How to Build an Iron Man Helmet & Suit | 4-minute Summary | James Bruton

Help me make more awesome projects like this Iron Man cosplay by supporting me on Patreon:

This video shows the highlights of my four-year Iron Man suit and helmet build, showing some of the fabrication, mechanics, 3D printing and electronics involved.

For many, cosplaying Iron Man is a dream project and this will always be one of my favourite characters to cosplay. The arc reactor, unibeam, power suit and helmet all require an attention to detail to make them look good, hopefully that's what I achieved. Let me know what you think in the comments.

Former toy designer – designer of toys?! – current YouTube maker and general robotics, electrical and mechanical engineer, I'm a fan of everything 3D printable, doing it yourself and being a creative-of-all-trades.

My channel is where I share some of my useful and not-so-useful inventions, designs and maker advice. Iron-Man is my go-to cosplay, and 3D printing can solve most issues – broken bolts, missing parts, world hunger, you name it…

Thanks to my patrons, without whom I would genuinely not be able to continue doing what I do. Help me make more awesome projects and get first access to new videos through Patreon:
