This is a Remix of the chestburster, I did not make the model. I just added a hole in the bottom and modelled an attachment to fit with a gopro chest mount.

The original model is from MustangDave and this piece is a remix from Geoffros "Alien Chestburster Halloween prop"

The gopro part that is going in to the alien is a little smaller than the actual hole in the alien.
I made it so to make the alien a bit easier to remove. (like when having the chest mount under your shirt and you want to put a jacket on. you can just take the alien off, leave the mount on, and then zip up your jacket)

Just use some tape to build up the thickness of the gopro part and the alien will fit just fine :D

Hi - not sure if it's Simplify being funny but it seems like there's a big gap between the bottom of the insert and the go-pro clip mount. Right at the base of the cylinder there's a couple of mm gap in there.

I'm not sure what you mean ? A gap like there is no material there or some other type of gap ?

I'm seeing the same thing, Straight into simplify 3D where the peg meets the clip there is a void. I had to go into meshmixer to fix it.

I'm trying to upload screenshots so you can see what I'm talking about.

It's difficult to show you without pictures but basically when I try to slice it and ultimately print it there's a gap underneath the cylinder that joins to the go-pro clip itself. I've tried it in a few different programmes and it's the same result. If you slice it then have a look at the inside near that join hopefully you'll see.

Very, very good!

thank you :D

Did you use a factory made GoPro buckle, or did you print one?

Never mind...I now see that the other file is the buckle!!!!

I hadn't even looked at it yet. My apologies. :)

Awesome. Thank you!

I'll be printing this in a couple of days, along with the GoPro mount.

One final question...what color did you use to paint this? It looks pretty close to the color from the movie!!!

Thank you again!

I printed the Alien with 0.1 layer height. Sand papered it a little and Then used an airbrush and waterbased color to paint it. I mixed the color myself (from white, black, yellow , green and red ) it took som Time to get the right shade though :p good luck with the print :)

Okay, excellent. I'm not that advanced with finishing yet, so I'll try to get a good mix with acrylics then brush it on after covering the whole thing with a thin later of two part epoxy to smooth it out.


Now I just need to pick out a Nostromo shirt to tear up and cover in fake blood...

Sounds great ! And feel free to post some picture under "makes" once it's finished , I would Love to see the results :D
