Eagle Mask by ThreeForm Oct 15, 2012

Featured Thing!

Description

The Eagle Mask was designed for ThreeForm performers at Maker Faire. Now you can print it at home for Halloween or other events. This version has been redesigned for extrusion printers that lack soluble support material. A version with a support piece has been added for increased reliability. It has wall thickness of 2mm in the thin areas and 4mm in the thick areas. It occupies two cubic inches of volume. A small ThreeForm logo has been added on the cheek area, not shown in the renderings.

I closed the gaps on the cheeks and forehead because they are nearly horizontal, and won't print well without support material.

Just use a Dremel to cut out the recessed areas to make the gaps.

Is there a design like the one in the first picture? With the gaps on the cheeks and the forehead?

Instructions

Scale it, print it out, and fasten with an elastic string.

This mask was designed from scan data of a young woman with a 5.35" temple width. The design is somewhat forgiving, but it is better to have it oversized than undersized. I recommend scaling it up for your own temple width, plus 1%. A flexible (and easily paintable)SLS nylon version is available on Shapeways here: Eagle Mask - shapeways.com/model/734630/eagle-mask.html

Two other lightweight mask designs are also currently available:

A new version with a support piece has been added. Be sure to smooth the contact points after support removal.

you could print it flat. then use hot water to make it face shaped.. this process is way faster than printing it upright.
also it produces a stronger part.. (layer orientation)

Very cute. Absolutely love it. Can't print it though, keeps falling over just before it joins the two halves together, even with a 8mm brim, and skirt. Any chance of some support down the back.

If you print on blue tape, then clean the tape first with isopropyl alcohol - this will increase sticiness by a factor of 10X and you can print 10X as high before it will fall over. Also make sure your bed is close enough to nozzle so first layer is squished slightly into the tape.
