Does anyone have advice on how to connect the pieces? I'm printing this white hatchbox PLA and spray painting it. What you recommend using (epoxy, hot glue, 3D pen wielding, super glue)? I also plan on bringing this to school for a spirit day so I need to make it sturdy enough to survive that ordeal. Thank You

Hi, any chance to get all parts separated? so i can put them in my slicer how i want to?

How much filament/spools will i need to print this?

Can this print on an m3d?

Could you split it into more pieces? like have the ear pieces be one file and have the sides be a few files?

I've just posted a remix separating all the parts

Thanks for doing that, for some reason I couldn't find the backplate stl in the original and it was driving me nuts because I can't use the .thing files.

Does the face mask part actually rotate up?

Awesome work!! Thanks for sharing

Can post a pic of the supports?

For some reason the 4th stl file with the parts the "ears" attatch too is scaled way of.
When I add them in repetier they end up being tiny, how do I know what scale to put them in so they are scaled the same way as the other parts?

Can you post a full helmet please? Thanks!

This is too small to fit an adult head once fully assembled with the rear pieces, the aperture is too tight. Did you scale up or did you have hinge the back?

ABS or PLA? I am about to buy a 3d printer and I want to print this one

Hi, which parts did you print in gold and what did you print in red?

Hi! Does it need painting or can I print each part in its color and sand it? Thank you so much! If you upload it to My Mini factory I will tip you :D

what do you use to connect the pieces I printed them in pla

Very nice, almost perfect fit too. :)

What size head are you to give a scale please ? Thanks

Was support needed for any of the STL files? This is a great print....

I want to print this object, but i would like to know one thing, Just I have to print the .stl files or the .thing too?


only the stl ;)

did you print all the parts bunched together as they are in the pics?

do you need to rescale this for the average head or is the size fine?

You dont need to scale....

awesome, thanks ! I'm gonna start printing this right away ;). One question: what colors did you use for painting? I've tried to find the right red online but there's kind of a big debate about this. yours looks really good though

In the movies its HotRod Red..not sure the gold color. Its the shade most american fire trucks are painted.

To get a metallic smooth finish on ABS or PLA use any emmery based wet/dry sandpaper. Autobody sandpapers tend to work best.
Do one go with 200ish grit dry, then a 2nd go wetsanding with 400-600grit.

Great tip with the sandpaper, thanks very much!
I've almost finished printing my helmet but was wondering if you have any tips on actually connecting them?
Should I use Epoxy? Superglue?
Also, how did you hold the pieces together whilst drying?


You have done a very good paint job.. what is your secret, sandpaper? acrylic paint? varnish? And how should we scale it to fit our head? Thank you in advence.

Did you print these files as-is? Or did you scale them?
