    A friend is printing/building and ironman

    https://www.therpf.com/showthread.php?t=270301


    he was badgering me for months to build a war machine as he'd already bought the files, To wet my appetite he gave me all his discarded prints to practice with, sanding, gluing, painting, I just couldn't take it anymore so to shut him up I had to buy a 3d printer (the creality cr-10) ;)

    for the past few weeks its been running 24/7 printing, failing, reprinting etc. this thread is I suppose going to be pic heavy

    so I started war machine with the face plate, first thing I printed well, ever!

    printer wasn't quite setup properly so a bit of work to do fixing the error in it

    [​IMG]

    now the rest of the helmet

    [​IMG]

    again, printer wasn't quite dialed in

    [​IMG]

    but fitted together ok all things considered

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    now the arms, first time I've had to swap out the filament mid print

    [​IMG]

    while they are printing some time to sand and fill

    [​IMG]

    pics got messed up here, next is the top of the helmet

    [​IMG]

    and onto the shoulders

    [​IMG]

    this is when I had to stop printing and fix the issues with the printer, tighten everything, realign and just make sure everything was ok

    that made the print quality light years better

    [​IMG]

    couldn't resist a little test fit

    Joel bought the bigger cr10 50*50*50 rather then my 30*30*40 so has printed me the chest piece, currently mine is printing the shoulder ammo packs

    * it takes a long time!

    thanks, I think I have found a sweet spot with it now, messing around with the print speeds now to see just how fast I can get it before it messes up, had a spectacular fail this afternoon lol

    My pleasure bru :D its looking awesome so far and your IM lid is smoother than mine, that's for sure.
    markseven I'm currently using a modified version of the S3D profile from The Hot End. I found the Uncle Jessy settings didn't quite work for me. If you have a profile you'd care to share I'd love to try it out.

    wannabe I'm using uncle Jessy's but I change the temp depending which filament brand I use.

    This is a sample. Hope to start printing the mk46 soon

    This is spectacular. I'm looking for some Mk 1 WM files to experiment with 3D printing.

    Been doing it Pepakura but it'd be fun to try something sturdier.

    Wow very impressive you're 3d printer runs all the time ? ^^

    I've Anet A8, for the print you're infill is 100% ? and how do you cut the file ?

    yep its been running more or less non stop since I got it, cut it with 3d builder, infill depends on what I'm printing, anywhere from 15% to 40% so far, my cr10 has a 30x30x40cm print area so don't have to do a great deal of cutting

    Printer still working 24/7, had a weeks holiday which is why there have been no updates recently

    mid section is all glued / welded together, as much as I can while still being able to get it on, will need to use straps / fasteners / magnets for the other side

    [​IMG]

    Thighs are done, reduced the size after cutting it which has caused one of the lines to mess up, so lots of sanding and filling to fix that :( you live and learn, reduced before cutting !

    [​IMG]

    Managed to get some undercoat on, shows up where needs more work nicely

    [​IMG]

    The thighs where the tallest print I've done so far

    [​IMG]

    Had to support the supports :) didn't want them breaking so far into the print, this black plastic I'm using isn't the best, for some reason goes down a lot thicker and more lines then the silver I've been using - 3d printing is a dark art

    progress has slowed recently :( had a few failed prints on the more intricate parts, plus commitments with the 501st, but on the plus side war machine has a nice new pair of shoes

    another week down :) still printing, and doing lots, LOTS of sanding, so it looks like not a lot of progress but just getting ready to paint. Here's some pics of everything together

    He's a bit on the ****, trying the lay everything out with 2 excitable hounds wanting to play wasn't easy lol

    I also bought the larger CR10 50x50x50cm so the next project should be quite a bit faster, tank trooper, K2SO, boushh or force awakens TK :)

    its been a while since I updated this thread, been working on other things for an upcoming event

    [​IMG]

    So anyway now back to war machine, everything is printed and sanding / filling / painting / sanding / filling painting etc etc has started

    top half painted

    [​IMG]


    I know the graphics aren't quite correct, but its been scaled to me, and I'm about a foot too short ;)

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    some sexy boots

    [​IMG]

    our old world central heating is excellent for drying paint

    [​IMG]

    all done, well, top half

    [​IMG]


    still got a huge to do list, bracket for the gun, hands, electronics, strapping it together, the 'soft' parts - will it ever end?

    and of course the most important bit

    [​IMG]

    I've printed a 2nd helmet which will have all the whistles and bells, this one i've glued the face plate down, reason being getting everything lined up when opening / closing etc with the servos had been a right pain with my iron man helmet, not to mention getting it to sit flush again, plus it makes it heavy and uncomfortable (and no one wants to see my ugly mug anyway)

    Spent the last couple of days strapping it together, this is the first test fit, as I'm such a short * its clear the helmet is out of scale, printing a smaller one now, also re-printing the abs section slightly taller so it stops popping out when I walk (or move in general)



    not sure why it looks like i'm wearing a corset :) think thats just a trick of the light, my waste isn't that small lol

    Been a while :)

    after the first fit it was obvious I had some work to do, reduce the size of the helmet and increase the abs section, so after a lot of printing, sanding, filling, sanding, filling, sanding, painting etc I did a 2nd fitting

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    still experimenting with the strapping, might increase the size of the shoulder bells if I get time :)

    some more pics of the 3rd test fitting, had to mod the chest as the arm holes where digging in, the shoulder bells cover it nicely tho, and add some padding, the gun had servos, need to program an arduino, but apart from that its all ready for fantasy basel, onto the next project - First order stormtrooper
