    Feb 17, 2014, 7:57 AM - Marvel Now Captain America Helmet - 3D Model/Print - Master Done! Loads of Pics #1

    Hey guys,

    So I've been working on a Marvel Now Captain America helmet for my buddy Mike, aka PunisherMike for a couple months now. I started with a 3D model of his head, that I built from some pictures of his life cast. I then modeled a helmet to fit his head, and rough proportions.

    I've since printed it at work, on our 3D printer, and have since been fusing the pieces together, filling, sanding, priming and sanding. Rinse and repeat. The final helmet will be cast in tinted urethane rubber with the A and Wings done by brushing in some aluminum powder into the mold recesses for those parts.

    Chin cup will be cast in 45d resin to give some flex, but still remain "tough" and "guard-like"

    Here are some pics that will take you through a visual journey to where I'm at now..

    3D rendering...





    Printing begins...

    Where I'm at so far...

    The helmet master is finished! Will be molding this up within the next couple weeks. So stoked!

    Oh yeah, the chin cup has been ordered also and will arrive soon so I can master it and mold it.

    Here are some pics of the lid...

    Yeah, Mike is going to look great in this. I'll be offering complete helmet setups in the junkyard also, once the mold is done. It will include chin cup, strapping, the works.

    I'd love to buy a helmet, as long as it wasn't too too outrageous in price.

    Omg, so you're the one she's been making the body suit for. Now I know I'm gonna get to see the final result of that. Badass, Jordan.

    Jordan, no, she's making the body suit for Mike... I'm making the helmet it goes with.

    I used a 3D printer the company I work for developed and made. It's called the Monolith and is on sale now at 3D Printers - FreeFab 3D
