Have you ever tried making a half/half version of each? Kinda like the R.A.M album art?


I didn’t make that and haven’t tried to print it, but I think that’s what you are looking for.

I feel like i need to be high to wear it on my finger lmao

Can you possibly upload solid models of both of your helmets? That would be awesome!

Hi there!

For Thomas's helmet:
^ there should be STEP file in that link. STEP files should work with most CSG programs.
This what I started with. Its not a "solid" model, there is no interior.

For Guy-Manuel's helmet, there are two .IGS files included with the thing files.
These should be NURBs patch geometry files, also usable in most CSG programs.
I don't think these IGES files contain the interior, but honestly its been so long since I loaded them I can't remember.

To make the interiors for these meshes I made poly geometry in Maya that lined up with
the exterior surfaces, and I used "Netfabb private" to merge the surfaces and make everything watertight.
Some people don't like Netfabb but I find it to have the best non-manifold and boolean tools for polygon meshes,
at least out of all the software I've tried.
I made these models 4 years ago, maybe the newer versions of Autodesk Meshmixer can compete with Netfabb at this point.
Please note: Netfabb "basic" does not have these same features I useed in Netfabb "private".

Hope that helps!

This printed wonderfully! I scaled it up a little and I wish I had kept record of how much so I could print Thomas's helmet the same size. Thank you!

Yay! I will make one this afternoon to go with the other! Thanks so much!

btdubs, netfabb cloud always wants to close the inside shell, so the example stl looks closed, but when you slice it, it comes out properly. I'll clean that up at some point, but it never gave me issues.
