Chappie head

Recommended Posts

Heya

I've absolutely loved the movie Chappie ever since it came out and I'm finally working on a wearable Chappie head for a complete chappie costume (the body will be EVA foam).

I've created this model in Autodesk Inventor (and the pictures are actually old already because I forgot a few details that have been added already. Aaaah, replicating stuff.)

The head is a bit wider to be able to actually fit my head inside without turning it into a bobblehead.

I first did a quick test print with my 0.8mm nozzle to see if I could actually fit this onto my head, because I've made it so that it can fit JUST over my ears.

And it fits perfectly! So that's great.

Now to print all the other parts and assemble it all.

:D

Wow, awesome!!

The photo where you wear it is pretty great!

Will it have LEDs? Other cool gadgets?

Unfortunately I have not seen the movie yet.

I understand it is under your recommendation? ;)

It will indeed have LED's, because what will it be without?

I also want to try to make a sound activated LED so I can make the "mouth" slot light up when I talk.

The bars above the eyes and under the mouth can be moved by hand for pictures and so can the ears.

And it is indeed under my recommendation, but if you'll actually like it yourself, no idea.

It doesn't have the best reviews so that's kinda sad :(

That movie could've been great if they had removed Die Antwoord. The whole movie felt like a long advert for the band. Completely ruined it for me.

 

Well, the movie was actually completely build around them, they were the actual starting point when writing the movie. Neil Blompfkamp and die Antwoord have quite the relationship (the die Antwoord logo appearing in District 9 too.)

And idk, I didn't have that problem at all and I hardly knew die Antwoord when I watched the movie first.

Let's not...turn this into a movie discussion though I guess :O

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
