Making King Vader's Iron Man Suit
Over this past summer we had the pleasure of working with the talent King Vader of Wolf Graphic Productions on his latest iteration of his Avengers parody video. A custom sized Iron Man suit was printed and painted over the course of a month leading up to the video being filmed.
Scaling the Suit
To make sure the suit would be a perfect fit, a simple full body 3D scanner was put together using an old Microsoft Kinect. This allowed us to get exact measurements and proportions far more exact that an tape measure would allow. Once the scan was taken, the files were scaled to be the best possible fit to allow for proper movement with minimal gaps as we knew Vader would need to be able to dance in the suit.
Printing The Suit
At 122 pieces and just over 1100 hours of printing time suit was our largest project to date. To save time the parts were split between 8 different printers, cutting the overall time from start to completion to only 12 days.
There's so much more!
