    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    Funny Urumomo. It does Patrick. And almost as much work. Having access to a real one has been a great help. Jim

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    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...

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    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.

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    Good day. 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...

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    Good day. 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...

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    Thanks Urumomo. 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. Jim

    Big T-Rex a 3D Printed Model

    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. I have...

    Ducati 1199 1/6th scale 3D Printed Model

    Good evening. Have had a very productive build session this weekend. Had to deal with a couple of fit issues, that were easily fixed. As of tonight everything is installed other than the front faring. I still have to make and apply the decal for the IP display before the faring can be...

    Good evening all. More of the painting is now done and I am just about ready to start major assembly. For a first attempt at this large a 3D printed project, I'm fairly happy with the result so far. The front end is now assembled and ready to install into the main body. The Engine...

    Ducati 1199 1/6th scale 3D Printed Model

    Sorry for the length of time between updates. With vacation period over probably more time for the bench. Anyway. Have started adding colour to the pieces. Not wanting to hide the fact that these are 3D printed, I did not sand the surfaces flat and left the print lines showing. Will probably...

    Good evening. Finally finished all the fitting, sanding, filling and sub assembly construction on the bike. Spent yesterday and today giving all the sub assemblies and parts a good coat of primer. Everything is now ready for a coat of colour. Jim
