How to make a stormtrooper!


How do you make your own stormtrooper? Well buy a makerbot 3D printer! At work we now have done so and this marvel of modern technology has printed the Stormtrooper helmet below. I was asked to try and paint it. I am by far not happy with the result but hey loads of factors influencing the painting process:
1) the plastic has to be cleaned (I forgot to do that...)
2) The plastic needs to be sanded because it comes out of the printer in a very rough form.

Anyway: here are some pictures:
