Halo 2 *Anniversary* HD Master Chief helmet WIP


Hey guys. Started working on over-modelling the Halo 2 Anniversary Master Chief helmet into a High Definition and hopefully, 3D printable helmet.

As always, file will be uploaded when finished.

Pics thus far, 2 days in.

Helps me become a little more confident in blender, as usual.



Used an interesting technique this time to get the cuts in.

Started off drawing the details on a seperate plane before cutting them into the model. Alot of keyboard mashing was done. Wish there was an easier way.

As a Fusion360 user, I approve of this keyboard slapping method. It seems fairly similar to techniques that I use and it's getting awesome results!

Hahhah thanks! Wish I could afford a proper cad program. Would make modelling parts for cars easier.
Fusion360 does have a free* version but there's a few restrictions to what you can do with it. If you can get sweet results like this with Blender, I don't see any reason to switch!
 
Its LIVE!


Good luck loading the file. Blender crashed on me multiple times so I had to dial down the smoothing a bit.

Visorless option with vacuumforming buck will be provided soon.

Final shot of it

For the first time I actually feel like I did well to keep it accurate.

*Update* Visor-less option now included with 2 variants of the vacuum-forming tool. Mesh issues have also been addressed.

Disregard the "molding rights" request for the vacuum-forming tool. This is a neccesary exception since 3D printed vacuum-forming tools have nearly no strength when it comes to thermoforming.

It should be a snug fit once a pull is done, the inside of the helmet exactly matches the extra surface area of the visor buck, but I suggest scaling the visor down by 1% to account for the thickness of the plastic forming sheet.

Great work! The model looks top notch. Pretty sure this is the first H2 version I’ve seen. Think this is going to have to go on the just because it’s awesome print list

Thanks! Yeah, I've noticed no one did a Halo 2 Anniversary 3d model yet (Besides the one that 343 commissioned from jtm1997 in collab with Stony Props) and thought hey, since I want one anyway, I might as well model it already. The file has actually been sitting on my computer for the past couple of months, just never got around to finishing it until this week, since my city went into lockdown again lol.
