    It's clear that this is not going to happen but we still want to spread the love anyway so I've published the 3D printable files on Thingiverse for all to share.

    Link: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1715105

    So enjoy, and don't mess with the regulator or you might go sub-atomic.


    See below for original post:


    Hello ladies and gents! Daniel and the IronManiac, the duo known as Nova Props have been in our lab cooking up something special for all our pals here on TheRPF.

    I submit to you a few renders of our belt inspired by Ant-Man.
    We've been working on this for awhile now but wanted to wait till we saw the movie before finalizing the design and committing to fabrication.

    The belt will be complete with the buckle, wrap around treads which you can cut to size, side pieces and the rear gadget. It should be simple enough to mount this to leather or nylon.

    We've designed the belt to come in pieces as kit which you'll be able to size to fit your own waist big or small.

    We are looking at $230 per set PLUS SHIPPING.
    We need a minimum of 15 firm commitments with a deposit of $100 from each.

    The Regulator.

    Remember kids, don't mess with the regulator. You wouldn't want to go sub-atomic.

    Belt tracks come as separate pieces so that you can use as many or as few as needed to fit your waist size perfectly. These will be cast in a durable black elastomer (TASK 14).

    Parts after 3D printing and finishing work done by Jason Brand aka Sir Shaggy (AL) ( pictured below).
    Molds will be produced by JEL Effects in FL.
    Will be cast in-house at Nova Props Georgia (Augusta) office in TASK 14 which is a durable black elastomer.

    Yes, this looks interesting. It will depend for me on how much effort the rest of the suit will be to build or buy. It will definitely be in demand.

    Here's a quick test-casting I did today. This is NOT the fully polished/finished version of the central piece of the regulator. I wanted to see how it would come out using a certain material/pigment.

    Here's another render of the "Pym vial" installed in the belt. I finished 3D printing most of the parts today and now I have the very labor intensive task of finishing those so that they look good.

    It won't be long now! :)

    Can the belt be used as a regular day belt to hold my pants and shorts? Also, Would you be selling the belt buckle alone? Or would it only come as a set?

    As thick as the belt is I don't think it will fit in standard belt loops.

    But no this will come as a complete kit.

    All the parts have been fabricated and I am currently in the process of finishing those 3D prints so that they are perfectly smooth before making the production molds. So far I have spent about 16 hours sanding, my hands are killing me but it'll be worth it when it's done. I have at least another week of finishing work before these are ready to mold.

    Yes indeed, I shipped everything out to IronManiac to look at/finish out. I'm just waiting on that now.
    We're swamped with orders for dragoncon so it's got us juggling for time at the moment but that will be over soon.

    Re: The Regulator - Ant-Man Belt - Nova Props

    Hey guys, yes still in progress. The designs are done and 3D printed, but we have been so swamped with orders that we've had little time to work on the finishing phase of the project.
    I thought things would slow down some after D-Con, but we're even busier now than ever with having ComiconNY and Halloween. :)

    But the good news is that I was able to get a friend to work on finishing the parts for us, Jason Brand of AL. He's the one who built a full-scale tumbler, ed-209, etc.
    He's got the parts and has been painstakingly sanding and polishing them for the last few weeks.

    I know it's a slow process, but we don't want to release something that isn't as perfect as we can make it.

    James let me know he's getting closer to finishing off the parts. I have one more piece to send him. Once I get all that back I'll be able to calculate the cost of molds and casting and update you all with a price.

    Got word yesterday, Jason has finished the polishing work on the parts and is shipping them back to me here in Georgia. Pictures coming soon...

    Once I get these back I'll talk to some of our mold makers and get a quote for the mold production. Once we know that we'll be able to get a solid idea on what this is going to cost.

    I'm so excited! :D
