Summary

After printing part of the helmet from the design I remixed this from, I weighed the colossal support structure and it weighed in at a whopping 140g!!!! I decided to tweak the design slightly, removing the top of the helmet from the part of the shell below it, meaning it only needed a minimal structure under it to make it print nicely!

This design saved me approximately 9 hours print time and 140g of filament (as I'd already printed part 2) , but if you used this design for both part 2 and part 3, it would save you 18 hours and 280g of filament!!!

To help with scaling this for a good fit, I've also included an assembled 3D file of the helmet - simply scale this until the measurements will fit your head, and then use the multiplication factor (i.e. if you scale it to your measurements as a whole, and find it to be 1.05x scale) to scale the individual pieces, or in Cura just right click and press "Seperate into Parts" to dismantle it.

NOTE: Don't make my mistake, check that your head will fit through the hole at the bottom, not just inside!

How did you design this, I'm thinking of designing a helmet on my own

This is just a remix I did of an existing helmet to save substantial amounts of time and plastic on support materials. You'd need to learn to use a 3D modelling package of some kind to create your own objects.

What is the visibility like (out of the helmet)?

if I pay $70 can I buy it (full or pieces of the product) from you

I had to modify files 7 and 8 due to an unexpected overlapping in the models. The lower section of the visor where it connects to the cheek was phasing (for lack of better words) through the back face. Simplify 3D was leaving a large unprinted section that would have probably failed the rest of the print. I smoothed out the issue in blender and I was good to go. I will check back in when the print is finished (should be a few days from now) to let you know how it turned out. Great model and thank you for uploading, I've been waiting a very long time to have one of these in my collection :)

That's a bit of an odd one, I wonder if the files had some kind of issue unpacking as others have printed the helmet without such issues.
Credit for the helmet itself goes to the guy that uploaded it originally - this was a support-reducing remix :)

Can you post a file where the pieces in file 2-3 are seperate so i dont have to print supports for the visor

Apologies, I missed this comment as I get loads of notifications for the Thing being Liked or Collected.
I will try to at some point, but I felt the amount of support needed on this part was fairly inconsequential, especially vs the support on the main dome originally!

How much PLA did you used to complete an entire helmet ? :D

Less than 2kg, using 3 shells and 20% fill.

I made edits to the original files part way through to reduce support materials required though so YMMV

Hmm.. I people talking about parts 13 and 14..I just downloaded this, and there is no 13 or 14. Also seems to be missing the other half of the respirator thing that goes on the front..? There's a scout_trooper_helmet_face_plate_02.stl, but no 01.. as far as I can see. Anyone else getting this or is it just me?

Can someone clarify the supports that are needed for 13 and 14? The print time goes up by 10 hours when I add supports, and that just doesn't sound right

Which parts are they? I'm on my phone and can't check the parts right now. Fairly sure no supports were necessary after I cut the back pieces of the dome

The instructions on the main page say to add supports for parts 13 and 14, which appear to be the visor

Appear to be numbers 9 and 10 on my file numbering (I didn't think I'd changed the numbers!)
They will need some support structure, but your figures do sound excessive! Have you got supports set to a high density or something?

I am printing at a pretty high resolution.
I have another issue....I have attempted to print part 15 like 3 times and I can't get it to print correctly. Any advice?

Which part is 15? You've caught me away from the computer again

Looks like maybe the nose and where the visor connects

I sort of started from the end of the 12 files. The two smaller files, then 10,9,8... 7 is on the printer today. I didn't scale it, it will be on the shelves with all the other Star Wars stuff. Looks great so far. Can't wait to get it assembled and start on airbrushing.

Did you finish it dude?

i finished the printing, then left the parts sitting around. They have been glued together and i have done some filler and primer and sanding to get all of the seams to disappear. I didnt scale it and it fits my head just fine. still have more sanding and two more seams to work on.

In progress shots in the Makes section would be cool ;)
Mine's still multicoloured and unprocessed! I've welded it together with a soldering iron mostly, but broke a couple of bits so need to print part-pieces to fill the holes

There ya go Steve. A few pics of it from right after printing and holding it together with tape, then one with it glued together, in primer and maybe some filler, I don't recall at that stage. It's sort of lumpy mess right now as I try and find time to get back to sanding the seams back down.

Comments deleted.

Possibly stupid question but it you finished this up well enough, would it be 501st accepted?

I'm not sure how exacting the 501st Legion is to be honest, it may be worth contacting them with a link to this and ask?

I believe the original file (see 'Remixed From') says it's a resculpt of a game file, so it should be pretty accurate

default size fits a normal head?

Fits my head... but I had brain surgery... do I still have a normal head? lol

Adult male without a pumpkin head, fits me without scaling.

Measure your head and scale to suit, bear in mind the hole at the bottom is smaller
