Ok so everyone knows I'm an ironman fan. I went to Dragoncon convention in Atlanta Georgia which was enormous week long event. Me and two friends started to pep ironman suites. That's building a skin out of paper them fiberglassing it. The pre made one I was using I didn't like so I'm in the process of getting another suite Taylor made for my big man figure :) , I had to make measurements everywhere for the 3d designer to use.

The pre made hulkbuster pep file....

I wasn't wild about this and physical ly making it wasn't pretty. So in comes the new model progress. It will have a functional helmet lift from a rc servo , the repulse rs in hands will glow when i open my hand and ofcourse sound effects :) i will come up with more later. Here's the progress of the new model..

This is progress pics but not finished , the sides of the chest will be lower so that my arms can actually fit in hulkbuster arm sockets. This is loosely based on ironman vs hulk marvel issue 375. This is a long term project for next year's events. The ez robot app will make controlling the electronics in the suite easy.

Ok I have been so busy around the holidays but the hustle is about over now. So I can get back to fun projects. I managed to score a silhouette cameo machine which is a robotic paper cutter. He he. Robots used to make robot costumes :)
I TRIED a whole evening to get it to work from my laptop until I found out that one of the three pieces of software is not compatible with windows 8. So now I get to redo everything on Jarvis controller pc because it's the only machine I have with Win 7 on it. I tried installing. Win 7 on my laptop but the Dell bios didn't like it. So until I have "Robo cutter" working I'm cutting pieces by hand.

The last pic is a stock image. Once my workspace is setup I will snap a picture of it. Currently you can buy them new for 200 and used even cheaper to save time cutting the cardboard pieces. I am using it to make a robot costume but you can use it to print robot body parts and paint resin on to make them hard.

This are the first pieces of the new armor. They are the "exhaust stacks" coming out of the back. These pieces were hand cut so it took about 3 hours

That's what it's called! I knew there were robotic paper cutters which I was going to get when I started my MK4 suit but changing to foam (and evidently not even near completion 18 months on) I scrapped the idea and forgot what it was called.

Have you got it set up yet? How well does it work?

Yeah. Been looking to get one of these for a while now to make airbrush stencils, how easy is the software to use?

The software package that comes with the cameo is for things like scrap booking and cutting vinyl decals. I may use the decal thing. You can literally draw with simple to use tools and then it cuts them out like you drew them.

To use it for pepakura though you gotta download something called Cameo Controller and Pepakura viewer for Cameo cutter which is 15 dollars

the cameo controller software doesn't function on win 8

Once I have it calibrated I will report back
