It's the ghost in the machine the servo does has some noise to it. It's usually the ones used in RC cars etc. So that's the sound you're hearing

Update 04-02-2017

Hi guys

Time for a little status update.

I'm currently working out of town, and will be doing so for the remaining period of February. I hope to get started on the filling, sanding and assembly as soon as I get back home.

But for now, here's a couple of pics of how the suit is starting to take form:

The back, completed:



The front, completed:



The big picture



The hips and legs are all that remain to be printed. I will start again when I return.

I hope you like it and thanks for looking

I now have envisioned a super hero parody movie where the project ran out of money half way and the hero is running around in half armour half tack suit.

So you printed the suit in corresponding colour, only to cover with filler and paint it the same same colour... hmm.

Don't take my statement the wrong way just could help but point out that your purchase of red filament is a mote design criteria. Great work.

It's not the same color, it's black and fluorescent red

The filament color wouldn't matter since it has to be sanded and applied with filler, else the structure would be too rough. The red/orange was what I had in stock at the time, so pure coincidence. I wrote that in the first post

Cool build. You tired of sanding yet? I love 3D printing things, just not the post print work involved to get rid of the print lines.

Looking forward to the final assembly!

Thanks glad you like it!

Well the sanding takes time, but I'm using a multi tool to do it, so it's okay, the pain is waiting for the filler to dry

Update 22-04-2017

Hey guys


Time for a small update, just to let you know, the project is still at a go.

I've been having some issues with the primers and fillers I've been using, mainly causing cracking in the jointed sections as well as cracking of the paint.

Here are some pics to show you:


Here I've used polyester filler along with a plastic primer, now from a far it looks okay, but if you take a closer look you can see that the joined sections of the parts have cracked through the filler:



I then sanded some more, switched the filler with a glass fiber enhanced filler and the spary filler with a more professional one from Motip, hooping it would be stronger, and keep from cracking.



Now after that I got careless and tested out the black lacquer spray paint on the chest, not making sure I was finished with the fillers, I then had to sand some of it down and reply more filler... Now comes the epic fail.. The paint was acrylic, causing the filler to crack!





Now what has my stupid *** learned from this? RTFM!

So my work is still ongoing with the chest, having to make sure I sand down all the black paint, reapply filler and primer, in order to get to the finishing line

More pics to come as soon as I've finished fixing my epic fail

Thanks for looking!

Update 27-04-2017

Hi Guys



So I've "almost" finished the chest. I've added the right color scheme, still need to fix minor cosmetic issues, but other than that, this is pretty much it

Black paint added:



Preparing for the red fluorescent, with the yellow filler, it kinda looks like a bumblebee





Red color added:



And done, as you can see, I need to remask and reapply black paint to get perfect edges around the red areas, I should have started with the red, after finding out that if there is a darker color below, it will be visible trough the florescent paint, oh well, I guess it's good to learn something new every once in a while







Started on the hands, the right one is already sanded and prepared to be primed



Hope you like it, and as always, thanks for looking

Update 02-05-2017

Hey guys


So I've now finished one of the hands and wanted to show you guys how it looks

Testing and aligning the glove:





Repulsor added:



LED light:



Final testing:







So after some burn marks aligning the fingers, making them stick with hot glue while my hand was inside, I've finished one of them, and am pretty happy with the result.

Hope you guys like it too, thanks for looking

Update 10-05-2017

Hey guys


So I've now finished both hands/gloves and was going trough different ideas on how to fill them up and make them bendable (Cheeps behave yourself! ), and at the same time have the option to make the fingers "fix" in different positions.

Then the obvious occurred to me cut off my hands at the wrists, and stuff them inside on a serious note lol, I thought I might as well print an articulated hand and stuff it inside. Credits for the design goes to bqLabs.





After some refitting and very careful, but evil force, I managed to fix this beauty inside my right glove:



Here you can see the difference it makes; The left glove is with the hand inside, the right one without:



That't it for now, thanks for looking "Iron suit" says "Peace out!":
