Does it need support material?

Yeah the helmet does, sorry

My first attempt at support material. Took me a couple tries to get the brim setting right but the supports came off really easily and the two pieces went together perfectly. Just make sure that all of the supports have enough material to bond to on the print surface. Thanks ForgetfulJones!

So i Printed the face perfect .1 and on 30% fill normal speed looks awesome, as for the helmet first try no supports and it failed. 2 try supports and looked perfect when it was done the supports just came right out by pulling them no scrapping or anything. Just glued the 2 together and its a perfect fit. thanks

Hey Bryan, thanks for the comment.
I think it's all about your slicer settings.
It should be putting support material under everything,
my only other idea was to split it vertically and
print 2 halves of the helmet, but there'd be an ugly seam.
Good luck!

Thank you for the awesome Darth Vader Bust. I have printed the bottom with no problems, but the helmet keeps failing. I am using Slic3r to create the G-Code file for my MakerFarm printer. When it prints, it does not provide any support for the front (bill) of the helmet. So instead of making the bridge from one side of the helmet to the other, it just squirts filament in the air. Do you have any suggestions? What am I missing here?
Thank you!
