3D printed full size Velociraptor skull

Recommended Posts

I'm 3D printing this Velociraptor's skull - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2736627

 

Details are very realistic, but I didn't found any real Raptor's skull image to compare. Internet is full of replicas...

Anyway, if you're going to 3D print it, consider that it is a very pain. It is badly split, and it is not very easy to 3D print: more than half of the pegs will break and some of the pieces have mesh issues. Also, I suggest to print teeth flat on the 3D printing bed, and not as the original STL.

 

I will update the post with new images as I glue and paint it.

Regards,

Adriano

Teeth glued (2 hours of work!).

Tomorrow I will paint it. I'm still deciding if painting like sand or dark brown/black as many dinosaurs...

Currently working on the weathering. It is the first time, so I'm experimenting various techniques...

Nice color; did you used airbrush to paint it? Are you going to leave teeth white?

Here we go! This is the final version of the Velociraptor skull. Video has subtitles with the explanation of the painting process. I hope you like it!

I used the Alfawise U20 3D printer - https://www.gearbest.com/3d-printers-3d-printer-kits/pp_1841229.html?wid=1433363&lkid=14682927

Very good work. Much better than most of the other 3-D printed skulls I have seen on-line.
