This is just an update, as I postponed this project further until life started to take off in other areas. I am still planning to create the whole suit, but needed to make profit first with my own product.
So, I have been working on a consumer electronic prototype. I patented this product design and I am finalizing design and fabrication before we can find investors! This way I have funding to make this suit entirely and in much better materials. I also have been improving my CAD design capabilities, learning programming, and making great connections in industry. I have learned so much in the manufacturing industry, started a company, work two jobs, and have freelance clients all the time.
Things are busy, but progress is sure!

It has been a very busy month with my job, but I have made some great preparations for this weekend's Comikaze event! We will be at the Vocademy booth (the largest one) which is where I work teaching 3D CAD and 3D printing. Here are some updates, where I am making final housings for shocks and electronics in the newer shoe prototype. Also, I built a large 2x3' light box display with Acrylic, DIY LED panels, and roadbox top/ bottom from my own original design from scratch.

I have been sanding and painting on the new custom skeletal armor design! One great coater before primer on 3D prints is called XTC. It works good to fill in all the printed lines on the plastic first. Also the renderings are pics from the CAD model of the foot designed in Fusion 360. The blue pieces are actually waterjet cut pieces of Aluminum that overlap at each joint along the sides.
