You could use anything really, old clothes, packing material, newspaper. I use the expanding PU foam because it is relatively cheap, hardens quickly and is a chemical reaction (meaning it doesn't need air to dry) Expanding foam from a can will work, but it is usually air drying, so if you fill up the suit too quickly the foam at the bottom won't be able to cure because there is no air.

Materilise are based in the UK and Europe and I deal with them directly rather than going through the website uploader. I'm afraid I don't know of any suppliers in the US that do SLA. I know Shapeways can do SLS, but I'm not sure if they now do SLA also?
Thank you, thank you so much. :D
Thank you! Keep at it, with enough hard work and dedication you'll get there :D

There are lots and LOTs of ways to stuff a mannequin! :D
This is very true, the heat would most likely pop the balloons. I did very little research on the the foam I used, but yes there are plenty of varieties. In hindsight a foam with a larger expansion rate and a softer shore hardness would have been more suitable./

Yup, you most certainly could. My only concern is that the foam may react with the stuffing, what ever that might be, Testing it first is strongly advised. I have seen expanding foam shrink dramatically after it has cured due to contamination.
Thank you :D
Thanks for the vote. Yes, this is good advice. I might edit my text to add something about this. Thank you.
Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
I had wanted to make it a folding version, but I needed to get it done in one day, so time was against me. I think I may go in and 'edit' edit this one, chopping the arms and legs off, adding some straight joiners the pipe and sealing it up again. I don't need to put shirts/trousers on him yet, but I expect i will soon.
