Hey all, been lurking here for a while, but finally decided to make a post. I took a crack at making a 3d model of the leg life support hose thingy from all of the TLJ pictures using Jeneyre's pics from NYCC. I think I've got the scaling right, it works for my particular hose. The thing itself is held on with magnets, removing the need to deal with velcro, and allowing for some placement flexibility when sitting, etc.

This is very much a WIP, especially until after TLJ comes out.

awesome! I'd love to see a pic of it printed, if you have one.

So is the magnet glued to the suit leg?

I just have a floating magnet plate on the other side. Might try to lock it down some other time, but it seems okay ther efor now. I also like the flexibility of being able to move the endpoint at will. Here are some more pics, havent gotten to post processing/painting yet, but will this weekend.

That's looking nice. Great job!

One question... Why is the adjustment strap on the front of your suit? It should be on the back. Razz

super, thx for the pic and making the file available.

So it looks like one piece to go inside a hose to make the connection and another donut piece that goes on the other side of the fabric to attach it using a magnet.

What type of magnet are you using on it?

Eh, I was probably drunk at the time, I dunno. It's not fixed there so I can just move it.

Used these. I've bought 2 packs so far, and they've all been that much under diameter, so whatever. I just glue on fabric to all open sides to hold the magnet in place.
