Hi!

I'm going to start work on a new trex suit soon, and instead of printing
all 20 feet of length and 10 feet of height of the parts for molding, I was
wondering if anyone here was proficient at the large router in the center
of the shop.

I would need to know how big it can actually route, and I can chop up the
model into parts. My plan is to have it routed in high density foam in
parts and brush on melted clay for final detailing and molding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is a huge project and will be
my new more realistic suit for charity events and work.

Thanks!
~Ron

Hi Ron,

I think it should be able to route something that’s about four or 5 ft.². Not sure about the height. Do you have your project 3D modeled yet?

I have the model, but trying to reposition it from an action pose to an
idle standing pose so it is easier to get made.

I have the model finished and scaled. I have to chop up the parts but need
to know what all the router can do, if I have to have no overhangs or
whatever. I’ll be cutting high density foam and coating in melted clay for
detailing.
