My head Helmet

This is one of my many experiments concerning 3D printing.  This project was designed to learn work flows for several different skills.  To begin with I had a full body scan done.  I had to clean up the mesh scan data and prepare it for 3D printing.  Next I made the cleaned mesh hollow with a 1/8 thickness and bumped the scale up ever so slightly so it would fit my head.  Next I segmented the head into small enough pieces that I could fabricate them on a consumer level printer.  They were then bonded together to form a helmet.
