Rotating Skull Gear
by CarryTheWhat, published
I used Emmett's rotating gear code from the heart gear, and mashed it up with the CT scanned skull. I tried a few orientations, I like this one the most because it splits down the middle of the face.

Hey I'm trying to print your skull out. First I'd like to say it's a ridiculously cool looking model, and I can't wait to be able to assemble it! Unfortunately, the pins that I've printed out are rather too large. Were they meant to be printed in PLA or ABS? The rest of the skull I've printed out in PLA, and I thought that using ABS would make the pins more flexible, and therefore easier to fit into the hole. Should I reduce the size of the pins? I know the setting of filament always causes a change in the size of things.
Thanks so much!
Cool idea! Hm, so you would not need the gears to rotate then? What sort of printer do you have? I imagine you will have lots of difficulties with support if you try to print it out all as one piece.. why not print them separately and assemble, but add some super glue if you want it to stay solid & together?
As for the last piece, that shouldn't be too difficult. pick whichever orientation you want to be down toward the shifter, and subtract out a cylinder of the right dimensions.

This was printed on my Up!, I haven't tried it yet on the Replicator. I printed using support, because of an overhang on the eye socket.
**EDIT 8/2/12** So I accidentally had uploaded an earlier version of the skull. It should still have come together, but would look a little different from the picture. I have now uploaded the newer version.
