Picture of DIY: Daft Punk Helmet

This is a project I have already done twice and now I am in the process of doing it again. I have always been after the perfect shape and scale for is helmet and I think this time I will be spot on! I’ve done it before with pepakura and this time I’ve done it with 3D printing and modeling. Hope you dig the process.

Just as a side note, even though some photos are from this new build and some are from a previous build, the steps are still the same and will be required to finish this project.

Step 1: Supplies.... in No Order What So Ever...
