Took a model from the game and made it printer friendly. Working on the rest of the armor. These pieces are for a full sized adult, about 6 feet tall, maybe up to 6'4". The rest of the arm armor is nearly done but the scale is wrong and i haven't designed the peg slots yet. At this scale, these will fit on a makerbot/flashforge printer (about 8"x5.5"x6"). big_red_frog's helmet is linked here because it's beautifully done and there's no point inn me trying to undo that person's hard work. Not reinventing the wheel here- I just want to make a fully printable Halo armor set available for the public and I think I have a decent process in doing so. Suggestions on scaling, fasteners, etc are welcome as I am relatively new to this.


I would superglue 1/4" pegs (or rods cut to size) in, superglue the seams a tiny bit, and then use a wall plaster or putty to seal up any seams. Thin wooden dowels are very cheap and it's not worth 3d printing pegs that will crack and snap easily. I may design peg hole caps that could be 3D printed but those are minor at this point.
Let it all dry, sand it down, and paint over it for a great look without the pain and suffering of a true old school cosplayer.

Note: flip parts 2 and parts 3 upside down on the print bed to save material.

unfortunately, i think the models here are slightly too thin. not the walls, but the size. i have close to average forearm girth for an adult male but it was scraping a lot. if anyone else has this problem or wants to play it safe, i'd change the width and depth axis to 1.25 scale. there can always be more padding but if its too skinny then its impossible to change in and out of comfortably. i'll try to make more models for this suit but i dont have the time to test anymore for a while and the model converting will be slow going as well but i'll do my best. i'll take a suggestion for next piece (thigh, shin, etc) but again might be a while since i try to modify then to be simple to assemble

After printing ill probably use epoxy to glue together then use my soldering iron to melt fuse the inner seams.Keep up the great work. Im looking forward to updates of the other pieces.

I've started to print a set. You have done a great job, but i have a question what do you use in the pinslots to keep the whole thing together?

thank you. i use quarter inch wooden dowels, cut to length of a couple inches each. super glue them in and superglue the edge of each piece coming together. the dowels themselves might hold it but super glue and plaster can make it feel like a single piece

cool. so far it looks great. good luck!
