    I have the anime suit files if you are interest send me your email and I will send it to you. The files are not scaled or unfolded and are only of the armor pieces.

    Here is my 4shared folder with the guyver files in it. There are two seperate suit files. The grouped set is the set that I edited myself. I took out all the non armor sections and left only the armor sections for easier pepping but left them in groups. The seperate pieces are pieces I found off the internet. All files have not been scaled or unfolded so you can do it yourself or who ever feels like unfolding them and sharing, be my guest.

    Here's my foam-at-once pep file [​IMG]. I have in mind to build an entire suit, so I did not spread it into several files.
    1. print your sheets
    2. tape your sheets
    3. cut your paper masks
    4. cut your foam from the masks
    5. you get less and bigger foam parts, you save gluing time, and less junctions means nicer curves an inproved "anti-aliasing".


    On this scale chart you can see tree columns : expanded pep view size / armor size (inc horn) / your size.

    [​IMG]

    Have fun, and post your WIP.

    It refers to the final size of your suit, depending of your own size.
    I'm 5'10" ie 1m78, once my Guyver suit on I'll be 1m96, and since the suit view is exploded in pepakura I have to scale before printing it so it virtualy reaches 2m21.

    I'll work on it quite soon, I hope.

    Hey everyone.. sorry i have not posted anything on here since i started the thread but i just had a baby and he has been taking up most of my time :)... but i managed to get some time to pep up the helmet and just gave it 2 coats of fiber glass resin..

    i was wondering in anyone could help me out?? im looking for more of a movie guyver look then the anime..soo i think im am going to use scupting putty to make the helmet look more organic and give it more detail.. does anyone ever use scupting putty and do you think it will work on the helmet??

    Does anyone have the Guyver "helmet" pep file they can share? I've noticed in the Blackkaos's pep files the helmet is not included, just the helmet add-ons.

    Check out bioweapons.com , and also Error's build thread for the Witchblade gauntlet. Hot glue can be used to make some pretty impressive things, and is the perfect "tendon" looking match to the live action suit in the first post.

    That being said, I kinda want to do a helmet myself. Looks pretty badass!

    Sorry I'm still a bit confused about how exactly we go about scaling the pep file. Am I meant to enter one of those numbers into the scale factor, if so which one?

    when you goto the 2d menu and scale file. you have to pic what dimension you are going to scale. i normally go by the height, but for the guyver having the antenna, i had to use the width. depending on what you are scaling depends on what dimension you scale. limbs are always the height. body is the width.

    yeah I get that part but I'm wondering what the values on the image which comes with the file actually represent. Are they numbers we can enter? I've worked with pepakura before but with the object being exploded I'm not sure how I'm going ot accurately scale this and it's hard enough normally.

    the "exploded" is only showing how the parts are separated. it has no effect.
    you can see in the pic there are only 3 dimensions. you can only enter number in one spot. the program automatically adjusts the other 2 spots. dont worry about the scale below it. it only works if your making something to scale and all the parts were equally made.
    im not sure if im missing something for what your asking. if not, look up "the hero tutorials" on youtube. i think stealth has something.

    this image here. What do the numbers actually mean in pepakura. I've tried entering them into the various values but the measurment is always wrong, how are they meant to help me if at all?

    apparently they mean..
    "On this scale chart you can see tree columns : expanded pep view size / armor size (inc horn) / your size."
    but I don't get how any of that relates to pep.

    those mean nothing in pep. those are vectors for the 3d design. that pic was just to show the model. thats it. toss it out.

    get the already parted model from him or the guy on the 405th and start measuring your body in millimetres
    height for bicep, arm, thigh, shin
    width for head, stomach, chest

    In fact, these three columns refer to the final size of your suit, depending of your own size. I might have writen it onto the picture, not above : "On this scale chart you can see tree columns : expanded pep view size / armor size (inc horn) / your size."


    The first column is the height you must enter in PepDesigner, depending of your own height from the third column. I'm about 5'10" so I entered 2200 as default value (2200mm is something near 221.121827cm). Once my Guyver suit on I'll be 1m96 (middle column), and since the suit view is indeed exploded in pepakura (larger than when worn) I have to scale before printing so it "virtualy" reaches 2m21 (first column).

    If you're 5'9", for exemple, you can enter a height of 2180 (217.962944) that matches your 5'9". In this case you'll get an indicative scale factor around 400.

    The middle column is only here to estimate your real height once you'll wear the suit. Y'ou'll may have to bend down while passing trough a door if you don't want your horn to be damaged.

    BlackKaos have posted all the spare parts on first page, and I still have somewhere the entire assembled unfolded model file, if it can help. You can have a look at Lusidious's thread, he is building the same.


    Do not hesitate if you're still in the doubt.

    cheers that what i needed to know.
    I just wanted to ask about the helmet though. I've been measuring up the various pieces using the measure distance between two points and most of it seems right but the helmet seems very small. I printed off a paper version and just stuck it together with tape to try and get an idea of how it might look but I think I'm going to need to make it bigger. Is this something anyone else has found as well?

    Probably did the original modeler not aimed to put some day a real human in his character, even if body proportions seem to match fairly well. Anyway you can always pick up an other and maybe more accurate helmet somewhere around here, just like kryptoboy1 did.

    i think they guyver is more of an advanced thing to make. it needs to be completely round. practice practice practice
