Duomaxwell1017's Adventure into 3D printing starting with Iron Man Mark XXXIX Starboost

After years of saving Christmas and birthday money, I was finally able to save up enough money to buy my first 3d printer. I found a great deal on Amazon for a CR-10s V2. CR-10S V2. I've always wanted to get a 3D printer since my best friend Barrett Pote told me about them. I wish he was still here (died unexpectedly April 12, 2017). I know he would be excited that I was able to get a 3D printer. So far for the printer I've upgraded the build plate with a new build plate from th3d.com, and I also updated to a metal feeder because the plastic one broke. I am still learning how to position the pieces before I print them. I've had multiple times where the print just failed. I also had 3-4 times where I ran out of filament, and I has to reprint the pieces. I am using Hatchbox 1.75mm PLA filament.

So the first Iron Man suit I am going to 3D print is going to be the Iron Man Mark XXXIX Starboost. I was able to get the files for Starboost for free from Starboost files.
so after messing around with the files in Cura and Meshmixer. So far I was able to print out

Right Palm
Both Hand toppers
Both forearms
Both Biceps
Both shoulders
Left elbow(need to resize and reprint)
I have about 50% of the chest and backpack done.

I have many other pieces scaled and ready to print.

This thread will be pretty pic heavy, with a few vids here and there.

Iron Man Mark XXXIX Starboost Shoulder. Turned out amazing. The supports were a pain to remove.

Iron Man Mark XXXIX Starboost Chest plate, failed print. I had multiple support failures. I tried using cardstock to reinforce the supports, but it ended up cause layer lines. Need to figure out a way to reprint this and have the hexagons sharp and clean.

Iron Man Mark XXXIX Starboost chest arm hole. Probably will have to cut this piece so my arm can fit through.
