This project still needs some tweaking but I've uploaded all of the model parts for download. If you make it please post pictures of your completed mask. The distance for the ears is approximately 160mm so use that as your reference for scaling your mask. I've started a blog showing how I assemble the 3D printed parts. The blog can be found here: http://starlordmaskbuild.blogspot.com/

This is my version 0.9 Star Lord mask I am building.
This project was designed with the following goals:

  1. Easy printing with minimal supports.
  2. Parts separated to make painting easier.
  3. Scalable.

If you like my project and feel it is worthy then leave me a tip.

I am currently printing out my updated version to test for fit issues. The new version now includes LED and lens holders for the eyes. The LED models I'm still working on and will be posted later.

Thanks for creating this helmet, as a noob to printing I am never show how best to slice things for printing. This makes it really easy to print. So far I have done the back section and I am printing the canisters and gadgets now. Will post shots when completed.

Can wait to see the completed mask.

Thank you very much. This helmet is great

I'm glad you like the helmet. If you print it post an image.

It seems like some of these things are offset from the build plate a bit. For example, the jaw front seems to be slightly above the build surface, and the eye pieces have a weird configuration as well: http://i.imgur.com/icyl77E.png Layer 1 appears to only be part of the eyes. Is this so that they sit flush, or is this some kind of issue with my configuration?

EDIT: Cura with 0.2mm layer height and 0.18mm first layer. The eyes work properly if I select them and click the "lay flat" setting in the rotate menu. The jaw front doesn't seem to cooperate with that: http://i.imgur.com/8LbFAfG.png

I've printed all of the parts using a raft and did not notice this issue. If I have time I will try to fix this in a future update. Thanks for pointing this out.

No problem. I've been slowly working my way through all the parts, these are the only ones I've noticed that have needed adjustment to be flat. Everything else seems to be working well. When I get it all done I'll be sure to upload a pic of it :D Thanks for this, it's an amazing model and must have been a decent amount of work getting it done!

EDIT: Spoke too soon. Looks like the upper1 and upper2 needed to be dropped down a bit by -0.18mm to hit the first layer as well.

Hey Dude this looks rely sick I am hoping to start printing it in a couple of weeks! Currently I am looking at lighting ideas so I have two questions.
1: When do you think the copy with the led eye slots will be available and how would it work?
2: Do you think this would fit inside the mask given I take it apart and glue it in. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/CHEMION-Unique-Bluetooth-LED-Glasses-Display-Messages-Animation-Drawings-/302095397358?epid=1257052456&hash=item465649f1ee:g:9k8AAOSwYIxX8pIF.

Thanks the mask looks cool and I can't wait to print it.

Here are the answers to your questions:

  1. I'm hoping to have the lighted eyes done by early August.

  2. I believe the batteries and controller would fit in the mask. The only concern I would have is fitting the LEDs into the eyes.

Glad you like the mask. Post images of your completed mask.

where is the top of the mask?

If you look at a picture of Star Lord, there is no top. The top is open and his hair sticks out.

What do you mean by the top of the mask?

What did you use for the lenses. They look great in your pictures.

I used a red tinted ski mask and cut out the lenses from it.

i think minor changes need to be down, i thing the tube that goes to the side of the mask needs to be scaled down somehow it looks like its sticking out too far.

I think you are right but at this point I don't have enough free time to make that change.

Hey, awesome job on this helmet, I'm looking forward to printing it. The only thing I have to say is that I think you forgot to upload the "pills" that go on the sides of the helmet in the grooves on the cheeks. Can you please upload those files as well?

Edit: I started printing the pieces here and realized that in addition to those pills or whatever you would prefer to call them, the eye pieces to fit within the holes in the eye mask are not present either. Based on your pictures you obviously designed and printed these pieces, so you must have the files - can you please post these pieces too? I want to actually complete this print and finish the helmet.

Edit: thanks for uploading them!

Ok last question before I start printing. You say in the details that it is at 160mm from ear to ear but in all 3 modeling programs I have it shows ~185mm from ear to ear on the inside of the model. Is the extra space there for a reason? Where did the 160mm measurement come from?

I will attach an image that shows where I took the measurement in 3D Studio Max.

What slicer are you using and how did you get supports to only be on a few parts. When I open in cura it adds a TON of supports to the parts.

Some of the parts require supports. If you print the full helmet it will require a lot of supports. I am using the default Makerbot slicer.
Which parts are you having problems with?

For example the face only part is showing supports on about 80% of the inside of the mask. On your webpage it only shows 3 small columns of supports. I will try to upload a picture to show when I get back home.

Depending on your build height you may need to tilt the model a little more vertical. Do you have a preview mode with your slicer? Good luck.

I've uploaded all of the images of the model parts on the build plate so others can see the supports they were built with. In case they don't go to my website.

Thank you for uploading this I've been anxious to get started on this project

Come on ... We need The Rest ... Wenn will Print this great Helmet...

All of the parts have been uploaded. Enjoy.

I will upload the other pieces with some basic instructions for sizing by the end of the week.

Yes U are great ... Thanx

Hey, any idea when this will be completed? looks awesome, thanks!

I've printed out my updated version and just need to test the changes I made and to write up instructions for scaling it to fit other head sizes. I'm guessing that I will release it in 3 weeks.

Will all of this fit on a 190x190 print bed?

I believe that most of the parts will fit within that volume. If you have a problem I can create new sliced versions of the part that will fit.

Just FYI I am also super pumped for this. Cant wait. Only like another week or so left!!!

I've been watching this since you first posted it. I can't wait to see the end version. I need this!

Stay tuned!! Hope to have the final changes done to the mask in the next 2-3 weeks. It will include the lights for the eyes. I'm also planning on creating a video series for the build process.

I've started working on version 0.9 with the design fixes I wanted to complete before releasing the model. So stay tuned!!

this is very misleading when the whole helmet has been on here with that pic, but there is only one thing to print. I get it is a work in progress, i suppose im just cranky that i saw the helmet so beautiful; but like a tease its not ready yet.

I'm sorry you are frustrated. I know its been awhile since I posted this project. I just don't have time to work on it right now and don't want to release it with the fit problems it has. If you feel that it is misleading and that I should remove it from Thingiverse I will be happy to do that. I will repost it once I've had the chance to finish it

Comments deleted.

This is a work in progress and I need to make some changes to this design so that it fits better. Currently the helmet is extremely tight around the ears. Also there are some cosmetic changes I would like to make before I release it. In order to post my project I had to include one object that is why there is just the canister.

If you need to print out a Star Lord helmet search for one by Helagak.

Hey, why's only the side canister uploaded? I was really looking forward to printing this!
