3D printing a Mandalorian Helmet. I’ve learned several ways not to make one of these things.
Helmet 1 (fail)
House of fail. I made is in about 2 hours out of card board and fiber glass. It works, but looked awful. The helmet took me about 15 minutes to make.
Hamlet 2 ( Helmet for Ants)
The STL’s can be found there created by Jake Stayton. I printed this one just to see what I was going to get myself into. A few downsides.
One way to small, two so many peaces, 3 putting it together is a hot mess.
My friend Jacob also knows as the “Cosplay Repair man” his site can be found here gave me some ideas. One reslice the stl in to better peaces. Two size it correctly for for own head (No guessing math time.) This brought me to helmet 3
Helmet 3 (So close)
Creator : Alex Payne
Everything printed out very well and better then expected. But I make a mistake in the slicing process. When I tried on the Helmet it was still too small. The cheeks on the helmet. If the checks in the model where in as far as they where it would of fit. This Helmet is not a total loss, it will fit other just fine. I still plan to finish it in order to create a mold.
Helmet 4 (Woot!)
