New 3d printable Daft Punk Thomas and Guy helmets!13th Feb 2014, 10:56 #1
Edit: well, i've decided to make this available through shapeways (go through the thread to see how it evolved). Their new pricing policy for some materials made it not worth the time, work and cost of assembling, hardening and sanding a paper model. Anyways, if you really want to go the paper way, send me a Personal Message that i'll send you the pepakura model ; ).
Here it is the 2mm thickness model: link removed
There is also a cheaper thinner shell one (may need to be strengthened from the inside): link removed
shapeways keeps links to the products updated every week, so here it is the shop link: http://www.shapeways.com/shops/brunoosti]
Jump to this post to download Thomas' model.
Some may know i'm modeling/improving 3d models for Guy and Thomas.
I'm aiming at HAA era helmets, but also balancing some features to make the best of the helmets as they can be.
This thread will be dedicated to those models. I've just completely finished modeling Thomas' and i'ts perfect! : D
I'll unfold it again and make available to everyone : )
Latter I'll also add the internal structures for the templates to house the light rigs, and have it unfold again. This way it will be easier to build the lights housing in scale after the helmets are ready.
I've just built the last version, and for this updated one i'll make sure it's the easiest and fastest build possible.
For now, stay with some pictures. Maybe by the weekend the first unfold (without the internal light rigs template) is already available.
PLEASE! FEEL FREE TO MAKE SUGGESTIONS ON IMPROVING THE MODELS : )
(i've managed to make the dome wider, giving the "no step" effect; improved the chin, mouth and nose. These will be the most noticeable changes from the last uploaded version)
This is a 23cm tall head. The helmet is 24 cm tall:
It's really hard to match the angle. The chin may not mach because of lens/camera proprieties:

Ive tried modelling them in 3D, but im more of an organic person myself.
I prefer to create more stranger things and scenes.
The dimensions look REALLY CLOSE. Like, really well done man.
Cant wait to see some final renders

Well, hum.. this is the final render!
I'm not chroming the 3d model because google sketchup isn't that fancy (i think).
Also, it's made to be transported to paper, so, i'll start working on assembling it to make at least the colored paper model ready for next month.
Either, this is not a high def model. The first pic (smothed model) is a sketchup tool that smooth the edges based on an angle parameter. So, there really isn't a lot of polygons on this. On the second pic you can see the true polygon mesh.

Yes! Of course! : )
I'm not at home right now. I'll do the comparison and than post here.

I'm not a professional, either at 3d modeling or prop making.
It would be cool to have this rendered in high def.
I'd like to get it 3d printed, but it's very much expensive : ( Also, i don't think it would have a great finish, because of the low res model. There is also the issue that the model has to have some thickness to it, so as the printer can lay the material. It's a lot of work to give those faces some thickness (i think 2-3mm would be more than enough).

ALMOST! : p

Baed on what I've seen this is my only real critique. Its a small one.
I think the bottom corners of the visor could come a little closer together, but without changing the over all shape of the helmet. Does that make sense? Another way to say it is, I think the bottom of the visor should be a little narrower.
That, and maybe the nostrils could be a hair smaller as well?
Regardless, you've got a pretty spot on model there man, great work!
Re: New Daft Punk Thomas and Guy papercraft paperkura models!14th Feb 2014, 04:03 #10
yep, i've noticed that before and tried to narrow it, but it always end up with a to cone'y helmet. I don't know if the bottom part of the visor has a smaller radios than the top part or if that effect is achieved by the end frame inclination.
Also could be a field of view/lenss effect, that would distort the image.
Afterwords i'll make some experimentation and post it here : )
