If you're uncertain about the scale, we recommend avoiding printing the entire piece at once. Instead, you can print sectional rings to test the size and fit of a 3D printed piece so you can save on filament and time.
When it comes to Iron Man helmets, it's essential to size them up since they usually require hinges or servo motors inside. Our models are typically scaled for a 6-foot-tall 3D avatar, but we follow the proportions of a CGI model to avoid a bubble head look. In most cases, you can increase the scale by 2 to 5% to get the right size. The following test will help you achieve the perfect fit for your helmet.
Once you've scaled the helmet to your size, you can use it as a reference for future helmets. Simply import the new helmet file that you need to scale and place it at the origin of the helmet which is already scaled and use it as a guide to scale the new helmet up or down to the same size.
Happy printing! Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
