This is a remix of the life size Iron Man Mark III Helmet by MIPRESIDENTE. It just isn't going to fit on my print bed, so I'm in the process of cutting it into bite-sized chunks. The first step of that was to separate some of the combined parts.

These are the same parts as in the original file. They've just been separated from one another into individual files. I've tried to put these in the best print orientation, but you'll want to double check this for your own printer. Print the earpiece twice.

I'm also cutting it up into smaller chunks because, well, its still too big for my printer. If there's interest, I'll post those files as well once I'm done with them.

Thanks to MIPRESIDENTE for the original model.

I don't know if you're still supporting this but I am unable to slice a majority of these files and repair techniques I have attempted have not worked. Using Slic3r Prusa Edition 1.39.1

Did you guys move "backplate" or did you just print with support?

Which files are included in helmet4 from the original post? After printing for 3 hours I noticed that there was no support rendered for one of the parts on that file and it fell off mid-print.

All of the parts from the original file should be present here as separate pieces

Question, so is this wearable?

You can make it wearable.

A lot of the files like MainRearPlate seem to be damaged when opening them in Slic3r Prusa Edition. If you also have that problem use https://service.netfabb.com/service.php to repair the files.

How did you guys print faceplatetop? No matter how I turn it, it just barely has contact to the bed.

In cura, select the object, click the rotate button and select lay flat. That is what I did and I got a great print. I also scaled mine down, dont know if you are or not.

I have not printed this yet. I'll have a new printer in a few weeks large enough to do it and this is top of my list. I suspect the best way to do it is face up with support. That'll be the way I try it.

and on the head of the 60 cm dress is it?

I am having some issues. The top helmet doesn't at all connect with the topface. its like the top helmet is smaller or something. I tried sanding it a bit and it just wont fit. i ended up destroying the tophelmet portion and now am printing out another one. is anyone else having this problem? also is there a video showing how to put it together because i got everything fitting perfect accept for the top helmet to the top face.

I'm having similar issues. It looks like the some parts are missing a groove to guide the assembly. I figured out all the orientations and put it together with duct tape to just to see the assembled puzzle, but I think it'll take some careful carving with a dremel to make a clean fit.

ive got a da vinci jr with a small print bed so im interested in the small cuts please. also would u or do u know of anyone that would be willing to scale and cut a red hood file i have? been building a comicon outfit but im new to 3d printing and have had little success in doing it myself.

Does anybody know approximately how long this will take to print? Thanks. (First time using a 3D printing)

It's VERY dependent on your printer and settings. No one's going to be able to give you a truly accurate estimate. If it helps you at all, I would estimate for ME, on my Ultimaker 2+, I could print all these parts out in 40 hours. 0.3mm layer heights, 3 shells, 55mm/s. That's completely off the cuff though.

Thank you kind sir for saving me a ton of work! Downloading now and will print the 1 piece I'm missing from the original files first...


Have you got the smaller chunks at all? Getting my printer soon but think these parts are going to be too big for mine.


I have most of it done. I haven't had a chance to check them for errors or printability so I haven't posted them.

hi there mate

A million thanks for the files, they are amazing (Still busy printing them).
Just one quick question though.
Do you have any pics of how the faceplate hinges and servo/motor mount fit?

I do not have such a picture, sorry.

any closer with the smaller chunks?

Does this one need the same scaling to be applied? For example, my head's 16cm across so the pieces I already printed from the other set of files are 16x (1600%). Will these match? I have the faceplate and jaw done, need to print the 'helmet' back parts separately.

Answering my own question in case anyone's interested: It's scaled exactly 16x in relation to the original parts. Great heads size alike I guess :)

You mean that this is 16 times smaller than the file it was remixed from? Why was the size changed? I'm confused.

No, it is already scaled UP from the original 16x. The original was shared in a tiny scale on purpose, so you could measure how many cm across your head was, and apply that number to the scale factor in your slicer, and get something that would fit your head near-exactly. the scale that these files are in, just happen to have been scaled up the exact same amount that I scaled the originals up for my own head. I'm recalling this from memory though, as it's been a year since I've had to touch it (look at the original post dates).

What "original" are you talking about? This is a remix from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:260152 The helmet front I printed there fits a 24 " head. What are you comparing to? Is this the same size as https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:260152 from which it was cut from?

Iron Man Mark III Life-size Helmet

When I separated this from the original file, I made no changes to the size of the parts nor any other modification. Loaded in Cura, it's a full-sized helmet. Whether or not it fits your noggin will vary.

Dude I don't know this was a year ago. Just pop the stuff in your slicer and compare the sizes at this point. I'm not going to be any more help if my original reply didn't clear it up for you.

just thought id say something I've printed the parts turned out nice each part did but during the put together process i had to sand ALOT where the top face plate meets the top of the helmet just to get it to fit right (again the prints were in great shape) and where the left side of the helmet meets the back of the helmet theres about a half inch gap that I'm not really sure how I'm going to fix. Has anyone else had these problems with this build????

yes i have had an issue with the helmet top and the face plate. i tried to sand but it still didint fit right. maybe it needs to be scaled but then the other parts wont fit it. do u have a video of how they come together? please if u can help me showing me what u sanded.

I know this helmet has been built successfully from the original file. I didn't make any modifications to the parts except to separate them from one another so they could print individually. Were the parts at the edge of your build plate? I know I've had issues with other builds where I was at my maximum build size and the parts didn't fit right. I had to rotate the part to fit better in the build volume.

na mine worked fine the pieces just didint fit.

Thank You so much for the downloads! I am getting a small error on the "Faceplate.stl" file with a non-manifold edge and I was wondering if you could repair it? I attempted to fix it in blender, but just made it worse. Other than that I have experience no other major issues.

I've made repairs on this file and uploaded. Let me know if that works.

It'll take me a couple of days to get to it but I'll make the attempt.

Were you able to find and repair the file? Sorry for being a pest but I really need this to finish the helmet

My apologies, I haven't gotten to this yet. I work 12 hour shifts on the night shift so I'm running a bit ragged at the moment. I'll have Mon-Tues night off and, hopefully, I'll be able to dig into this.

Thank You so much for the repair!!! Printing it right now!

Hi, thanks for uploading, which pieces require supports?

You'll have to test it out. This cut is too big for my print bed and I haven't finished testing the smaller cuts.

I've just realized I left a part out. Its now included in the files as "Faceplatetop"

please can you upload the JawComplete again
thank you

Done. let me know if it's not working.
