ok thanks well idk is there anytype of formula that will change inches to cm? i haveno metric ruler..Spartan 161 said:Don't give up. Hell I suck at math and I am doing it my way with a photo copy machine. Don't let the single sentence posters who never want to truly help get you down. If you can get a tape measure and measure the circumference of your head in inches I may be abel to help point you in the right direction for the proper scale for a helm. Just trying to help.

Koobs I don't think your being mean. But think back to the last time you were really frustrated by a project. I can think of several myself that had me wanting to scream like a mad man. Luckily the right person at the right time came along and helped me out. So in that spirit I try and pay it forward as much as possible. and thank you for the measurements close to my size.koobs said:Not to be mean or anything, but if he's giving up this easily would he really be able to finish the suit or helm without getting too frustrated?
But yeah, to be helpful my helmet scale was 23.5 while I'm 5'6" and wear a 7.5 hat size.
This is the third thread where scaling has been an issue. I just typed out half a page of explanation in another thread explaining how I scaled mine. I admit I have sucky match skills lol. I have said this before but here I go again, what would rock is a chart in English and metric measurements that would give the value to put into Pepakura for the print out.quixand_prop said:Spartan,
Add up your height in inches. There is 12" to a foot. We'll use my hieght for the example. I am 5'11" which equals 71 inches.
Divide that by 86: 71/86 = .82558
Multiply that number times the scale it currently is, 30.342: 30.342*0.82558 = 25.04979
Now in Pepakura, go into 2dPatternWindow and select "Scale Up/Down by specifying value"
Under scale, put in the new scale (for this equazion its 25.04979). Do this for all of your pieces to be symmetrical.
One thing to keep in mind
The size of the scale that is in use before you edit it is from the base of the ground to the top outside of MC's helmet. You don't really want the top of your head to be touching the top of the inside of the helmet if you expect it to fit right. So you may want to add two or three inches to your actual hieght before doing the math. This may help other areas as well, where it could come through a bit tight.
If you can't do this math, post how tall you are. I'll do it for you.
