Lisa the printable skull by macouno Nov 29, 2012

Description

Lisa is derived from:
**Elvis, the Printable(?) Skull** by HPaul
which is derived from:
**Cleaned Hollow Skull** by ssd
which is derived from:
**Skull** by bothacker
Looking at the skull, I found that the question mark in the title of the model was there for a reason, so I thought I'd take it yet another step further away from the original scan.
I then also downloaded the Human Skull scan from mechadense: thingiverse.com/thing:36140
I decimated that one somewhat and placed it over my skull for comparison. Then made a bunch of changes to the face/jaw area.
**I updated all the files after looking at the second skull scan!**
Lisa is not as much a cleanup of the original as a complete remodel. She is very very basic.. so much so that she really should be considered an "artistic interpretation". But is fully printable!
To check for printability I wrote a small Blender addon which I will include as well (the python script). It generated "vertex colours" to show where on your model the polygons have troublesome angles for extrusion printers.
This version is exactly 5.3cm tall.
I also included the Blender file so it's very easy to make derivatives. I'd love to see where you all will take it next!!!

very nice~
this has been one of my favorite models on Thingiverse for a while

i found the normals of the logo bit on the bottom were pointing inward. fyi
ran "recalculate" in Blender and was able to do boolean transformation.
I expect you to always need some infill for a model like this. If I do an update I'll make the hole for the nose a little bit easier to print, but the top of the head really needs some internal support.

Your print is really a classic example of "not enough infill".
I have problems with the upper part and the high angles. As you can see in "I made it"... Hints for solving my problems?
I printed without infill, 2 perimeters, ultimaker, pla

It should be easy to print... no support material is required.
There is a small logo in the bottom of the skull. This way you don't need to print with a raft, and the skull still detaches easily from the build platform.

Nice, I like your three skull mesh comparison picture.
Why the Name Lisa?
Thanks.... Hint... Check the model's "ancestry" ;)
Linked!
Your comment could also mean:"Look for the source of the name Lisa in the other ancestry branch" but I didn't find anything.
Elvis Presley's daughter is named Lisa...

Bingo! I should have made it a competition ;)
