    Hey all,
    I am going to start working on a new Iron Man costum with the pepakura method and i was wondering if anyone have an (Iron Man Mark III pepakura full armor) or know someone how have it please?

    PS. when i say full armor i mean not all the pics in different files but all the parts in one file or it can be just the left or right part

    Regards,
    Ziffa27

    If you search the forum threads you can find a full zip Mark 3 pep suit. There are a lot of new and old builds here, i advise you that is better to do a research before you begin the work because there are a lot of considerations you have to understand like scale and materials you may have. Look the foam builds too, its very udeful.
    GL!

    Hey TAZNITBR,
    Thanks a lot for your reply and advice.
    I did a search but i didn't find one how i want it.
    When i said a full armor is something like the image below with all the pieces together in one file but a mark 3.

    I understood bro, i do not know if it really exists because i didn´t find for myself too. As matter of the fact there is a tutorial in youtube that shows an easy way to scale all the armor with the full IM set. It would be great to simplify the process.

    There's no such thing as a massive one armor file for multiple reasons:

    1. All pieces are exported to be easily unfolded .. once unfolded (or not), you can always reimport a pdo file inside the current pdo ans so on and so forth, but that would mean a HUGE file with all parts inside .. quite desastrous if you ask me!

    DF already had a full arm which is big enough if you ask me but super useful for scaling purposes, which I'm guessing was his intention.

    2. There's so many other files out there, like Zabana's excellent foot and glove files, that you need to know about them before begining to pep .. KNOW what's out there and learn the diff, you'll save a lot of time.

    Personnaly, I think the best combination for MK3 is

    - Whole armor (DancingFools)
    - Foot and Glove (Zabana)
    - Calf (Mine) (well .. I'm a little biased here)

    :D

    Hi Bigturc,
    Thanks for your replay.

    1. I know it will be huge but i would like to use it for scaling
    Do you know a link for DF full arm?

    2. Yes i did some research to find the best pep for me
    I think you are right i like (DancingFools) & (Zabana) but i need to checkout your ;P do you have a link?

    Basically i need the full armor because i think it is good for scaling

    Scaling doesn't work that way unless your body is in exact proportion to the 3d model. You need to scale the pieces separately, the way they were intended, in order for everything to fit you properly.

    Hey Gossett,

    I know it is not to work this way but if i have all the piece i can have an approximately size of the hole body for example it will be 0.9230 and than i can fine tune each piece separately +/- depending on my size.

    That will not work with different files or even like files, unless they were all modeled at the same time they will import on a different section or scale.

    Exactly,
    I would like files that have been done by the same person or at the same time.
    All i need this is to have an approximately of each pieces ratio percentage and than i can change/edit each pieces individual but i will know that it have to be for example 0.9235 the %
    Understand what i mean Finhead?

    You don't need a full model for that. If you use all of DF's files they are all the same scale. Find what works for you on each piece, it's as simple as that. An over all scale is nice but each section/piece will need to be tweaked as you go. The defualt scale is for someone right around 6' with an average build. Stealths scale is for someone around 5'7" ish which I think it 1.42 or something like that (you'll have to download one of his modded files) So that gives you a range to work with and should cover what you need. Just remember measure the length of what your trying to fit and scale it for that piece, it works fairly well for most pieces.

    Also use the measurement tool in Pep Designer .. it's super useful and I'm using it a lot .. I find it way easier and accurate vs the paper and rule method.

    It's in the 2d menu or right click context menu in the 2D viewport.

    You couldn't find it? Did you look? It's right there at the bottom of the edit mode, about as easy to find as it gets first tab on the 2Dmenu.

    It's part of Designer 3.

    As I previously said, it's also in the right context menu. A little exploration goes a long way guys! ;) Read the Pepakura threads around, that's the best way to learn things on your tools!

    Ziffa, check the Tamasoft web site .. it's really all there:

    Update History
    Ver.3.1.0

    - A menu to export the unfolded pattern separately into multiple DXF files was added as [File]-[Export]-[Vector Format]-[Multi-Files DXF].
    -The part which is selected on the 2D Window is highlighted on the 3D Window.
    -A menu to check the overlapping parts was added as [2D Menu]-[Check Overlapping Parts].
    -Double-clicking an edge on the 3D Window before unfolding selects multiple edges on the edge-ring at a time.
    -An edit mode on which measures the distance between two points was added as [2D Menu]-[Edit Mode]-[Measure Distance between Two Points].

    Hijacking this thread for a moment, I'm a total newbie to this sort of thing so please bear with me ladies and gents.

    I've just begun the initial phases of constructing my own MK III, I have the pep files I need but any tips anyone can spare about what sorts of materials to use and how to scale the drawings and such to my body once I print the files off. Any help, or pointing me towards help, would be infinitely appreciated.
