    Oct 25, 2005, 3:53 PM - Gauntlet blueprints #1

    Well after some head scratching and searching the reference
    material here are the draft blueprints for the left gauntlet and
    rocket. Once I am satisfied with the draft Ill start working on
    the templates.

    As always take a look and let me know what you all think

    Alan

    UPDATED JULY 3rd 2007!!!

    Here they are, ready for downloading. If you have any questions or comments please let me know.

    I really want to give a very big THANK YOU! to MOJO-Fett for all of his help and encouragement with out it would have taken another 6 months before I managed to get motivated enough to finish them. He has done a great job of organizing and prototyping these templates, making them much easier to use and understand.

    One thing to note: These templates DO NOT take into account material thickness. With that said if you use a thin material such as the 1mm FOAMEX as in the prototypes you really dont need to worry about it. But if you start using anything over 1/16 make sure that you account for the extra material during your build.

    These are set up to printout on standard 8.5 X 11 paper. Just set Acrobat to print the limits of the printer and they will print out full size and you are ready to go.

    Left Gauntlet

    These are for the folks over across the pond. They are in the A4 paper size format. So you dont have to worry about templates print out all messed up. Just set Acrobat to print to the limits of the printer and they will print out full size and you are ready to go.

    Looks great(As usual) The armor templates you made worked great(easy to scale based on hieght) i rescaled them for my daugters Boba costume and it is turning out great. I'm anxiously awaiting the templates. Keep up the great work.

    Thank you, glad to hear that they worked out so well. Do you have any pictures you can post? I'd love to see the results.

    I think these templates are going to be a bit more envolved than I would like them to be, but hopefully I can get it right.

    You are the man! Scratch-built is definately the way to go and your templates are idiot-proof! Just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work that you put into these designs. Can't wait to see the finished product. If you need a "beta-tester" let me know!

    These look awsome. Would you happen to be making some for Jango's gauntlets also?

    The Jango gauntlet are next on the list, actually they have already been started, but I have nothing worth posting yet just a bunch of construction lines.

    Ok, I'll bite, what's the challenge?

    Click Here for picks using Wizards templates scaled for a 6 year old
    Dude thanks again for your dedication to this. I am going to continue on with a Jango for her for next year(maybe some conventions also,We'll see)
    Hope I didn't break any rules by posting a web page instead of pictures but I couldnt see chewing up 14 screens of hig res pics when some people won't want to see them

    Great Job Alan! The prints look great. I'm
    sure it will become very helpful for all the fetts who are
    interested.

    Wizardofflight>> Well the challange is to do the gauntlet schematics in 3D in AutoCAD. (or similar) Once that is done they can very easily be scaled to fit anyone.

    First I have updated the drawings above base on some feedback and additional details were added also I fixed some of the proportions, which were off just a bit. They are not done yet, but they are getting close

    Zerovisibilite

    That armor looks great! Can’t wait to see it finished. Please let
    me know when you have it complete. Posting links isn’t a
    problem at all.

    Boba Swede

    AutoCAD 14’s 3D capability is not what it could be, nothing like
    Lightwave or 3D Max, but below is the wireframe of another
    project that I am working on. Actually the hard part with the
    gauntlets will be breaking them down into templates and
    coming up with assemblies that make sense and can be
    accomplished with standard hobby tools. Scaling will be
    handled just like the armor templates. The gauntlet “rocket”
    will be the toughest challenge to break down.

    Thanks for the feedback, if you see anything that looks tweaked just let me know.

    Alan

    Hello,

    Its been a bit since the last update, spent last week in the sunny south on vitiation, a very nice break from rainy Seattle. But I have not been idle, I have finished the draft drawing for the right gauntlet. The flat patterns have been started as well.

    So, take a look at the first post for the new drawing and let me know what you think of it.

    I may never finish the 3D model but here are the orthos for the studio scale version.

    Nice! If you ever finish that one, would you do the four seat version as well?

    Well, now that you mention it I did take a shot at the Quad a few years ago. Take a look;

    But now that the studio scale drawings are done I'll need to update these.

    Alan, did you make that Buck Rogers Ship? I have a 3D Max model of it if you need it. I am only a novice, but I use 3D Max 4.

    I finished the orthos (in the links above) from a casting of the studio model so they are pretty close to the real thing. I did some clean up from the original because the casting was distorted. I never got back to the 3D model, I had planned on building a copy of the studio model, but I haven't gotten back to it. I'd be interested in seeing your 3D Max model, I have 3D Max 4.26, if possible you can send it to wizardofflight@comcast.net Thanks

    Well, my model is nowhere near as detailed as yours. I was probably one of the first things I ever made in 3D Max 1.2.
