3D Printable Darth Vader Helmet - With Reveal Face Mask 3D print model

*PLEASE DO NOT SHARE OR RE-DISTRIBUTE THESE FILES.

*Note- the Dome pins and the holes they slot into have an 0.5mm tolerance. If you find the pins do not fit just sand the holes slightly or calibrate your printer.

UPDATED PARTS NOTE: The Face Vents were proving difficult for some to print at a smaller scale, they have been removed from the face mask and you can now print them seperately, this also makes for a much cleaner print all round. You can still opt to print the all-in-one version, it's entirely up to you. Image added to gallery showing updated parts.

Designed specifically for 3D printing, this deluxe Darth Vader helmet will be the pride of your collection. Comprising of 42 parts (plus optionals) this package covers the Episode VI inspired Darth Vader mask where his face is finally revealed. Like the movie, the back of the face mask is cut out, there is a full neck piece and dome to accompany the face mask.

To keep slicing a breeze, every individual part of this helmet was processed to reduce its size. In it's original state before processing, it is around 2GB. This is a high res helmet! After processing, all 43 parts come in at around 142mb. The largest part being around 15mb in size, which is completely within workable slicing standards.

The horzontal grills in the facemask forehead, unlike our competitors are REAL. We actually went to the trouble. Not only are they screen accurate, they allow the user o get some airflow. A mask under a mask can get a little warm. Also unlike our competitors - the face reveal actually looks like the screen version. This printable helmet exists because we thought we could do better and we gave it our best shot!

We also included an option non-grill mouth piece for those wishing to add their own grill. A non-grill chin piece can also be obtained by messaging us if you require.

The mask has been designed for you to be able to take the Dome on and off, which locks in place with a solid 6 pin system, so it won't rattle around and mounts snug onto the face mask. The facemask has small cut outs on the side and under the mouth that also assist with lining up and assembly.

Instead of going overboard on printable wiring that is difficult to print, we scaled back and just did the piping for the internal twin microphone props. All accessories are plug fitted, they will require glue but will actually fit without quite snug.

Out of 42 parts, 40 have been test printed to check the scale.

SCALE HAS BEEN BASED ON AN EXISTING ADULT SIZE VADER MASK. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND PRINTING THE FACE MASK PARTS 7 AND 8 FIRST (THE EYE HOLES) - THIS IS THE REQUIRED FACE WIDTH.

Let's put an end to high price meshes! Don't pay $$$ for a set of files when you know you are about to spend that on plastic - after all it's you that puts in the hard work to make it. We just design it for you.

*Note - The crisp sharp images you see in the instructions represent the actual models, they are not fancy render effects. All pieces are void of visible polygons, ready for a clean silky smooth print.

We have done everything for you!

All pieces are cut and repaired using a professional grade repairing tool, all pieces are placed dead flat at 0,0,0 on the build surface for you. We have tried very very hard to ensure all you need to do is load the file, select your settings and press print.

We include comprehensive instructions for all parts (the assembly guide has been uploaded for your viewing)

This suit is cut for a 20xcmx15cmx15cm build plate (ie Wanhao/CTC/Flashforge) but parts will fit on a 15x15x15cm plate, just oriented differently.

All parts can be cut again and if you require any assistance with cutting parts smaller OR you would like the full piece of a part (ie you would like the chest in one piece) as long as you have purchased the pack, like a piece of software or hardware, we will support you on it regardless - as many edits as you require - from printing to finishing.

SUGGESTED PRINT SETTINGS:

LAYER HEIGHT: Since parts will be sanded and painted, we suggest 0.2-0.3mm layer height.

INFILL: We suggest a 3-10% infill rate to keep the weight of the parts down. A full suit can be quite heavy if given too much infill.

Supports / Rafts This is really up to you and your printer. These days printers with great cooling can perform some serious overhangs, it's going to come down to you knowing your printer and how what it's capable of. Please ask us a message in the comments if you would like to know more.

      Printing this right now. Parts looks great. Thanks for cutting it to more manageable pieces and figuring out the best orieintation to lessen overhangs. Any suggestion on what to use for the eye lens?

        The model looks great. Finished printing all the face and head parts. Although I did notice something a bit off. The cheek area of DV have sharp edges, whereas this model has curved and soft edges (face part 7, 8 and 9). Any chance you can revise and make them sharper? Looking forward to completely printing this and painting.

          Hi, those are there for a reason. If they are not there you cannot take the face mask on and off, they are designed to fit snugly onto the front neck section side pipes (take a look at the photos with the mannequin and grey print) If you would like me to make a new one sure you can hire me to do that, but I cannot alter this one as then it will not fit both in and it it wont come off the face mask. The side pipes on the cheeks are inherently curved inward - to make them straight out would make it look more like the kids voice changer vader mask sadly. I'd love to do it dead flat, it was originally but after testing we found it had to be altered so the face mask was actually removable.

          Currently stuck in assembling the helmet/dome. There are some parts that are not lining up. Not a problem with the stl files but with some of the parts that I printed that has a bit of warping. Could you also provide the full size, one piece stl of the helmet/dome. I have another printer coming in that would have a big enough build volume to print it in one piece. Also purchased the Boba Fett helmet, would like to get the full size, one piece stl of that if possible. Thanks

              Hi Geoffro. Sent you a message regarding the full size one piece helmets. Just checking if you successfully received it. Also, I noticed that in your description, you mentioned that this version is when his face was revealed as episode IV. It's actually in episode VI, Return Of The Jedi, when the reveal helmet was shown.
