Wanted to work on openscad more so I decided to make a replica Deadmau5 helmet. This is dimensionally accurate to the official specs released by deadmau5 himself. I'd like to be able to stick a LED inside at some point because I think anything can have a LED in it apparently.


With this size you shouldn't need support unless you want since the bottom is flat and should be enough to build on. I have printed the one color completely hollow with no supports in PLA on my reprap and the pictured print is on a makerbot in ABS with 3 perimeters and 10% fill (no support).

Scale up as desired and the openscad file is in mm but the numerical dimensions are in inches from the official dimensions since apparently deadmau5 isn't an engineer.

I attempted to print this, without success. I'm completely new to 3d printing as well, which doesn't help.

My splicer software kept taking out some of the ears and the face, and I don't know enough to add supports in yet.

I agree since you have the actual specs could you scale it?

could you cut it scale it up and cut it into individual segments so that I could print a full-size helmet up?

I dont have access (or the knowledge) to a 3d modeling program to do all that but I do have access to a printer. So I would really like your help with this

I'm not sure how practical it would be due to the actual size of the helmet (the ears alone are 13" in diameter alone) but I could give it a shot. I'm not that experienced in cutting up parts to fit a build volume though.

thanks, but if you haven't started yet please don't bother (Im just going to find the parts in a couple stores in my area)
