This is a simple tweak of the original file. It is the T-Rex Skull but I ran the files through MeshLab and reduced the polygon counts to between 500-1000 to create the Lowpoly-Rex while still retaining the basic necessary details.

This was printed at 0.15mm layer height and 10% infill with Gold and White PLA on my MakerGear M2. Printed at 50% scale and shown compared to the original file. Printed without supports.

I have strange problem with this model http://prntscr.com/8pjc9x

This is completely my fault. =(

I know this is a little older, but does the T-ReSkull_rod (from the original model made by makerbot) fit in the skull part. I printed it and it looks like the hole with a key turned into a hex. Will this be a problem?

It should still work. I used the original stand when I printed this.

Hi, where did you get the stand design from ?

suprisingly the top jaw printed fine without supports, the bottom jaw i've had 3 failed attempts at different speeds. Without a heated bed it seems to have issues slipping 75% of the way through. going to try the bottom jaw with supports tomorrow.

great model otherwise.

Printed without supports.

In what orientation did you print the top jaw? Mine printed supports all throughout the holes and they're basically impossible to remove, not to mention the raft and missing teeth, etc.

This should be printed without supports and in the orientations show in the model file previews above. Works best with a heated bed.

Was this printed with support?
