Introduction: 3D Printing an Iron Man Helmet
Here is how you can make your own awesome 3d printed iron man helmet.
primer, paint, 3d printer, sander, tape, etc.
Step 1: Printing the Parts
I downloaded a iron man helmet file and printed out the parts on my ender 5.
Step 2: Remove Supports
I removed supports on my iron man helmet.
Step 3: Sanding
I used a 5" random orbital sander so the parts are smooth and clean.
Step 4: Adding Led Eyes and Magnetizing
I used a soldering iron to add the magnets and I connected the wires to the magnets so the eyes would light up when you took the faceplate on and off.
Step 5: Taping Off
I used blue tape to tape the wires and eyes and magnets off so no primer and spray paint will get on them.
Step 6: Priming
I used sandable primer so that I can sand the parts down and make them smooth I had to wood filler and do more coats.
Step 7: Painting
Now I just did a few light coats as a base coat on the crown and jaw and I spray painted the faceplate gold and the eyes a dark grey.
Step 8: Taping Again
I taped off all the parts that are red on the helmet then went to spray paint the gray.
Step 9: Painting Gray
I did a few light coats of grey spray paint.
Step 10: Finished Product
This is what it looks like once it is all finished.
Step 11: Spray Painting Supplies
I used these spray paints throughout the helmet
