Looks fantastic! Can you share your Cura settings?

Hey do you know if the kit could be 501st approved ( the non profit)? How much editing and customizing would i have to do to fit someone that's 5'4 athletic build?

Hello, I spoke to my local costuming officers from Rebel Legion and they say it is approvable. Temuera Morrison (original actor) is 5'7" and the armor is sized for relatively skinny people so it should probably fit you just right. But the only way to know for sure is to print test pieces and try them on. Follow the instructions in description and you should be okay.

What is the size of the armor currently?

Please read the description: "Armor is 5 mm thick and fitted for skinny / average body build around 180 cm tall.
You will most probably need to adjust size of some parts. I'm 190 cm tall skinny and most parts fit me at 110% size, except for forearms which are long enough so I only widened them to 110% in X and Y to put my arms through. The same follows for lower legs. Thighs are similarly 105% in X and Y. Measure your body carefully and print test slices to see if the it fits you before printing the whole part."

What I meant by size would be chest and waist. Is average a L, M ,XL that sort of thing I'm 190cm also

I'd say it's M. But really, only reliable way to see if it fits you is to try it on. I reccomend starting with cod piece and to base your scaling on that. Cod, butt, abdomen, chest and back need to be the same scale to fit together and cod/butt pieces are the ones that should rest on your pelvis.

Awesome, but there is one important detail. The comm pad should be placed like this: [IMG], I hope you haven't glued it down yet.

is it possible to post a version of the chest and back pieces in 4 parts? My Cr-10 can fit all the other pieces except those two.

I intentionally uploaded all the parts in one piece to minimize unnecessary seams if your printer can fit the whole part. You can very easily split the part yourself in meshmixer, video tutorial here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KyvBo6tkywc

Awesome work I've been looking all over for Clone Armor and this looks like a nice one I will print.

Thank you, I did my best... Could you share your make afterwards?

Do you know if your files can be 501st approved with the correct amount of finishing

I'm not a GML, but it looks approvable to me. The only thing they might take issues with are the indent lines on the ab plates, but that's a big "might". Honestly I'm very impressed with these models! I might send these to my local GML for a second opinion ;)

Thank you, I would very much like to hear an educated opinion. And what do you mean by the indent lines? The assembly lines left after gluing or the "trenches" with holes? There has to be some sacrifices to make it possible to wear.

I don't know it for sure, but I'm very confident they can be. This armor resembles the one in movies more than some of the costumes already approved by 501st Legion or Rebel Legion. If you want to be 100% sure, send an e-mail to them and ask. I think armor will pass just fine although you may have trouble getting the right shoes, or helmet.

Really nice work ! Glad to see you managed to achieve this project ! =D

Thank you very much, took me a lot of experimenting, learning and research. I guess there can never be one "perfect" version but I hope this one got pretty close. And honestly, a lot of lower quality and significantly less accurate costumes got approved for 501st legion.

You are welcome! Hope everything about it is clear.

can you post a picture of your make? I'm really interested how it turned out!

Sorry, I have barely started printing it, I don't have enough of the right filament at hand right now, but as soon as i finish some pieces, I'll post photos. I've printed some test pieces in PLA but they are previous versions of model and came from prett crappy printer, so they don't speak for current state of things. The closest to final form is the test butt piece, but if you want to see finished armor, you'll have to wait, mate.
