The helmet is fully functional, it is a high detailed papercraft based on a laser scanned model found at [link] . It's part of my MARK III and MARK IV Cosplay suit.
Here are a few tips to build it right:
1. You can use a different material for the eyes, I have used the bottom of a disposable plate.
2. There are two little cones where you might install two 3volt high intensity leds, and place two AA batteries between the eyebrows.
3. Leave some gaps between the eyes and above of them so you can see through them, it's not much but you can see through "scanning". And be sure there is no light reflected from the leds back to your eyes or you wouldn't see anything at all.
4. Use galvanized wire to build the sliders and screw them to the face using flat head screws, nuts and washers.
5. Install a magnetic lock behind the mouth for instant lock when the face fall in place.
6. Join all the (helmet's) nape parts using two paralell ribbons
To wear it slide the (helmet's) nape parts up, insert your head slowly watching your ears, once inside slide the (helmet's) nape parts down.
To open the face, lift and slide back.
I'm trying to finish the helmet but I not I'm not understanding how to join the support section into the outer shell. please point me in the right direction. Thank you
Love the work you've done.
Am a total noob at this, what size do you print the pages out? A4?
im actually pretty pee'd about this pattern
no joining lines areas or assembly instructions.
i have a handfull of parts, certain shapes and structures
now i have to interlock them, sort them with two hands.
fumble jumble falls apart
i cant see through paper to see where it all connects, if it connects , and how it connects
the 5 main assembly parts dont seem to have any tags, so you cant attach them.
i have wrecked my brain about this one all night.
usually they are easy to figure out.
i gave up.
you have an instruction manual about how to add lights and swing arms
but how about a manual on how to put your iron man helmet together?
its all down to materials , im still relitivly new to the art so im learning,, foam is new for me.
About the tabs, you can use pepakura viewer to check which part joins to which other. If you are missing the inner tabs you have to know that i've designed the pattern to be pasted over corrugated cardstock, so the "missing tabs" gaps should be filled with glue to join the cardstock side by side, additionaly you may use aditional paper/cardboard and glue to join the carstock from the inner side.
Cuál es la finalidad de utilizar otro material para los ojos?
Y tampoco entendí bien el Tip 6 donde dice utilizar cintas paralelas para unir las partes de la nuca.
En cuanto a las cintas, estas mantienen unidas las piezas de la nuca y aseguran que se muevan en orden, esto seria opcional si el diseño incluyera "topes/ganchos" en cada pieza para asegurar que una pieza mueva a la otra cuando baje.
But thanks for sharing this design.
do you have a bigger pict of it..?
Is there a full build thread of this helmet
thanks for the designs much appreciated
also how do I fold the lines some are dashes and some are thick lines thanks
And finally here's a quick intro to folds (using "ASCII Art"):
- - - - means mountain fold
-.-.-.- means valley fold
_______ means cut line
