Horus is a Star Gate series and film character, the warrior in the service of the Lord Ra. The helmet was worn by Horus Guard (Jaffa Guards). These warriors were equipped with a Staff weapon – Ma’Tok.
If you want to make the helmet move autonomously and look at people walking by with glowing lights you can download our electronics files here.
This is unfortunately not a project for beginners, Arduino, programming knowledge, and work with electrics are required. We had a custom PCB made for Horus’ eyes, but we suggest making it with basic LEDs. Here’s what to expect from the Electronics pack.
This model is a wearable costume – a helmet, which is quite big and is meant to be post-processed after printing. This can be gluing, sanding, painting, etc.
Files contain pieces of the Horus helmet ready to be 3D printed and complete Horus helmet files (obj), that are not cut into smaller pieces. All files are fully detailed.
At 100% scale the Horus helmet dimensions are:
Width approx. 285 mm
Length approx. 280 mm
Height approx. 988 mm
You can scale the model as you wish
We recommend a layer height of 0.2 mm on FDM printers. All parts are aligned to the printing platform for easy manipulation. Most of the parts need minimal or no use of printing supports to save printing time and filament. For reliable printing, we also recommend setting a brim to the Horus helmet, because of its height. It will ensure that the parts will not come off the printing platform during the printing process. Printing settings will vary greatly depending on your specific printer.
Do you like the model and don’t have a 3D printer? There are lots of people who offer 3D printing services these days. Try searching for someone who offers them in your area.
This fan-made model was brought to life by 3Demon. We are a group of modeling and 3D printing enthusiasts based in Prague, Czech Republic.
