My Exo-suit Concept

This is a project I decided to do during my spare time in my Advanced Technical Drafting class in school, an powered exo-suit. I know it looks a little like the Edge of Tomorrow suit but that is only because that suit had some good design elements that I modeled after.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Design Process Details

I designed each one of the large number of parts in my spare time in Solidworks. As stated before I took some hints from the suits from Edge of Tomorrow for the design of the hip and chest but everything else came from my brain.

I should note that the fist covers in the non painted pictures are not the current fist covers. the new fist covers are more like the ones in the colored picture.

Step 2: Front View

Step 3: Back View

Step 4: When Partially Constructed

Step 5: With Paint

I hope you have enjoyed the powered exo-suit I designed. Thanks and Goodbye.

Update 1/23/15: i am planning to print a small 3d model and will post a picture soon

    Right now I just have the designs but I am planning to eventually make it.

    Thanks!

    I have to say, I have been trying to collect the resources for an exo-suit, and am not really getting far, haha. But, I do like your suit you have here. It is similar to a few drawings I have. So are you actually making it, or do you just have the plans? If you do make it, I would like to see your process and materials. Very nice job overall

    ive been trying and planning to make 1 but its really hard considering the hydralics and motors and powering it please contact me on facebook justice churchill

    i cant right now but i could talk on Facebook tomorrow is that OK?

    and for powering you would either have to be tethered to a power source, have an enormous stack of lithium ion batteries, have an on board generator, or (ideally but not so feasible) an mini nuclear power system.

    i personally probably wouldn't use actuators, i would use a system of springs, smaller motors, and actuators.
