Optimized for printing in PLA material, due to the large build. PLA is more dimensionally stable than ABS when it comes to big prints. The helmet is shelled out and prints best with no support or raft material.
Fit the helmet to your head! Measure around the top part of your head, right above the ears and edit the dimensions inside the DP-helment.123dx file, keep the maximum build size in mind. You can even launch 123D Design right in your browser.
This jumbo helmet measures a massive 246mm x 226mm x 250mm and takes about 49 hours (3 Days) to print!
If you notice your spool running low, you can heat up two filament ends together with a heating element like a nozzle from a 3D Printing Pen to fuse the ends.
Easy remove large print off the platform by using a flexable build plate.
