Well, with the 3D printing done, we've assembled the individual pieces. We also put in a little bit of elbow grease, sanding and smoothing the surface across the joints and the helmet as a whole. Next on the agenda is adding accessories and then painting!
We've started 3D printing! Our printer isn't capable of printing the helmet at full size, so we've broken it down into eight smaller sections. Once the printing is complete, we will do a test fitting of the parts.
We are making some progress. Using FreeCAD, we completed the initial designs of the helmet shell. Next up... 3D printing!
