3D model description
One off the Bucket list, a Robocop Head.
The actual helmet part I found years and years ago on a site that no longer exists sadly, and I can't recall who made it, but I dug it up, made a head to go in it, gave it a base and neck, filled it out a bit and cleaned it up and tried to print it (several times) and finally the split you see was the better one that I made. I have included the full bust if you want to print in one. Have marked this as no derivatives simply because there is alot going on with it, especially the full size helmet, please see pic#3. It may be subject to change once the full helmet is done, as I can supply alot more alternatives to cut up versions. For now, this hopefully will suffice.
Please read the instructions
p.s If you haven't ever figured out what the logo is that's on my printer, it's the OCP logo from Robocop, one of the very first things I ever printed and it's been on my machine ever since! :)
3D printing settings
The test print you see was done fast and small, it took about 110 minutes to print at 80ms and 0.2mm, and it is tiny, standing only 5.3cm high.
Raft not required
Infill not required
Supports Required, but on the split version, there are only 2 very small ones next to the nose, they are extremely easy to remove - there is virtually no clean up involved in this print.
Full scale mask
As you can see in the images, I have pretty much completed a full scale wearable helmet.
In making the full scale one (which is already half printed, probably more 60%) I decided to try something different halfway through the project.
In the movie, Robocop's jaw cowl is sort of rubbery, but made to look like hard metal/plastic. Now, black flexible filament pretty much looks identical to that - but the problem is, you want to print an entire cowl in flex, and not join it, but you can't because of the size (well, I can't not on my printer. I am limited to 22cmx14.5cm)
So how do we get around that issue. Well, I thought about it for a few days and ended up cutting the cowl in a place you wouldn't see it and inserting small round cavities that will hold small magnets that will then hold the flexible jaw cowl halves together.
Let's be realistic here. The movie version of the helmet and suit took hours to put on. This needs to be easy to take on and off and the way I have designed the helmet is so you can put the top on, the back fits around your neck and then you simply put the jaw cowl on via magnets.
This is the simplest way I could come up with and a fun way to play with some flexible filament at the same time.
As for an entire Robocop, right now I'm struggling to pick a full size Robocop or Terminator to upload. Both are incredible enormous projects and really, I'd like to have one completed before I upload it - just to save someone a million headaches. Both have their own challenges and I'm just working through modelling them both to see which one is going to be the more viable one to do. I fear the chest plate on robocop would be pretty hard in so many pieces, whereas the T-800 could be done in relatively few pieces, but that's another story.
