    I used 2mm and 3mm foam, def not as stable so fabric back it for stability and to make it stiffer!

    Re: FOAM speed-building files'n'tricks : added Iron Man ULTIMATE v2.

    Since I have "Letter" paper and not "A4", I believe that I can just go into the file->print paper and settings menu and change it to letter. Then, I can drag the parts around a little to save paper. I think this is the right way to do it.

    But, if I just open the model and go to print it, it gives me a warning that the paper size of the model and the paper size of the printer don't match and asks if I want to resize it. I am guessing that this would be a "bad thing" and would make the parts the wrong size. Am I right about this?

    Yes, you're all right. It does not take a long time at all.

    Noooo! Speed Building foam edits released after I've completed all my WM parts but the Gatling! Just kidding, great work with this JF. I tried your soda bottle pivot trick, but I used cheap water bottles, and they crinkled and melted when I tried to glue them in :(. Now I'm using heavy duty snaps from the craft store. $.50 a snap, and they're much thinner than bottle tops. Plus if you over stress them, they release instead of tearing the foam. Love your arc tip too. Thanks again for this great thread.

    Thank you for your kind words :D

    I had a doubt about the Extremis scaling, so I built the halmet as a check test.

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    It's very skiny, in fact it fits me as close as a sock. I must increase scale factor up to 11 or 12 and check again.

    Crap!!! I'm looking at my war machine stuff I already made in cardstock, then I look here, and wonder, why didn't I wait a couple of weeks until you finished your files? :facepalm :behave

    Foam comes from "Domyos fitness TG 100" polyethylen (PE) mats. I bought as much rolls as I could carry at once from Décathlon's checkout to the back of my car.

    I first have to unfold the IM Classical Armour, from our well known EyeOfSAuron's thread, then I'll unfold this Mark III. And I'll build one too, with MkII painting.
