OverviewUpdated Helmet Liner Material
Project Intent - reduce overall size of helmet while maintaining minimum DOT safety standards.
Process - Review qualities and test printed structure materials to replace 2" polystyrene material with geometrically hive similar printed structure at 3/4"- 1" thick. We have tested many printable mediums due to lack of material data. SLS process has homogenous integrity and shows the most promise in terms of overall part strength. Materials vary and the weight of Nylon has so far weighed twice that of polystyrene at half thickness during last testing.
Status - Revising design
