Bolted, Fitted, Forearm Assembly
The forearm is a two part design that features the main outward armor and one singular in-body plate that can be bolted together with included 3D printable bolt (recommend to print the bolts at 100% infill). The bolts are designed to be compatible with an Alan Key but work just as well just using your fingers.
This model was made by mirroring, this means that while the left forearm bolts use the "righty tighty" method, the left side is opposite.
The inside is modeled to perfectly hug a forearm so that it doesn't slide or twist on the arm and sits right above the wrist. This is only possible with the two piece design as opposed to a singular piece that would require an opening that your hand has to be able to fit through.
Strap Fastener Accommodations
Both the Bicep Plate and the Shoulder Guards were designed to fit strap fasteners to all you to secure the armor to what ever you decided to use as an under layer. Much like the forearms, the shoulder guard is curved to fit a shoulder and the bicep is perfectly fitted to a bicep. For the shoulder straps and bicep straps I used these nylon straps and buckles at 15 mm and 20 mm width respectively.

All my models are designed with a focus on hidden seams, ease of assembly, little to no support printing, and accuracy in mind.
