Here's the DIY of IRONMAN 2!
This is my first experience doing something like this and I want to share it, 4 long months working all weekends. This is the pepakura method, so you need a lot of patience.

"Get ready for..." Stage

First list of material:
Scisors
Knife
Paper Cardstock
Hot Glue
Your PC and Printer
Pepakura Viewer software


DOWNLOAD Pepakura software.

Thanks to ROBO for this awesome files!!! the best 3D model of ironman on the web!

Step 1: "Print - cut - Paste"

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

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.

I made the helmet, but it is so small for my big head :) so I'll begin with a bigger one. Also, I used thick cardboard, which makes it imposible to make the small details and curvatures, so I'll use a thiner one.

I can't find the link. the link at the beginning of this file apparently no longer exists. Any idea where I can find the paper files to make this pattern?

Thanks,

So when I try to print out the helmet, part of the eye won't print with the rest. When I view the helmet in pepakura the pieces that won't print aren't in the white tiles like the rest of the pieces, they're in the grey area. Thanks

You don't need those pieces, that's why they are in the gray area

Thanks it looked like we needed them but it seems like it just covers up the eye

sknipas7 made it!2 months ago
I made this costume a while back (2012-2013) using recycled materials.
I used empty beer cans ( after cutting top and bottom of the can making aluminum sheets of the rest ) and using toner transfer method for the pepakura printed pieces. Then after cutting them I used a hot glue gun to glue pieces together. After that I applied newspaper pieces soaked into PVA glue ( Disney's art attack method).
Next I used sandpaper to smooth the pieces and finally I applied primer and spray paint.
It was a very cheap build( 70 euros - 80$ total), very light (6 or 7 kg) and pretty durable.

Hey I'm thinking about trying this, but there is currently no file in the "Shoulder R" folder. If you could please update this I'd greatly appreciate it! I would hate to size every piece and not end up having the right shoulder.

hey, wich papersize did u use? 297x210mm?

Hello. How much did it cost you to make the hole project? I have started building it on my own, with cardboard and EVA foam but I think your idea is much much better.

Hey! Um, As you can probably see I'm a girl... And I was wondering if this suit design and stuff would work with my... let's say, female body specifications lol xD I'd really like to make this at some point but I don't want to download the files and everything if it's not going to work!
I was also wondering how long it took you to do this? If you stated it above then I apologise, I must have over looked it but yeah, would I need more than 3/4 weeks? lol thanks in advance!! This is really amazing work lol xD -AP

Raksayarth AniP17 months ago

You would probably use the same method he states in this Instructable, except you will have to find other different Pepakura files than the ones he used, ones specifically designed to accommodate your...ah...female body differences. You will be able to use most of the ones here, probably excepting the torso and possibly the pelvic piece as well. I hope this helps.

love it!!!

I'm in the process of building the Mark IV using your process and I noticed that there is some sort of under armor under the chest and under the back piece. Is this the collar plate? as it looks to be one piece. Or is it something else?

Can you help? Thanks

The pepakura file is on the first page of this Instructable. Copy and past the link given and you will come to a page that you can download the parts. If you need Pepakura Veiwer or Designer, go to this link: http://www.tamasoft.co.jp/pepakura-en/

I would like to use this method on another project, and I am curious, can I use fiberglass resin on poster board foam?

ChrisReezy79 months ago

is the cardstock paper you used white or what color?

It looks like he used white but that isn't a big deal because it will be covered with body filler and paint.

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?
