I modeled this helmet by using some hand sketches wandering around the net.
The model is 3d printable and wearable. Both one piece version and the separate parts version are included in the package. The textures used for the renders are also added. Avisor part is present which should be printed by using a transparent filament. If needed , it can be omitted and the visor can be left empty.
The model differs from the models on the net by being anatomically correct. Its dimensions and form are considerably different from the sketches or other 3d models found on the internet. I’ve made this model by anatomically matching the shape and the dimensions of the average human head. Further size adjustment can be made in the slicer for the helmet to better fit to your head.
The P.K.E. Meter (also known as Aurascope) was one of the Ghostbusters’ tools invented by Dr. Egon Spengler that enabled them to track ghosts and other entities.
The full name of the device is a Psychokinetic Energy Meter, so named because its function is to detect the amounts of said energy and to direct the user to its location.
The design of the device is a small screen, mounted on a handle, which has a pair of sensor ‘wings’ protruding from either side. These wings have lights along their length, and will flash and extend as the meter closes in on the source of a P.K.E. signature. Much like a metaphysical Dowsing Rod, the meter will begin to buzz more and more in response to approaching a source of P.K. Energy. Once at the source of the energy, the wings will extend to their fullest length and the meter will buzz noticeably at a higher pitch.
As the name implies, here is a PKE METER design similar to the one in the movie; Ghost Busters. Print this and use it to complete your ghost busters prop set or costume. Being a designer, I’ve improved the design a bit, so this PKE meter is not %100 same with the one in the movie, a bit smaller to fit smaller printers, better buttons and minor changes at the details. Internals should be quite different as i’ve never seen the inside of the original. 😀
