I was looking for some medieval Shoulder protection for me and my kids... after looking around, I didn't find something that could handle my kids play style ;)... so I take this as an opportunity to fire up my freecad and design something new!
Here is the resulting product! Look great , could be wearied without any shame :)
I've printed them scaled at 60%, 65% for my kid and 85% ( need a large bed) for me
You also need to print pivot cover at the same scale...
After print, free the pivot ,paint it using a permanent gold maker(eg. Sharpie work well),glue the cover on the pivot , and glue a leather band inside the biggest plate to attach it to the costume...
Printed using silver filament and painted gold part using a gold sharpie ( permanent marker)
I've added the freecad file so you could made custom pivot cover, or change the design... have fun!
You should also take look a my other design (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1804922) or (http://www.thingiverse.com/Stonedge/designs)
Hope this would made some little knight happy! If you made it, please post pics!
Tevo tarantula with large bed and flsun kossel
Number of shell 3
The stl contain 5 independent part(3 Armor plate and 2 pivot) that are already correctly positioned (and the required support for pivots are already included)
So open the stl with your favourite slicer, scale it to your needs and print!
Scaled at 60% = internal distance between pivot of 145mm
Scaled at 65% = internal distance between pivot of 155mm
With a pair of long nose plier or a small flat screwdriver, pop out the small pivot support triangle. Turn both pivot to be sure they're free from the three Armor plate.
Glue the pivot covert and the top strap, fix it to your favourite medieval costume and enjoy!
