Description

STL 3d models of the helmet as seen worn by Samus in Metroid: Dread, to be 3D printed for cosplay/display etc. Closely referenced from currently available promotional renders of Metroid: Dread.

The STL files have an approximate mesh thickness of 5mm and are ready to print with default settings and are scaled to small head (22 inches). If you have a larger head, i recommend scaling up by 5 or 10%.

Includes a full helmet STL + cut into 4 equal pieces, also suitable for smaller printers.

Vent tubes print separately, for ease of print quality and postprocessing.

Printing instructions:

Default settings may include: 0.2mm resolution, 4/4/4 walls/top/bottom, 10 to 15% infill (cubic). No supports are necessary for the two back pieces. 

Finishing instructions:

Sand your 3D prints using 100-150 grit sandpaper, with royal use of primer or filler spray inbetween to get a smooth surface. Use higher grits for an even smoother surface. When you’re satisfied with the results, your last layer should be a primer spray, before painting it with acrylics (or any other paint, such as oil paints or spray paints). Protect your paint with a varnish spray in satin or gloss. I used a layer of black gloss as a base, then alclad chrome II, then candy red, and finally alclad II high gloss (all applied with airbrush).

You can also use epoxy resin such as XTC-3D, SHIELD (by Poly-Props), Epoxacoat or other epoxy to smooth and strengthen your 3d print with less effort than sanding it. Keep in mind epoxy resin is toxic and read the safety card and instructions included carefully.

The 3d models are made by me. The files are packed in a zip folder. This can be unpacked by most operating systems without the need of additional applications into your useable STL files, using the right-click menu.
