No one tell Tony Stark, but it’s possible to make armor with a 3D printer and a couple thousand dollars. Redditor captain8ball’s friend, transcoder, made this War Machine cosplay for Dragon Con with a Prusa i3v 3D printer. He designed all the parts and plans to release the files soon. The face plate is attached with magnets so it can be easily removed, and there’s a 40mm fan in the chin so he doesn’t overheat. He explained some basics on Reddit:
Yes, the body segment pieces are made with Pepakura/fiberglass technique with various printed parts glued to them for effect. All guns were printed fully. The turret and mount alone were something like 24 individual pieces bolted and glued together.
…the joints are flexible, I tried a couple different methods, but hanging them from 1″ nylon webbing gave the most flexibility.
