Has anybody tried to print this?

Awesome, I had planned on doing this myself.

I am designing all the details for a full reveal. I like the full shape of your "reveal" attempt (last in pictures), but where it connects to the neck portion, it should look like how you have it for the first photos. (Where the tusks join in, there should be a triangle that remains attached to the lower neck/chin part)

Anyhow, I might attempt to poke holes and make it a screen accurate reveal, inside and out. I am building the Geoffro reveal I paid for, but its not 100% RPF accurate.

Cheers

Hi yes I did the same and bought Geoffros Helmet see link where pics of Geoffros https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2080944 helmet is the first in the row. The helmet lid is way out.
I decided not to continue with printing it but liked his head reveal and will try blend that into the top of my build. My favorite one here is the 1st one listed which is from the ROTJ Cheers Jace

Thanks, man, you rock! :) Folks, download it while it is still available! ;)

Can you provide any instruction on how to print these versions?

Layer height
Print orientation
Supports

For something that is going to use this much filament you really want to cross your t's and dot your i's.

Thank you!

Thanks Tony! That is a good question : ) When I next have a chance I would do something like this to it, see link below
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2937035 It is very time consuming and I have 1000 + model still to upload wich I enjoy mostly rather than breaking them down piece by piece. A lot of larger printers now people just plonk the whole helmet in the centre and let the program fill in the gaps. How ever this is certainly one of my mose favorite models so I will be printing this the next available chance I get ; ) and then I'll upload the spliced pieces. Stay tuned, Cheers Jace
