Summary

I sliced and diced and now you can print it without support.

Now with alternate LARGER version!

Instructions

EDIT: I had to remove V2 and V3 because of scaling and overhand issues. Please download the V4 files for the larger T-Rex.

Print it without support and glue together.

On mine one of the arms didn't make it because it was too small but it's ok because he's right handed anyway.

New Version 4! I've sliced the tail/hips into two pieces and now they print about twice as large! Download the "2x Larger" files to print T-Rex nearly twice as large.

Even with the larger version his arms are pretty easy to break. I've uploaded an updated version of the larger model with easier to print arms.

Hello,
I saw your print and it is really good!
Can I aks you a question? It is for my own models.
How did you slice your model in separate parts for printing. Untill now i have only printed models that could be built form the ground up but i want to make more complicate models to print.

Many thanks,
Roger

I used Netfabb basic to cut the model apart. It seems to work pretty well for that and it's free.

Printing this right now. :) Nice work.
One problem I just noticed though: the claws curl backwards, so when printing this, it was unable to print the curled tips of the claws. It'll need some supports there.

Nice! Might I recommend cutting off the arms and printing them separately?

They are pretty tiny but if this latest print I'm currently printing doesn't work I'll definitely consider it.

On the latest larger model I moved the arms up so they might actually print. I guess we'll see once it gets done printing.
