BlackTie Helmet WIP
« on: Apr 11, 2018, 03:27 AM »
So I'm a little worried that my helmet has wound up too wide. The joys of a big head and sloped shoulders. Helmet is 11.5" and my shoulders are about 22" wide, but they slope so it looks a little funny. I'm wondering if perhaps making my shoulder armor a little wider would make up for this.

I can always reprint it smaller, but it's about a week of printing and 2 spools of filament just to get this one out.

Width looks fine to me.  The Half your shoulder width guideline is WITH shoulder armor on.  If you're still not happy with it after shoulder armor, you can always add pauldrons to cover the transition from neck down the shoulder slope.   I also have a big head, and glasses under my helmet.

That first photo you showed, it looks like the helmet is appropriately sized.

Thank you both. I was super worried I'd screwed my scaling up, but now I'm excited to get the armor rolling
