    Any Interest in Interior Kits

    Hi everyone,

    Im toying with the Idea of producing some interior kits, just wanna get a good response this time prior to build as my ESB Sidearms weren't as successful as anticipated,
    I have reconstructed on CAD the riddelle interior with a few minor modifications, these will be 3D printed utilizing flexifil a plastic filament with some flex in it,

    Above is a 3d printed piece in normal ABS

    Ok peeps let me know if your interested, these will be going for $85 + shipping

    Just curious - I thought the interior of the helmet was just foam and electronics. How did we find out about this design? Any history behind it or is it just fan made? Looks awesome IMO.

    Would this be best suited for a display helmet? Would probably be uncomfortable to troop in.

    This isnt fan made really...it was made by riddel many years ago...they did a smal scale helmet and that was the interior they made up for the helmet.

    Yeah thats correct Fett, I used the blueprints from Riddel, I don't think it will be uncomfortable as the parts are soft, but have to wait and see

    Might be interested in a set. I assume a abs print is more rigid, does that mean the detail is sharper too? I don't troop, only have my helmets for display so don't need a soft set. Could you do a few in abs?

    Re: Any Interest in Interior Kits

    Yeah can do abs but they will be better in flexifil this means they bend with the shape of the helmet but still sharp

    Re: Any Interest in Interior Kits

    If they are soft (ish) I would be interested, also pending on price and size (if we could do measurements after installation to ensure my head fits).

    Because I would be trooping with it, I'll probably have to cut up certain points for battery access, fans, extra padding, etc.

    If it doesn't turn out, or you have some B grades, I'd be interested in those as well.
