    Oof. Leave it to me to say I'll post and...not.

    Sorry, things have been a bit crazy over here.

    I'm getting a bit closer a finished product with the box itself and have more or less finished my version of the vinegaroon.

    I still need to add the ridged part to the top of the hinge and there are some pieces here that are still just boolean modifiers (not applied) to the model for now. I'm guessing a flat plate goes directly below the lid for the metal mesh and oblong box piece to fit in (and where the lighting gets mounted?)

    Interior sculpted rings have yet to be started, but I did get around to getting the following:

    Attachment 478919
    Based on the scale of the actual insect within the box, I'm not at all sure how much of this detail will end up in the final print, but I'm thinking I'll have it done on an SLA printer to get as much detail as we can.

    ERMGRD this looks amazing! I love it so much. Inkblot you rock!

    Here's where I'm at with the interior rings for the scorpion box.

    The pattern was drawn on a flat graphic in Photoshop, then projected on to a cylindrical subtool in Zbrush. Some additional tinkering was done back in Blender, such as edge cleanup and planar decimation.

    Closer to finished! I've since added some subdivisions to help smooth out the curves; things are on their way to be printed now.

    Will post photos when they arrive.

    Here's a small update.

    I decided to redo the palm pad. On the first attempt I screwed up the spacing between some grommets and it just really bothers me. At first I was going to to leave it alone, for the sake of time since I'm trying to have this done by DragonCon. However, the more I looked at it the more it upset me. So I retraced the palm pad on the leather and placed all the grommets where I want them and marked the leather to punch the holes. This one will be much better.

    This evening my focus is getting my shop area cleaned up and organized. I've been lazy and things began to pile up. After I reclaim my work space I'll be working on more of the leather parts for the main arm tube and should be able to start assembling more pieces.

    Check out the shop train wreck...

    I'm almost done with the revised palm pad. Instead of the silver grommets I got some that have a antique / weathered look.

    I'm so happy with the spacing of the grommets on this new palm pad.

    Now back to work on assembling some of the other parts of the glove.

    More pictures and updates coming soon

    The print job arrived earlier today; unfortunately it looks like one of the parts was erroneously printed and sent out, so I'm currently missing the bottom of the cage. Hopefully I'll be able to get that sent out soon!

    In the mean time, here are a few shots:

    Two in this shot (even though I printed three) because the third lost bits off the legs in transport. Bottlecap for scale; these are really not very large at all and the limbs are very thin. I am glad I had the foresight to print three. Hopefully at least one will arrive at @helpfulnerd's unharmed!

    inkblot, this is so cool. I can't wait to start assembling this part. I took a nap and woke up to this update. I'm so excited!

    I'm doing some more work on the glove tonight, getting my work shop organized so I can focus on this build from now until DragonCon.

    I'll be working on the "Dial A Demon" part tonight as well as some of the vacuum tube parts. Basically gonna see how far I can get between now and Aug 1st.

    I read your write up on your blog, good stuff - which reminds me that I need to also post an update to my blog with my progress so far too.

    Thanks for all your hard work on these parts!

    Did some test fitting of the "Dial A Demon" parts and the leather that wraps around the arm tube above the spinning gear.

    Starting to take more shape. Have to finish the graphics for the dial a demon gauge and then some paint for the gauge rim and then I can start assembling.

    Moving onto some more leather work for behind the hand, the leather that goes under the vineagroon cage as well some other detailed bits for the back of the hand.

    More pics soon, now back to work.

    @inkblot made a video of the scorpion cage parts that I commissioned her for.

    Sadly a major part didn't arrive. but that was Shapeways fault, not hers.

    But, the good news is that she made this awesome video showing progress regarding the other parts that DID arrive.

    Check it out:

    https://youtu.be/QEprkbicNxo

    It's coming together, and the parts are looking great so far!

    I got my parts from inkblot today. I started sanding, priming and painting the scoripion box as it's been called in other threads.

    Waiting on some more parts from Shapeways including the one that they forgot to print and send out.

    This i so cool.
    When i first saw the build of Adam, and the thread he made with the others i was like: I'll never be able to build something like that.
    But seeing what you're doing, this is awesome

    I might even try it myself (after my other projects =D)

    Thanks, I appreciate the kind words.

    I have to admit that I was also intimidated by not only the detail of a piece like this, but that Adam made such an awesome version.

    Then I realized that I could put my own creative spin on it.

    Let me know if you have any questions about parts, feel free to PM me. I'll be doing a parts run at some point later this year, probably cast resin kits for different main parts of the glove, but that's down the road.

    And if you decide to tackle your own mecha-glove send me the link to your build thread.

    I'll have more updates soon. I'm trying to have this complete for DragonCon, I'll be doing a cosplay of Rasputin from the portal scene.

    Here, in order, are patterns for the top and bottom leather of the tube (6" diameter) and exploded drawings of the hand and the back-of-the-hand scorpion case. (vinegaroon case I know). More coming. I did lots of drawings.

    For size that's a standard width belt in the first photo, I did all the grommet work on it myself (with 1/8" eyelets, antique finish- the same finish I had on my palm grommets) and both pieces of leather have about 1/2" of overlap.

    this is a very good reference for all the leather, in scale to each other. There may be some artifacts when it's all sized correctly, but it's darned close. Can't wait to see how these progress!

    Thanks for these references. I'm going in a slightly different direction for this version for my cosplay at DragonCon....BUT....I will be tackling a screen accurate version after D'Con and this reference is going to come in very handy.

    Things are getting painted tonight, more work has been done on the lower arm tube, and I'm going to try to get the main glove attached tonight. Two weeks to go until DragonCon. Lots to do.

    Yep, I'm gonna start working on the robe this next week. I lead a bearded lifestyle but I'm trimming it a bit, cleaning it up. I also shaved my head a month ago, to get some sun on my head. I gotta cut it again before DragonCon. And of course I will have the Mecha-Glove.

    I gotta watch the movie again to practice my pose and practice my "I'm opening a portal to the agdu jihad" face.

    My buddy @KJC and I'll be in costume on Friday as Rasputin and Kroenen.
