Full Scale Stormtrooper Helmet (wearable)

Recommended Posts

robert. don't make that 3d printed helmet.

 

it is not a good enough file to join the 501st.

at least i would not do it.

 

just look at the makers on this thread.

making your own will cost you hundreds more, maybe eve thousands more.

Hey Vern.

 

Yeah, from what I've read I kinda guessed that the 3d printed helmet won't make the 501st cut, but I'm interested to see how it would turn out.

 

I've been in touch with RS Propmasters but I'm still thinking about building my own - always been a built not bought chap....

 

Might change my mind when it all goes wrong..... ha ha ha

Nothing to add. ;) If you're wanting to join the Legion, RS is a very viable option!

 

If you want to test your mettle with the 3D printer... Have fun with it. LoL

Do it, just for the fun of it. It may turn out okay.

But for costuming/legion wise... What the others said ;)

I've worked a lot with 3D printing and I honestly don't think anything that's printed would be comparable to a vacuum-formed product. On the other hand, I could see 3D printing be excellent to produce a form for vacuum-forming or molding, especially with some touch-up, or to produce some of the finicky little details that are hard to come by normally.

back to topic.

please do not clone this sculpt.

 

if we are awash with low quality we will all lose out.

 

we must maintain high standards or we don't belong in the legion

Isnt the goal of all this to have fun?

+1 on that.

 

Maybe my comments have been misconstrued. I wouldn't use the 3d printed helmet as a part of my armour, I never said I would. As far as I'm concerned I'm printing it as I bit of fun and for comparison.

 

No doubt there may be a point in time where a 3d printed armour will be of an accepted quality.

 

Please be assured that any armour or helmet I make will be scratch built and, obviously, I will document this.
