vertices on the 3D model. This allows you to check the diameter of the openings that your arms and legs need to fit through as well as being able to check certain lengths and any other measurement that you think might be helpful. Just compare these measurements to measurements that you take of your own body parts.

    Measure your body part in several key areas and then use the measurement tool in the pep designer program to measure the 3D model and compare the measurements to each other. Then if you need to make adjustments, change the scale factor until the measurements of the 3D model match up to what you want. Then print it out and assemble it. At that point it should fit but if not then you should only have to make it one more time. If it doesn't fit then you check measurements of the part you made to the measurements of the 3D model to see if it was right on or if it is off a little. See how much bigger/smaller it needs to be then adjust the scale accordingly. Hope that helps, Good Luck.

    Tips for using the Pepakura software:

    As with any software program there are little quirks that you need to work around. The Pepakura software has a bit more than most. One of the most common issues is from new users that can't seem to open the password protected files. Whenever they try to type the password it either enters a glitch loop or the file just opens in Pep Viewer and not Pep Designer. This is simply because on the password pop-up the default button is set to 'Open in Pep Viewer'. With most programs you can type the password and then hit the Enter key. This is because the typical default button is usually set to 'Next' or 'Ok'. In this case, if you hit the Enter key after typing the password then it will ignore the password and try to open the file in Pep Viewer. The glitch loop I mentioned happens if you do not have Pep Viewer installed. All you have to do is type the password and manually click on the 'Ok' button.

    Pepakura Designer 3 Tips

    Version 1 Mk VII Files:

    Darkside501st's Iron Man Mk VII V1.0 Pepakura Files
    All parts have now been set to a scale of 23. A password is now required to view the files in Pep Designer. The password is listed earlier in this post in the 'Terms of Use' section. Files for pepakura costumes and foam templates are still free.

    You will find the Iron Man Mk VII V1.0 Handplate, Lower Forearm, Upper Forearm, Elbow, Biceps, Shoulder Bells, Boots, Shin, Hip Pod, Thigh - unfolded by IronLeoMan, Cod - unfolded by ironmaided, Abs/Midsection - unfolded by IronLeoMan, Chest - unfolded by IronLeoMan, Back - unfolded by IronLeoMan, and I also made a 2nd back file with lower flaps and more detail - unfolded by IronLeoMan.

    ironmaided also converted all my files so far into foam templates so I uploaded them to my onedrive. The Chest and Abs/Midsection files were modified into foam templates by jackieisrockin.

    Darkside501st's Iron Man Mark VII V1.0 Foam Templates
    All parts have now been set to a scale of 23. A password is now required to view the files in Pep Designer. The password is listed earlier in this post in the 'Terms of Use' section. Files for pepakura costumes and foam templates are still free.

    Check out my version 1 files. The new and improved version 2 files are under construction.

    Special Notes:

    - I never made a V1 Neck, Brace, or Collar Plate. The Collar Plate is easy enough to scratch build but I would recommend using Robo3687's Brace and Neck files until my V2 Mk VII is done.

    - Supports for the Shoulders are on a separate pepakura file. Be sure to get that too.

    - There are two files for the Abs/Midsection. The first one is for final measurements of the assembled midsection for obtaining the correct scale. The second one is the file that was actually unfolded - apply the scale that fits you to this file.

    - The original version 1 Back file is missing the supports. You can find the back supports in the new Back 2 file.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Version2 Mk VII FIle(s):

    I will be doing things a little differently with the V2 files. They will all be protected. You won't be able to open the V2 files in Pepakura Designer. You will only be able to open these files in Pepakura Viewer. This means that you will not be able to scale the files yourselves. I still want you guys/gals to be able to build a suit that fits you so I will be sharing several different scales of each file. If you need a different scale then what has already been uploaded just put a post in this thread and I will make that scale, upload it to my onedrive, and share it with everyone. I will only make changes in certain increments depending on the part. Details will be posted under each part.

    Note: The scale of each part is listed at the beginning of the file name.

    Pepakura Files:
    Mk VII Helmet - original model by Sharkmark - scaled in .01 increments on request - Also, here is the new Mk VII Tester Helmet file.

    Foam Templates by JFcustom:
    Foam Mk VII Helmet - original model by Sharkmark - scaled in .01 increments on request

    The helmet file is scaled the same as the Sharkmark Mk IV/VI helmet. It is generally agreed that a scale of .95 will work for head circumferences of 22-23 inches. Use the tester helmet to find out what scale works best for you then check to see if it is already on the skydrive before you post a request.

    Tips:
    I am trying to make these files as easy to build as possible so you will notice that the helmet is not an exact model of the real deal. I got a lot of complaints about all the grooves in the V1 files. Also, from talking to the top guys here on the RPF that have taken pep files and turned them into master pieces I have learned that most of them add the grooves in later. They either use a dremmel tool, hand tools, or wire to add the grooves in during the finishing stages. So I am building the V2 files without grooves, however I am including the location of the grooves mapped onto the pep file. You will see them printed out as thick dark lines. You should build the pep file then resin it and fiberglass the inside. After that you can dremmel the groove or add it into the bondo in that stage. 'How will you know where to make the groove after you cover the black lines with Bondo', you say. All you need to do is print out that part of the model on paper and overlay that onto your smoothed over armor part and use it as a template for drawing the line again.

    Tips for Building the Helmet:
    If you look at some of the reference images of the Mk VII helmet you may notice that the 'lip' on the lower jaw is a separate section and looks like it sticks out a little more than the jaw itself. If you want to do this I would suggest either doing it with the body filler (Bondo) or cutting out some strips of cardstock and putting them between the tabs on the jaw and the lip. A couple layers should be sufficient. This will give it the protrusion you see in some images of the actual helmet.

    You may notice that I simplified the eyes. I think the inner eye detail will be easier to make using sintra, cardboard, or foam.

    Also, the helmet is meant to fit snug around your head. You should not be able to slip it on. Most builders follow what they did in the movies and make part of the back of the helmet removable.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    More Pieces to the Puzzle:

    I want to thank Zabana for an awesome hand file. They are not easy to assemble but the detail is great.

    Zabana's Iron Man hand files

    The first time I made it I had a heck of a time getting into the little grooves around the repulsor. Also, there was no clear way to attach the top of the hand to the bottom. So, I modified Zabana's Hand file to take care of these issues. I made the repulsor a separate piece so that you can get in there and work on the inside of the palm without it getting in the way. I also took Surreal Studio's idea on how to separate the top and the bottom hands and incorporated that into the model. This will result in stronger bridges in between the fingers. I have uploaded it to the onedrive. Here are a couple pics:

    [​IMG][​IMG] Zabana's Hand modified by Darkside501st

    Zabana also made a really good Mk IV/VI boot file. I did modify it slightly to give more room in the toes and so that you can assemble it like Robo3687's boot. Check the link for my file.

    [​IMG] Zabana's Boot modified by Darkside501st

    However Zabana's boot is much less complicated so check it out too:
    Boot by Zabana

    Or you could use Robo3687's Boot. I would also recommend using Robo3687's Brace and Neck files until my V2 Mk VII is done.
    Robo3687's Iron Man Pep Files

    Also, I have recommend using Sharkmark's Helmet for a long while even though there appears to be some slight differences between the new Mk VII helmet and the previous versions. However, I have now modified his helmet to turn it into the Mk VII version. That is posted above. Here is the original Mk VI version:

    I added supports to the first two pieces and I just uploaded the Mk VII Upper Forearm. It is under the same link on the first post.

    I need to go back and add supports to that one, though.

    I can do it for ya if you want. May take some time though cuz I'm not familiar with these new parts as I am with the Mark III.

    EDIT:

    Was easier than I thought. I made it as simple as I could and I scaled it the same as my Mark III foam suit. The lower forearm is about 10 inches, and if you put the upper and lower forearms together they should be about 12-13 inches.

    Link to download http://up.ht/zZ8PgO

    Fun Fact: The length from your wrist to your elbow is the same as your foot size. I'm a size 12 and so I know my forearm is 12 inches.

    Royal,
    That is fine with me. I wasn't planning on doing a foam edit myself. If you would though, please make sure my name stays on the files for credit and modified by you. Thanks.

    ps - I tried to download your files, the download started but I never got any data. The links work but I could not download any info. It just hung there forever. Then I canceled the first one and tried downloading again and it was successful.

    On another note:
    The Upper forearm is getting some supports here shortly so check the link on the first page in a little while. Then I will start on the biceps.

    Okay I uploaded them to media fire instead. Hope it works.

    Foam Mark 7 Forearms.zip
    It's in a zip folder so you have to extract the files from it

    I left your name in each individual file

    Thanks Royal.

    The biceps should be up today... I will post back later when I get it done.

    I am going to make most of the parts symmetrical, as many as I can. Parts like the biceps might need to be trimmed on the inside after they have been pepped or cast to allow for more clearance/maneuverability. Making it symmetrical will be better for anyone that wants to make a mold and start casting the pieces. All the arm pieces are symmetrical, unfortunately the legs are not.

    Ok, well I had a long day of modeling the biceps and elbow. I was having some difficulty getting these two parts and the upper forearm to fit together properly at the swivel joint. They are both done now but I won't be uploading them today after all. I still have to unfold them. They will probably be up tomorrow. Then I will be taking a brake over the weekend... my hand is cramping up a little from using the mouse so much, lol. :unsure

    Thanks for all the kind words... hopefully you all will find some good use for them. Make sure to post pics of your builds in this thread. We want to see what these files can do.

    are you going to do the helm? or should we just use one of the ones already out there?

    There is not that much difference between the helmet on the Mk VII and the others. I do plan on modifying it but it will probably be the last thing I do.

    Check back later today for the biceps and elbow. I just have to unfold them and then they will be up.

    Ok guys, Sorry about the delays. I was supper busy on Friday and didn't get as much time to unfold the biceps and elbow as I would have liked. Not to mention, My computer downloaded a windows update and did an auto-restart and I lost about an hours worth of work cause I didn't save the file before I stepped away from the computer. :unsure But, I just uploaded the biceps and elbow. Check the link on the first post. Hope you enjoy.

    I will be taking a little break over the weekend and then I will be doing the shoulder bells and legs next.

    ps - nice update on the progress you guys are making. If you start a new thread with your build then post a link here so people can check it out.

    It's really thin craft foam then I plasti-dip it. I did a mk5 for NYCC with just the foam no plasti-dip and it kinda fell apart but it really strengthens the foam

    Hey, I might be missing something, sorry if I am, but the lower forearm seems small. darkside501st did you make it to go from the wrist bone to the back of the elbow like this picture?

    [​IMG]

    The scale on the pep file seems small at 8.5 inches. Again, I could be missing something. Great work so far. Just went to print the file and was having a little trouble figuring it out.

    well did you scale it to your arm or did you just print out what he scaled it at. 8.5 inches is pretty small

    Yeah, my forearm is 11 inches, I was just making sure that was the intended measurement. In cHARMcityXero's pic it looked like he used the upper forearm piece to extend past the lower forearm piece and it was throwing me off.

    Everyone is going to be different. I am only 5' 5" so my forearms are not 11" long. Plus, this doesn't go all the way down to the wrist bone based on all my reference images not just the figurine.

    You will have to adjust the scale to fit your body. You can also adjust the page margins to 8mm which will work for most printers. I have the margins set to 13mm top and bottom and 11mm on the sides for my Cameo cutting machine.

    These files are going to be pretty much the same scale as Robo3687's files. So, the default scale on his files was 25, I was setting mine at 21. If you change it to 25 then they will print up at about the same size as his files.
