The Helmet (and just about all the files im using) is from NerdForgeDesigns on etsy, only the visor was free handed by me.The helmet looks sick dude. Did you design it yourself?
Definitely a possibility but the whole thing is so brittle that I dont think it's worth the effort to try. Just a little bit of pressure and it starts to buckle then split like shown.Can you weld the parts together?
Sorry to see that happen..So imagine this:
Be me, spend a couple months on a build.
Makes pretty good progress learning about post processing 3d printed cosplay.
Learns he gets into school program that hes been waiting on for a year.
Has to move to St. Louis for school.
Packs costume extra secure for moving.
Makes it to St. Louis
Surprise nothing broke on drive!
Starts setting up appartment.
Decides to hang up wooden shelf from high school with velcro....
Decides to set really nice looking helmet under said shelf................
Shelf decides to fall a day later...........................
Helmet almost becomes scrap.
Lucky super glue held really well.

I didnt take any pictures before I welded it back together but there was a pretty big dent in it near the front and some pretty bad cracks throughout.
I done a fair bit of melting and filling with some spare PLA+ for now and am planning to bondo and sand it over again. Wasnt planning to use resin before now but I am definitely considering for the whole armor now that this has happened.Sorry to see that happen..
Would a resin help fill in the cracked bits? Might add some weight but you wouldn't need to worry about it breaking further?
Bondo and sanding would hopefully cover bigger dents that you've patched.
