    There has been an Awakening .. My Helmet Model is now FREE, sure its not 100% accurate but if it can help any kylo hopefuls along the way then great !!

    Hey guys, So some of you may have seen my work on the Kylo ren buckle, I've began working on my most ambitious project yet the Kylo Ren Helmet, sure someone with more skill will swoop in before me and do a quicker and better job but you only learn by diving in the deep end right ? (or you drown apparently)

    so from the reference shots so far i've started on the front Face Plate

    More Progress Tomorrow hopefully !!


    if anyone has some high res straight on shots i'd love to see them all the shots i've seen straight on are low res all the high res shots are off angle ..

    How about this? It's concept art, but from everything I've seen so far the concept art has been pretty durned close to the final form we've seen physically represented.

    Looks like Solidworks? If so, I'd love to try some files on my CNC mill when you're finished :)

    Solidworks :)

    it certainly is :) oo you have a CNC mill are you in the UK ??? i'd love to see that !!

    thanks the main body of the face is going to take a little bit to get the surfaces as i'm no pro by a long shot haha but i'm happy with it so far, I might also consider unfolding the two face sheets and having cut out of 2mm aluminum

    thanks !!

    thanks !!

    Not in the UK, but Star Wars has no borders :) It's nothing special, just an inexpensive 4x4 CNC router that I do 3D carving with.

    This is fantastic work, probably the best/most accurate helmet I've seen on here so far.

    I know that this is a work in progress and all, but it seems to me that you're missing part of the "cheekbone" and an indentation?

    the plate has so far been the trickiest thing i've done to date, still churning through to tidy it up a little more but so far so good !!

    accuracy i's certainly my aim so thank you so much for your kind works, i still have a lot of surfacing to do and no doubt a lot more hair pulling moments

    The face ridges will come at a later stage after i get the main shape down as well as the other minor detailing

    Re: Kylo Ren: 3D Helmet WIP

    Love the progress so far. Definitely familiar with the pains of trying to cad something organic looking. May I add a suggestion : I don't think the front plate is a simple (1 direction bend) curve. It looks like it flares at the ends, where the cheek bones would be. Not sure how you'd model that in a way that can be unfolded, so maybe your best bet is to form those details after you've cut the sheet and work with the physical part.

    the intent here is to print the whole helmet clean it up and cast ^^

    i'll work on refining the faceplate on the next pass i'm not crazily happy with it but it's a good approximation for more

    Well after 6 face plate detail (forehead/cheeks) revisions that i binned because i didn't like them or they weren't clean enough i've made a new start i'm moderately happy with: it's now 5:00am and it's a good point to take a break i think ! :)

    Beautiful work! I like to think I'm decent with solidworks, but I could never get the complex curving shapes down so well! :)

    I'm Using multi angled plains with reference photos during the build I've also assembled a very low res 3D Scan of the face plate from the publicly available shots of the mask to ensure my surfaces are all in the correct proportion and angle to the rest of the mesh as I'm assembling it this is still my first pass once I have the helmet roughly down I will go back to the front plate and redraw it and itterate the model that way ...FOR ALL TIME.. Or until I finish hahaha

    Re: Kylo Ren: 3D Helmet WIP

    alot of non-visible progress today haha cleaned up a lot of tangencies on some of the curves and got the top of the faceplate into a solid (for printing)

    net result for you guys i made precisely 18.26mm of progress on the faceplate haha, but atleast i have my method down now to work on the rest a few hours each night this week and i should have the cheeks completed fingers crossed !:D the rest of the dome shouldn't take a great deal of work

    Really nice build! I hope to see it finished! Bewar on the cheekbones, they are asymmetrical(the shape is similar, but one is cornered and the other curved!). The first time i saw it i didn't realize that XD I'm tryng to sculpt it in zbrush in my freetime, but if you finish first, it would be great to have the file for 3dprint that!=) Nice work, keep on going!:thumbsup

    yeah those cheekbones are pure death haha

    anyway todays slow progress half of the right cheek !!

    feels good to get that bit done !! i spent the longest time getting my technique down to do this with alot of deep breathing and walls being stared down ..

    hopefully the remnants of the cheeks will come more smoothly now
