I remixed this from the Low Polygon Printable Mask for a few reasons:
- So it would fit my head (by removing the sides)
- So I could easily attach ribbon to hold it on my head (added side holes)
- So I can drink with it on (added a vital straw hole in the mouth :) )
No supports are needed - all the overhangs should be gentle enough for most FDM 3D printers.
I have included source (STL) for 3 variations:
- One with ribbon holes and straw hole
- One with just the ribbon holes, in case you don't appreciate that Blue Steel look
- One without any holes - a blank canvas for your own mods
Massive thanks to kongorilla for the original design, and to Gromfrog for making the STL.
I finished my mask with a few post-processing steps:
- Hot glue gun to fill some minor splitting (though I have since discovered "dremel friction welding" that would have been slightly better)
- 24hr acetone vapour treatment, though it didn't seem to have an effect, and I ran out of time to try again
- 1 rather heavy coat of gold spray paint
- Foam pads inside help the mask sit correctly on my face
- Attached ribbon ties
I printed ABS on my Pangu i3 with 0.3mm layers at 30mm/sec and no fan, rectilinear (fast) infill at 15%. It took about 6 hours to print.
There is some minor delamination on the sides, under the nose, and across the mouth and eyebrows. I blame the low temperature in my print room, though it could well be a calibration issue with my printer. Because i printed without fan, there are some minor stringy bits inside the mask at the top of the eye slots, where the slope of the overhang was at its greatest on this model.
