Re: Life Size Apocalypse Bust

Hello fellow Raisers, Here's an update on my 3d Printed Apocalypse Bust printed on my Raise 3D N2+. I used Z-brush for the modeling and creation of the 3d Print files. Did quiet a bit of finishing work to the bust and I'm really happy how it turned out. Next step is to finish printing the neck armor...

Re: Life Size Apocalypse Bust

Thanks Rob, Yea getting the hang of it, I had some peers use XTC3d and told me they tried the brush on technique you mentioned with some success. My mistake was that this piece was basically my first true prepping experience. Would have been good to experiment with smaller prints but I jumped in hea...

Re: Life Size Apocalypse Bust

New video out! I break down the following: ► The initial concept and character design. ► 3d modeling and digital sculpting in Zbrush. ► The use of live booleans in Zbrush for designing and preparing the model for 3d printing. ► The 3d printing process along with showing time lapse footage on a Raise...

Re: Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

Got some gluing and sanding done this weekend. Trying to balance out the sanding between getting rid of the print lines but keeping the surface details. 35514083_607029686349257_3620194978514337792_o.jpg 35487985_607029599682599_2279839851274567680_o.jpg 35465370_607029633015929_8321230782148378624_...

Re: Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

The propmaker's approach to this kind of thing would be to print it in something like PLA, make a mold, and cast it (the strap-like bits might get sewn and distressed). I don't know where you're located, but in Los Angeles, Reynold's Advanced Materials could talk you through molding/demolding and r...

Re: Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

I would really like to actually build the black scaled body suit that he has. Would this be possible to do in a flexible material, especially the neck part as it will need to bend. I'm open to suggestions. I could also create a cast and mold it with some type of rubber, so that another option I coul...

Re: Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

Really nice work! Curious -- I do a lot of reverse engineering these days but it's usually in an engineering context. When you're designing things like the mask, what's your process for fitting it to the scanned data? Do you just model it close? Do you snap it to the scanned geometry? Thanks! Well ...

Re: Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

Scorpion Shoulder Armor has been quiet a challenge so far. Two different designs and numerous sizing changes. After a couple of tweaks to the models and some failed prints, I got all the final parts printed. This weekend we glue, sand and prime! These is the final design that I decided to print. 352...

Mortal Kombat Scorpion Mask & Amor

I have been working on this project on and off for a long time. This is one of the reasons I got into 3d printing in the first place. I started by going to a local studio and getting my body scanned then turned into scan data. From there I started to model the armor on top of my 3d model. The painte...

Re: Life Size Apocalypse Bust

Hey Rob, I ended up being able to put 4 pounds of weight. I think once I design the final base along with the weights it will hold up like a champ. The amount of prep work is massive on this! One of the seems on the armor i have to do some more sanding on to get it completely smooth. Seams are somew...

Re: Life Size Apocalypse Bust

I decided to do a video update on the Neck Armor for my 3d Printed Apocalypse Bust. Bust was not initially able to balance itself without possibly being glued to the base, which is not something I want to do at this point. I decided to front-load the Neck Armor and thus had to re-design parts of it....
