    Hello everyone. Well long story short, after nearly 4 years and death in the family, I am gonna start building the Bleeding Edge Iron Man armor. It's time I become Iron Man once more:
    Iron-Man-3-Bleeding-Edge-Armor.jpg 10647103_639030362861015_2561722443197241868_n.jpg


    The good news is that I have 3D files from an artist by the name of MARS and he has agreed to share them with me so I can bring this armor to life.

    The bad news is that I have recently gotten word from the artist and he is too busy to finish the lower body. I have made the files that he provided to me available for anyone who wants them. If anyone wants to take a crack at making usable pep files, you're welcome to help us all out.

    Wish there was something I could do...............

    Wanna see this come to life soooo bad! Don't know if you have a 3d printer, but let me know if you need someone to "test print" anything, I'd be more than happy to help out!

    I have a lot of experience working with 3D files - creating pep files and 3D printing - and I love the comic armors. I'd love to help.

    Although I have to be honest - do everyone a favor and just release what you have as-is, so other people can use them. Nobody benefits when people keep everything a secret.

    I have a 3d printer but the problem is that many of the faces of the OBJ file don't have any depth causing the 3d printing software to freak out and print the items oddly. SO I need someone who knows how to add depth to a 3d object so it can be printable.

    The file isn't mine to give away. I have gotten permission from the artist to include others. It's not secret its just private for the time being. after the files have had a chance to be converted to proper pep and/or STL or OBJ files for printing, then those files can be released but at this point, he doesn't want it distributed openly. So I am honoring his wishes. So if you are willing to help out and can make a successful PDO or obj/stl that works, then those new files are the ones that can be shared... not the original master 3d file. Make sense? If you're interested please PM me your email address. Thank you!

    I'm currently remodeling the head because in the original file the parts are all intersecting which would make it impossible to print or pep.

    Sort of. Couldn't get one of the side head pieces to Boolean to the rest of the helmet. Other than that, and the mesh overlap you spoke of, I've done what my limited modeling skill (still very new to it) can.

    I think Blender can add some thickness to it like some of it that I have done before.

    You're using Blender, right? This is almost always a normals problem. Be sure the two parts have their normals facing "outside". And depending on the complexity of the 2 parts, you may have to switch which part is getting booleaned into the other one. So for example, instead of adding the ear pucks to the helmet, add the helmet to the ear puck.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Blender's ability to add a "shell" leaves a lot to be desired. I did it for my Ultron helmet 3D print but I had to clean up a lot of stuff manually. 3D Studio Max does this the easiest, but it's not free. I think either netfabb or MeshLab does it a lot better as well - but again, not in the free versions.

    Yup, tried switching the part getting booleaned. The right side would properly Boolean, but the left side would not. Best I can tell, the helmet is not completely symmetrical, so I can't just attach the right side and then mirror it on the left. : /

    Did you try different boolean methods too? When I have this problem I get it to work using Intersection instead of Addition (I think, I don't have Blender open in front of me to check what it's called).

    This suit looks fantastic. Can't wait to see how it turns out for your build. Would love to build this for myself after you have released the files :thumbsup

    Good luck!

    Ghost Minion sent over some parts he has worked on thus far. I was able to scale up the faceplate to the proper size (I hope so, I used other faceplate measurements as a generic basis of comparison) I was then able to slice the plate in half to fit on my 3d printer. This is what I have thus far.
    1.png 2.png

    I'm still having issues with the rest of the helmet but It's coming along. I really need a PC with tons of ram because my laptop lags at times when I work on some of this.

    Also, for those who are working with me on this know, the files have many intersecting parts. The upper body is no different. The good news is that I figured out a way to separate the parts and have them ready for the next step of making them pepakura friendly! As I break them down, I'll post them on my first post of this thread.

    What is an approximate measurements of a 6' tall guy? I will try to scale it. I just split the chest and collar obj file to 5 to 6 3d printable parts and now trying to figure out the scales for the file. Any ideas??

    Which file are you having issues with? Also, what software ate you using to open it with? The obj is primary 3d software while the pdo is for Pepakura.

    Printed the lower faceplate last night. Sizing looks about right but I won't know till I try the rest of the helmet

    Can you try printing the arc reactor for the file I scaled? To check for the sizing.
    Thanks

    Increase scale 7,489.06% ... thst should bring it closer to the actual size. It may still need some additional scaling but that gets us in the ballpark.

    Just compared the scale I made with Dunbean's Mk4 helmet and aside from larger eyes, the size it pretty darn close.
