hey guys Im planning on using shapeways to print a 3d file iron man helmet. the person who gave it to me hasn't been active and haven't been online in while

please look at the files and see if they are scaled to fit a 5'10 person (normal size head) like the person said he used a Spectrum z510 which has a build area of 10" x 14" x 8" so he divided the helmet into parts. when I upload it on shapeways, it asks me "Unit of Measure" mm, meters or inches? which measurement should I use? I have no exp in 3d printing and don't wanna waste money if buy it and will not fit. any help is appreciated.

I chose mm
here's the face plate IronManHelmet Mask by btort1 on Shapeways and it's cm: 2.476 w x 1.89 d x 0.862 h and in: 1 w x 0.7 d x 0.3 h Will this be the right measurements? I chose mm because when I upload this for inch or meters it is like $3000 lol

here's the rest of the helmet

A helmet created to fit any human is gonna cost a load of money. You might as well forget it, unless you are a millionaire

Have any questions regarding Blender, and need fast answers, you are always welcome at the IRC Server Freenode, channel #blender. As a bonus, several there have experience in modelling for 3D prints.
