    Jun 1, 2005, 1:03 AM - UPDATED PRINTABLE ARMOR TEMPLATES - In various sizes #1

    UPDATED 6/25/08 Small Size Armor Added
    Size from 5'-6" down to 3'-4"

    Hello,

    Well, I finally got around to converting my Boba Fett Armor CAD files into standard GIF images that will print out on standard 8 ½” X 11” paper they come in three basic sizes, but I have included scaling factors to cover folks from 5’3” to 6’. For those over 6’ I will be working on an extra large version in the near future. For the time being you can try print the Large Templates at scaling factors of over 100%, but you will have to print out the templates out on additional sheets

    Each Zip file is over 3 MB each, and they each contain 22 files. The armor files consist of 20 8 ½” X 11” pages and 1 layout drawing, some of the armor pieces have to be printed on multiple sheets and then spliced together. I have included witness marks on these sheets to facilitate matching up the pieces. These files are full size and do not require the “Fit To Page” print option, simple print at 100%.

    The 22st file is a printer test page that contains a 5” scale in both the horizontal and vertical, I’d recommend printing this page before attempting to print the templates to verify that your printer will not distort them. Just print it out and measure both scales they should equal 5” each, if not then check your printer options

    My bandwidth is limited and with the size of these files it won’t take long to exceed it, please be patient they will be online for some time

    See the Jango section for downloadable Jango armor templates.

    If you have any questions or comments please let me know

    If you are 1,87 then the Large printed at 100% would suit you fine.. i don't think than an inch or so back and forth doesn't make that whole lot of a difference.. it's the entire image that people look at.. not the details..

    (unless they are one of those really picky people... the kind that looks down on the FX Stormtrooper helmet and think it looks like crap just because its 10% to big... <sigh> )

    Hello,

    The large templates should do fine.

    I should point out that the sizes listed above are merely just guidelines since everyone is different, there is no such thing as a standard size human, some have long legs other may have a long waist. You may have to try various sizes before you find the one that best suits your body proportions. Unfortunately there are no black and white answers. Jango is even harder to fit, the size that works for the upper body in all likelihood will not work for the legs.

    I have checked the online files and they appear to working, but you are not the only one having difficulty. The files are quite large 4000 X 5000 pixels so that may be giving you software some problems. What program are you using?

    Is anyone else having difficult viewing the templates? I can try to creating a lower resolution version if that is the problem.

    Thanks guys, hopefully everyone finds them useful.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    I have created a set of low res templates of the large size for those having trouble with the full size version above, these are about ½ the size. The trick with these is that when you print them you WILL have to use the “Fit to Page” printer option. Also these templates assume a ¼” boarder, so if your printer does boarderless printing you will need set the printer’s boarder option to .25”.

    http://home.comcast.net/~wizardoffli...LG_low_res.zip

    Please let me know if these work and I will put together a set for the small and medium sizes as well.

    Alan

    darkskywalker: These have been in the works for a while just finally got around to breaking them down into a printable version. Too many other projects.

    BobaFettSlave_1: Excellent, glad to here they are working.

    Jades Dark Heart:
    The files are 8” X 10.5” at 200 DPI so they are huge, but they should print out on a standard sheet of paper. If not let me know what your system is doing and I try to make some adjustments.

    Hey WOF, I wonder if you have seen this. I dont know if its you selling them, so I thought i would let you see this. I know we arent supposed to post live auctions, but in this case i think it would be ok.

    Jades Dark Heart: Change the resolution from 72 pixels/inch to 200 and that will reduce the templates down to 8" X 10.5".

    WOW! No not me, I have been doing that for the folks here for FREE.

    Its a shame people will try to make a buck off the awesome and extremely generous work of a member here. We should let them know how we feel.

    The original image was the image straight from the top post, except coloured it. It's a shame people have to ruin the whole spirit of this forum and hobby by making profit off generous, talented people.

    This is no different than recasting. It is stealing someone else's work. If the auction does not come down, there will be a banning.

    Guys,

    Sorry to mislead you. I am the owner of the auction, however I am not stealing his fine work. I have in fact created a CAD template that was in the works well before this was posted. (see above) This thread just created a stir of making a few extra dollars online using the work I had created. I will distribute the CAD file to anyone who wants it for free, but the auction on line is for a scaled plotter printout (in other words, not 22 pages) of the armor. Again, its not traced from his work. In fact, I created the armor I also listed on ebay based on the drawings I created. I feel ashamed that this is how I must be conveyed on my first few days on this board. I am a digital arts major trying to make a little extra cash, thats all. I used the image above as placeholder until I got home, and when I saw that someone noticed it I immediately changed it to the actual drawing. Sorry for the confusion and I apologise sincerely. Please accept it, members, and of course wizard.

    -Josh
