About Project

Want to buy the props of your favorite character in your childhood but find it out of print? Maybe 3D printing can help you have your wish. The client designed the 3D model of the helmet he has ever wanted and even generated a rendering. Then he found us to print the garage kit, and planned to paint it himself.

Solution

  • Step 1: We firstly analyze the 3D model and the renderings offered by the client. As he hopes it could be wearable, we suggest he split the helmet into front and back parts. As for the belts and other decorations, we can print them in one piece with the helmet. The eyepieces are required to be translucent, so we recommend printing them with clear resin.
  • Step 2: The client is consent with our suggestions, so we split the 3D model, add supports and arrange the placement on slicing software.
  • Step 3: 3D print the front and back helmet pieces with SLA Generic Resin using our industrial 3D printer, and print the eyepieces with SLA Clear Resin. The layer thickness we set is 0.05mm.
  • Step 4: Rinse the model with IPA and post-cure with UV. Cut off all the supports, then polish with sandpaper.
  • Step 5: The client wants to paint the helmets by himself, so we just spray the eyepieces with clear acrylic paint to make them look clearer.
