i dont know if your already going to do this but i made a mini gun ammo pack and i found it lost integrity from movement so i added x4 struts inside they were made from 10mm EVA foam 3x10mm lengths stuck together, they add minuscule weigh but stopped my back pack from moving or squashing ( excuse my terrible paint shop picture lol )

hi gothic. i am too going to add some internal supports, most likely i shall print, whenever i get my 3d printer fixed, some tube holders and slide tubes with holders inside of jump pack. from the side that wont be seen and screw them in place after i can be sure from squarness, otherwise there will be ton of flex from size of parts.

in other news some 4 hours of gluing taked me here:

i am been making jumpacks front part (lock thingy?) and after some test prints got it enough pleasant to use, also started to add more details to shoulders (another edge trims i suppouse they are called). i will order more filaments this month and i shall start to try make neck seal at sketchup and just maybe if gods of 3d printers are pleased, also print it with flexible filament :wacko

for using small holiday effectively i have so far created new abs part, which is more rigid as older red one from 5mm foam. also been making some fan places and holders to create some air flow inside, these fan places are 60mm in size, and i am currently seeeking low db ones with good air flow amount.

at next few coming days i am going to try some designs for upper boby frame that could support upper parts, including jump pack.

Fantastic! I like your job.
thank you :)

i have been making some detail parts for upper parts and also started to dive into power fist once more (this time with some v2 parts like shell templates etc)
without further due, here some pics from progress :p

small update, i have created sliding lock mechanism for two sides of power fist shell, also been tinkering with teensy 3.5 board, (and yes i finally managed to get fist work with 16 channel servo driver :p, just after two weeks of coding after work, every evening, 2 hours per evening at least).

so now finger gestures are gonna be mapped to different buttons, thumb and all 4 other fingers have their own "go zero position" button and gestures are gonna be mixed commands of these buttons etc first push button of "close thumb" and "metal gesture" button which shall result into metal gesture, to open up fist just reverse these commands :D

i have also started inner structure of jump pack this week, some photos below

today i continued work on marines chest by adding lock thing and started to create harness "plates" that "connect" jump pack to rest of armor.
inside of lock shall also be additonal 60mm fan to assist in keeping temperature inside more tolerant, when i shall get into actual wearing tests
(someday eventually)

been busy at farm, but had couple free days to continue marine, so i decided to continue the powerfist.

i have been making some moddings to fist shell parts holders in order to add 2020 alu extrusions, also same time old joystick was dissassembled and original buttons put inside drawer. after that i designed some parts to keep joystick mounted at 2020 extrusion, and parts to replace original button hardware, teensy board will also likelu have home within joystick shell.

for couple weeks i have been designing thing to keep actual "jet" part together, these inner support parts are modular and each part that joins round parts ( made of 4 segments) will be 12 cm long.

some testing:

today was the day that i have been waiting for over half a year, first moves under battery power, with 8A overcurrect proctor, and 10A ubec, also with finally working code. i dropped tear or two from joy :lol:

some pics:

testing video, there is some black lash since servo horns are not fully secured yet and one or two is semidead.

after finding used ice hockey armor thing from flea market for 10€, and taking unneeded bits out by selection of tools including hammer. i have then started making inner support structure from it that will support the weight of jumppack and distritube weight hopefully more evenly.
most likely i shall install it permanentely by printed pipe holders and right lenght cutted pipes installed to them inorder to have ability to take it out if nessecary or by filling "voids" inside of armor by right shaped stacked eva foam pieces glued into armor:unsure:.

inner support structure has got some 3d printed parts for rigidity and is at process to get into trying it, while it holds shoulder armor pieces :)

today after while, i have made good progress with back side holder parts, these will help me to get inner weight support thing
(modified hockey armor) out, when there is need of adjusting or repairing.
when i get my third iteration of lock part printed i hopefully get to desing front parts to use same princible as at backside,
has taken so far two evenings/nights to design and print with 1,2mm nozzle.

small update :), i managed to get armors inside supporter to work and used my small holiday to create harness that uses the same inner support thing to strap into. also started to create prototype for holding the shoulder armor pieces, that would give me possibility to take them off if needed.

my friend visited and helped me to try out my harness system as it is so far.
