This is great man! well done...
Well, i'm new here, so, can i modify it some way to put a ring on the top to make it a keychain?
thanks in advance !

Hey! :)
Glad you like it.
My buddy did this using little eyelet screws, like these:

Just drill out a small pilot hole and screw in the eyelet.
You might need to change your print settings to a higher infill so its strong enough to hold the eyelet.

i see.. nice idea man, thanks. It will probably be even stronger than a little plastic ring :)

How much would this have to be scaled to be wearable?

Depends on how big your head is! ;)

You would also need to modify the interior geometry quite a bit as its not shaped to fit a human head.

Alright, thanks.

Hey, I'm new to 3D printing and tried to print off the one with supports, but it only did the supports, I was wondering what you used to do it, program and settings wise. Thanks

Never mind, I printed a different version and it turned out fine.

I want to print a fully wearable helmet, but don't have too much knowledge of 3dmodelling, can you help me with that? Thank you ;)

No I can't!
But 3d modeling isn't very hard, you should learn how and make what you want

About how many helmets could be printed with 1kg of PLA??

I haven't run the numbers, but at the scale I printed them, they use very little material. Also, they are hollow so that helps. Print time is about 1hr 30min when printed at 60mm/sec using sailfish and the alt-shell Skeinforge plugin.

Do you have a format that can be edited in Inventor?

The original source file from Aaron is NURBS trims. I included an IGES file in the zip. Inventor should be able to open it. Lemme know if it doesn't like it.

Do you have the file for the other helmet as well?

Yep! Didn't have the time to get it online yesterday, but I'll put it up later today. :)
