My name is Chelsea. This blog will document my experiences as I build my own Varia suit.

  1. Hey I have been doing some pep armor and I’ve been looking into 3d printing could you please share some information about your processes.

    • A friend of mine has a few Zcorp 450 printers. They’re quite expensive but produce very high quality prints. 3d printing is by no means cheap. Even with my friend letting me use his printers just at cost of materials this project has set me back over a grand – and I’m not even printing the whole suit! There are much cheaper printers out there that are meant for home use (the Zcorp ones are huge) but are lower quality and are severely limited in the size of prints they can produce. There are also companies like Shapeways that will print things for you, but they have ridiculous mark ups on the price so generally you only want to print very small things with them.
      Another important factor is your ability to 3d model. Unlike pepakura, 3d prints have to be done in a very specific way in order for them to be printed without errors, and so they’re thick enough without being breakable yet not so thick that they’re heavy and costly.
      So if you have the cash and the 3d modeling know-how, 3d printing is a great method!
