WIP Sith Acolyte

7 posts in this topic

Just started 3D printing the armor parts for my Sith Acolyte, figured I'd do a build thread as I go along :P Just finished printing and gluing the mask, and have two printers running right now on the chest plate and shoulders. Using 3D Gloop! to glue everything together and printing in PLA on a Prusa i3 Mk3S and a super cheap Mk2 clone

Mask:

Will get everything printed first, then go through and do the whole bondo/filler step before painting.

 

Updates may be a bit sporadic since I travel a lot for work.

Shoulder #1 done. Just started #2, and about half way done printing the upper chest.

Chest and abs done, as well as the second shoulder. Currently printing elbows and hand plates :) Will start printing the cod piece tonight, but that'll be a few days of printing. Slowly but surely getting the base of everything done, then it's time to clean up all of the 3D Gloop! and sand, then prime and paint.

Elbows and hand parts printed. Ordered some tactical gloves without logos on Amazon. Will do a ton of sanding on the fingers and shoulders to clean them up, but I'm pretty happy with the hand plates and thumbs.

They totally are your finger/thumb :P Print files I got didn't have the hand parts. Also stole your elbows lol.  Thanks for the tips on fixing the thumb out :)

Playing with wood filler for smoothing instead of bondo/resin. Kind of dig it - easy to sand and looks pretty good. Was covering everything, but may scale it back to just the seams since it seems like automotive primer fills print lines pretty well. Using a hammered dark gray spray paint for the color and a little texture, and I dig it. Will black wash everything once they're all done.
