Skyrim Papercraft: Iron Helmet

My papercrafter cohort Brandon appears to have been busy this Thanksgiving holiday cranking out papercraft models from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This iron helmet paper model is his fourth Skyrim papercraft to be released in the past two days. This particular helmet is the one the playable character is shown wearing in nearly all the publicity for the video game. The Pepakura PDO template for the helmet is available here.

    1. Models built with cardstock can be surprisingly sturdy.

    2. There are a lot of different processes you can do to harden it. I like using resin and fiberglass cloth.

  6. I figured out how to open the pdo file... Can I not print the pieces out on normal printer paper? If I scale them to fit, they print to small. If I leave it as is, they print way too big. Help. :(

    1. I would advise printing the pieces on cardstock rather than normal printer paper, otherwise the helmet will be too fragile. As for scaling, I assume you are trying to get something that will fit your exact size? Try the "change scale" option under the "2D Menu". You will have to reposition the pieces on the pages if change the scale,though.

    2. Yes, I wanted to be able to put it on. Sorry, I wasn't clear. I'll have to try that. Thanks!

  7. I'm on mac, what application can I open the file with?

    1. The file opens with the free "Pepakura Viewer" software from Tamasoft, which is not available for Macs as far as I know. You will have to get someone with a PC to open the file with the software and then export out a PDF file with a program like CutePDF if you want to open the template on a Mac.

  8. Is there a way to get this so its not so lumpy (for lack of a better word) so I can print it then trace it onto wonderflex?

    1. By "not so lumpy", you mean less angular/more smooth? Maybe if someone were really good at 3D modeling they could smooth out the original 3D model before unfolding it in Pepakura.
