    Apr 9, 2011, 2:20 PM - Tron Anon Pepakura Helmet #1

    File is a Anon Helmet Pep File. I spent about 30 minutes unfolding it, if anyone wants to re-unfold it feel free to do so but I feel I did a pretty good job and the current scale should be good, but I'm not sure. If you want a support for the head opening just take the part in the upper left corner above the 2D Development window and add it to the pages. The file is in Letter Size paper, 290mm high. Enjoy. 3D Model from Halomaps courtesy of Advancebo.
    I figure this helmet will make a good base for most of the other Tron Legacy Helmets with what I've seen people do with bondo and clay on pepakura. Enjoy.

    Thank you very much! I have this on my list of projects. in fact if anyone else is doing this costume here is another big help. You should be able to blow this pic up and make the armor fairly easy!

    Wow those texture files will be of great help I did'nt even think of that until you posted them that the texture files could be blown up and used on thin foam sheet for costme construction.

    That's the fail you used normal paper, you must use 110-160 weight cardstock paper, but the recommended is 110 weight.

    Are all helmets comprised of so many pieces? Or is this due to the angles of the helmet?

    The more rounded a helmet the more litle pieces your going to have, it's a toss up between smoothness and ease of build... for instance a Lego Head is much easier to make than an Anon Helmet would be but the Lego Helmet wouldn't look half as nice when it's finished :P

    I have started on cardstock version (slowly due to time constraints) and am happy so far with results, I plan on fibreglassing and smoothing it out eventually so not concerned about seeing too many edges I am a bit perplexed on how I am going to light it and make a see through visor though :S

    I can only think of one way to really do that, vacuforming. Once the helmet has been built and smoothed fill it with plaster and cut it into two halves I would suggest side to side not front to back for the cut, then you can vacuform the 2 halves with Clear PETG that has been dyed black and there you have it. It would be a lot of work but you could also sell some helmets in the process as well.

    i have no idea how to vacuform, sounds like I have to spend more money than I would like, I'll see if there is anyone locally that may be able to do it

    The other way to do it is to make a mold and cast out of clear plastic with a black tinted dye. Vision would probably still be a little blurred but that's another option.

    Thinking of making a vacuum former at home and trying my hand at it, been checking a LOT of video & tutorials, it's still a price/material/time issue but my father is a metal fabrication/engineering teacher, he might be able to help me source some gear and try it out. With the Tron Legacy helmets would it be a good idea to paint the helmet black, vacuum form the plastic over top (tinted) then cut out the view port/face so it still looks black all over, I haven't seen anyone on these forums pull off a good CLU/Rinzler/Anon helmet yet to compare methods with.

    P.S. is there anyone in Australia on these forums who can vacuum form and quote for it?

    I can't find it now but there's a DIY vacuforming video that shows a fully working one build for less than $25 and I think Ben Streeper over at the 405th did a great video of his one being used at home with the help of a little girl (relative I think) so it's definitely something to consider.

    As for vacuforming over a painted helmet it's not a good idea as the hot plastic generally pulls the paint off the item your forming over, you could do a pull of the thin clear stuff and the thich non-clear stuff from the same piece so you can then tint the clear faceplate as you like without havig the rest of teh helmet as weak as the faceplate.

    There is a tutorial on Instructibles for how to build a vacuformer for $30-50, Still if you plan to vacuform the helmet due to the curves of it you will still need to fill the helmet with a material such as plaster and cut it in half one way or the other, other wise good luck getting the plastic off, the plastic you will want to use is Clear PETG I don't know if you can get it in Black Transparent, but the Clear Plastic can be dyed black, which is how Sean Bradley on the 405th makes his visors for the ODST Helmet. Also simple as this.

    Nearly finished my first pep assembly ever and it's this helmet, just wondering I had a lot of trouble get it all aligned, is there an order of assembly for this helmet that improves alignment on assembly?

    The more you do pep assembly the more tricks you develop on how to make it come out better. I remember my first pep I would fold every line to later find out most were uneccessary. Now I don't even make a fold unless It's absolutely necessary. As for alignment just try aligning the numbers as best as possible so it kinda mirrors the opposite and try to just do 1 edge at a time. It'll also help you get a smoother curve especially with this helmet.

    Good Luck & hope this helps.

    I'll see how I go, I scored all the lines before assembly, I think where I went askew was gluing other bits together first then trying to assembly/align bigger pieces, I am going to see how it looks when finished, trim where necessary and if it look ok after some modification I'll still bondo/auto filler over the top. before I do that do recommend any type of resin to harden it?

    Do you have a photo of what the helmet looks like, does it fit well? And any kind of fiberglass resin should work, but you can also use a slow setting smooth on resin.

    I am not finished yet (due to fricking work grrr), I can probably trim and "persuade" into shape for resin application.

    Starting over with the Pep, nearly finished it and I can see where I went wrong with gluing (my very first Pep so was an educational experience).

    gaaahhh, nice to see another Anon around i'll be following this for sure, I too am working on an Anon set up. For my chest plate though, i have an extra black car hood. I'm thinking about cutting it up and using it for this project

    can I have a PDF of the print file for the Anon helmet? so i can build along side you.
