Two molds are done and i have made a few casts in resin with black dye. I will cast more when i have made some more molds for more belt boxes.

The grey ones are the "masters" and the black are the casted part in solid resin.

The masters are 100% solid PLA print, as you can see the resin weighs twice as much.

Instead of printing the same boxes for the belt I'm making silicone molds so i can cast them in resin instead.

I have printed one forearm that i have started to assemble. The print didn't come out great so there will be a lot of filling and sanding.

I´m not printing anymore before i get the leveling on the printer bed at a 100%

Here are the printed parts, one part is missing and that is the Front Connector.

I start by gluing down the Connector Ring.

After that i glue one of Side Connectors on Front and Back

After that i glue the Front and Back parts together and using the Side Connectors to line the parts up.

Whats missing is the Front Connector, but i need to use some filler on that one before i glue it down.

 

9142 Props and Armory have posted a video how they work with PLA printed armor parts.

When i get to the bigger armor parts i will try to coat with fiberglass resin, ill add some high res pictures of how it looks.
