Good evening all.
Since the last post, the legs are now complete.
The hip bones have been assembled and installed onto the skeleton.
That was tricky, as there was no way to physically clamp them to hold their place. Had to just hold them in my hand till the glue set.
When dry the ball socket...
The Main spine and the neck are fixed sub assemblies. If you wanted to you could cut the individual vertebrae, to isolate them. The tail would be easy as except for the tip are all individual vertebrae.
Had a bit of fun installing the lower jaw to the skull. This piece is so awkward that finding a good way to support it while the glue set was very difficult. Ended up just holding it in place.
Also glued together the parts of the upper spine and neck. These went together fairly...
Finally have finished printing all the pieces for this T-Rex.
The parts for the back of the skull and the lower jaw, I reprinted as wanted to try and print these pieces without a raft to get a flatter smoother joint surface to reduce prep time.
I am working on the skull at the...
The head was the first thing I printed and ran out of grey filament, so used a partial spool of flesh that I had, to finish the print.
It will be painted anyway so it doesn't really matter.
Good evening all.
Still playing with the 3D Printer.
In a subject somewhat suited for the coming season I've picked on another 3D printed subject.
A 1/20 th scale T-Rex skeleton.
She is about 1m snout to tail, and consists of ~ 200 pieces. This is at 50% of the original model size.
The Ducati is now finished.
Here are the final pics for this build.
I'm happy with how it turned out. This was my first major 3D model that I have printed out and finished. It has been a great leaning experience.
Now on to the next project.
Thank you for following...
