T-Rex for Objet Connex 500 by techknight Mar 4, 2013


I had the opportunity to print a dinosaur at work ( www.3dphacktory.com ) on the Objet 500, so I remixed IcanCwhatUsay's Tyrannosaurus rex to be larger and use multiple materials. :)

Because of the way that the original was created, it was easy to isolate the eyes and teeth in Netfabb Studio and move them into separate files.

In Objet Studio, I imported the three files together as an assembly, and chose a different digital material for each one.

  1. Download the three STL files: body, eyes, and teeth

  2. Start a new tray in Objet Studio

  3. Insert the three STL files as an assembly

  4. Choose different materials for each part in the assembly

  5. Print!

NOTE: I used Shore50 on the body, and it made the legs just a little too rubbery for the dinosaur to stand without leaning back on its tail, so I recommend using something more rigid.
