Can‘t wait for the Power Rangers reboot to arrive in January 2017? Just download and 3D print all five Power Ranger helmets for free.
The original Power Rangers were… well, let‘s say the series was “targetted to kids”. But some weeks ago, Lionsgate Movies surprised us with a Power Rangers movie trailer that actually looked great and a bit more mature. Now we have a lot of time left until the movie comes out on January 13, 2017. So, if you want to add some Power Rangers flair to your life, you can do so thanks to the marvels of 3D printing.
The creator of the 3D printable Power Ranger helmets, Morgan Morey, has put them up on MyMiniFactory for anyone to download (links below). The helmets were originally created for a fan film by Ismahawk entitled Power Rangers vs Voltron:
How to get the free Power Ranger Helmets
Getting the helmet files is very easy. Just download the files from MyMiniFactory and fire up your 3D printer. Here are the files:
The Power Ranger helmets can be cut into multiple parts for printing on smaller 3D printers. Each one fits on a real person’s head and looks convincing. The helmets are hinged; you put your face in the front of the helmet, then close the back. Please be aware that it will take considerable time and post-production to get the helmets right… it‘s not a beginners project.
If you don’t have a 3D printer at hand, you can have the parts printed by a professional 3D printing service. To get the best price, please use All3DP’s price comparison service.
How the Power Ranger Helmets were made
“I really enjoyed the Might Morphin Power Rangers as a kid, so getting the chance to make the helmets with the prospect of them being printed and used for a video was a great opportunity,” says Morgan Morey. “The Power Ranger Helmets were originally designed by Huy Dinh which I then sculpted in zBrush for production by ItchyPig from spectra3d.com. The finished product is a wonderful thing and it was great to see it in the Ismahawk Video.”
If you want to know how the helmet was made, you can watch an uncut sculpt work for any of the helms (just start with the one below).
