IRON MAN 2 - Helmet Set - 3D Modeling, Rapid Prototyping, Molding, Casting, Tooling

This was a fun little project that I did for Sideshow Collectibles for Iron Man 2. I fully digitally modeled all 3 Iron Man Helmets and Display stand (large base modeled by Sideshow Collectibles). I was supplied the digital models from the film studio, but there was a lot of work to be done to make these into physical products. I modeled the helmets in Maya, and prepped for output in Magics. once approved, I then had them 3D Printed on an EnvisionTEC printer and cleaned up the master models. I then molded all of the helmets and stand and duplicated them with Smooth-On Smooth Cast 300. I also them fully cleaned and polished the models for final tooling. (Lights and Paint done by the team at Sideshow.)
