First list of material:
Scisors
Knife

Hot Glue
Your PC and Printer

Once you have all the files in your PC, you proceed to print each part.

Cutting the pieces by the solid line.

The dotted line is for "mountain" folding and the dot-line-dot is for "valley" folding.

Match each tab with its corresponding number using hot glue, helped with the Pepakura Viewer to identify easily each piece.

Do the same with all the parts one by one to avoid confusing the pieces.

TIP: Save each printed & cutted page of the part in numbered folders for easy identifying.

I downloaded the pepakura... the right shin left shin r the same! same thing w/ the right/left handplate...any suggestions?
same w/ shoulders, thighs and biceps
sekkei (author)  digg44442 years ago
HEY! Sorry for the delay...
Here's a thing! some pieces are the same in the 3D model (left and right),
but if you take a look closely they are not the same, try to print them and you will notice the difference, I really have not idea why the 3D model doesn't change when flip is apply to parts.
Other pieces, like the hand plate, are just the same for both sides.

hey i am having troubles downloading the files i got the shins and thighs and spine but everything else is an empty file folder but the shins, thighs, and spine are all pdo files any idea why its doing this?

How tall are you? How important would body type customizations be in your opinion? I'm currently about 5'9" or so, would you suggest any major changes for my build?

like me get this straight, you are able to fit inside of it right, b/c when I looked inside of the helmet file, it seems to be reinforced across the inside towards the front, is this correct.

Hello. I have a question for the author who made this suit. I have a person claiming these pictures as his own. His name is Brad Evans and he lives in TN. He is wanting to trade for this suit he claims to have made but the images he texted are these above. I am wondering if this is a scam because I always do my homework before hand. Please let me know ASAP!!!! Thank you so much. PS This suit is amazing to whoever did actually make it. Thanks again!

sekkei (author)  zache18 days ago
Hello, sure is scam, as far as I know the new owners of both of my suits they still have them, one suit is in California and the last and second one is in New York, and the name you gave to me doesn't match any of the actual owners.
Beware and thanks!

I am 5'7, 172 lbs. What scale should I make it in the software before printing?

Also, what do you use for a foundation or support when gluing the pieces together to ensure accuracy?

props to you man! I tried this method, and I only did the helmet. The rest was just too much time, money, and glued and burned fingers! I'm moving to the foam method for the suit now. Congrats bro. That's dedication ;)

Hey, your link to the pdo files goes to an empty folder. I was just in it a week ago and it had everything but I didn't save them. Have they been moved? Do you still have a copy of them??

Hey,

great work! I'm on it but i wonder about the paper size: did you use A3 or A4?
And how did you get the parts together, like schoulder and bizeps?

Thanks!
Kilian
sekkei (author)  kilian10247 months ago

Cardstock with 110 thickness and regular sized paper. And all parts are together with hot glue in the paper stage, and using fiberglass like tape or Velcro at the final assembly. Hope this can help you

Regards!!

how much would it cost me for you to make one for me and send it to canada and how would i pay?

Going to attempt this in the summer. Do you have any idea what the average cost would be? Like how much card stock, resin, body filler... I just want an estimate to see if this is realistic to start.

Thanks for the great Instructable!

hey sekkei, please can you tell me something?

how do you put hinges on the forearm/wrist piece
ps. i would also like to know how to put hinges on the helmet
so i would be able to lift up the faceplate
