This model is a mask of a plague doctor who treated victims of the bubonic plague and you can know them by their specific beaked masks.
This eccentric headpiece served as a kind of primitive ‘gas mask’ for medical practitioners in 17th-century Europe, designed to protect its wearer from the foul odours associated with the plague.
Files contain 3 versions of this mask. All models are fully ready to be 3D printed and files also contain complete masks, that are not cut into smaller pieces.
At 100% scale the masks dimensions are:
Width approx. 170 mm
Length approx. 263 mm
Height approx. 257 mm
We recommend scale the model according to your head measurements. It is good to make it bigger and then add cushioning to the inside for a snug and comfortable fit.
We recommend a layer height of 0.1 to 0.3 mm on FDM printers. All parts are aligned to the printing platform for easy manipulation. Most of the parts need minimal or no use of printing supports to save printing time and filament. For reliable printing, we also recommend setting a brim to the helmets shell parts, because of their height and low thickness. It will ensure, that the parts will not come off the printing platform during the printing process. Printing settings will vary greatly depending on your specific printer.
