3D Printed Stormtrooper Armor (not screen accurate). Feel free to tweak and improve these files. I printed the whole suit of armor for Halloween 2015. I scaled everything to fit me. I’m 5′ 6″ tall and weigh 150 pounds. I have had to do some trimming and adjustments to the printed parts to make them a little more comfortable to wear and more form fitting but they worked great for what I wanted. You will have to bondo them if you want them to be perfectly smooth. I put a thin layer of bondo on everything before painting to take out the print lines. The forearm and shin pieces needed a little more bondo to take out the angles on them. I’m very happy with how this turned out. I created some of the pieces and others are modified from files I found online used for pepakura (I would put up a link but I can’t find them anymore). The helmet is from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:391664
Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!
Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
