    I'm working on the "soft" parts of the undersuit that makes up the exo-skelleton and muscle enhancing part of the undersuit. By that I mean all those lines that make it look like a space-suit. I took the texture-file and started to vectorize the separate parts.
    My plan is: plot out the parts with my silhouette cameo on a flexible foil and attach it to my base layer (compression underwear). I made tests with it and it works just fine. The file can also be used as a cutting template by hand of course. Here is a quick test shot of a small portion of the final product:

    That would be awesome bro! I own a Cameo also! How tall are you? It would be cool to have the vectors already scaled. I suck at scaling things with using the silhouette program. Well, that's partly in line with not having a good tutorial to go off of. Keep us posted!

    I'm 173cm tall. The scaling part is what worries me as well. But I'll see about that when I get there :)

    I've decided to jump in and help out with the Pep (Foam) conversions as well ;). I'm taking the more tedious route by retopologizing the models by hand instead of letting a program do it. This way I have more control over the model.

    I started with the hip file:

    Left - Original, Center - My Retopology, Right - YerryBatista Poly Reduction

    I could have reduced the poly count even more but it was sufficient enough for a foam unfold:

    I think I'll work on the shoulder parts next

    -- EDIT --
    Added the ZIP file.

    Excellent work bro! That's exactly what I've been looking for! I was gonna do a Unfolds for paper using the retopology that Batista did. But after dropping it into Blender to convert the tris to quads......... I was like, no not happening. As for the upper center back piece there is still parts separated. Which those parts need to be boolean. So yeah awesome work! Thanks Demo!

    Thanks :D Yeah the horseshoe part at the top is still a bit of a mess. I fixed the open edges of the piece mentioned and there are still a couple of open edges but it doesn't effect the Foam unfold. If needed, I can go back and fix the mesh further for paper unfolds.

    The hip file has been updated with the fixed file.

    I've also finished getting the shoulder done:

    Cool, just let me know when you post the new fixed hip file. Checked out the original, not sure if the geometry in the middle of the hip part is good to go. But definitely doable.

    Finished up the groin unfold yesterday.

    I decided to do a test run and build it before I posted the unfold to make sure it was good to go. It's probably one of the more important parts of the Techsuit as it's not covered up by armor. I left the groin as 3 separate sections in the unfold but decided to build it as a single part.

    I think it came out near perfect.

    Got it Commander, I will fix the placement of the foam pieces soon, when we finish drawing the main lines of the suit.

    BTW: It has no instructions, I will add them this week some pieces have to be cut from behind at 45 degree angle and so on. ANY suggestion is will be appreciated.

    We just have half of the main design now, and still we don't know how to paint the hex pattern, CommanderPalmer please throw us some light.

    Wow! That looks fantastic! what did you use to sketch the pattern originally? I see fainter markings showing where you seem to have erased your original drawing...what did you do for that?

    For the Hex pattern, I used a Silhouette cameo to cut out a sort of stencil and I brushed over it with fabric paint. You could also use spray paint if so desired and you want a more uniform pattern without brush variations. CommanderPalmer did something similar, I believe.

    We used Makup pens (white) for the initial markings, I had to keep standing up for about two hours, those lines can be dim or erased with a heatgun, we use then a pencin with fabric paint to do the markings.

    And YES CommanderPalmer is our model and inspiration for this project. <3

    We dissasebled the suit and took more pictures of the patterns, we are also planning to re-draw the patterns with the hexs in the computer and then use the Cameo to cut them, wish us luck.

    If we succeed we will make a tutorial for the whole process, and upload the patterns.
