More Armor On Thingiverse
There’s a special bit of information on the Thingiverse page, too:
The awesome thing about this print, is that the helmet its based on isn’t on display at the MET, it’s in storage – I worked off a 123D Catch created by MET staff. You can’t see this at the MET, but you can see it in your own home thanks to 3D printing!
Kaboom! This piece of armor is otherwise inaccessible (there’s only so much space!), but the Met staff was so cool as to snap some photos of it and share them with a digital artist so that the entire world can now get their hands on it.
Check out the original here, and compare the two pieces. PrettySmallThings (aka Kacie Hultgren) did some “restoration” work on the file in order to re-sculpt some parts that didn’t render quite right. This is an excellent addition to the armor scales by Krest that MakerBlock blogged about the other day.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking?1
- scale these up and wear them for in-office chair jousting [↩]
