Hello world! In the spirit of this week's carnivorous chordates I've made a great white skull!

These files are huge so I recommend tastefully resizing them down but the full size is pretty fun. I also used rafts on all of my prints but no supports, no glue.

I hope you enjoy!


Everything is snap fit together with printable pegs (included)- no glue! I printed without supports but included rafts.

The two jaws can even be adjusted up and down a bit with snap in teeth. Watch out though those teeth can come out sharp so please be advised around small children!

Any advice on how to attach the bottom jaw to the top jaw once they are fully printed? I can't seem to get the hinges to snap in and I'm afraid of them breaking if I force it too hard.

Could someone provide the physical dimensions of the final print at 100%?

Awesome design! Had a personal issue when printing the mandible, any advice how to separate the jaw from the teeth and pins so I can just print the LT/RT lower jaw?

Thanks exactly what I was looking for, much easier than Solidworks or Alias

are Great white sharks this buck toothed? I don't remember seeing pictures from the front they are always sideways

What are the other 3 pieces that's on top of the teeth?

If I get time gonna remix this into false teeth. Best Halloween costume idea.

How to print the RTtop and LFtop without support?, do i have to rotate the model on my slicer, because i try it just like it enters and have a really mess after 3 hours when i was printing the RTtop and it begins to trough the filament on air.

Another thing i want to separated the RTtop file, i mean remove the teeth and the pins, that i already printed before it fail, so i can print only the part for the jaw again, any suggestion about which program to use for that?

Having real issues printing either of the bottom jaw files. I have printed the rest of the files with no issues but the bottom jaw stops extruding at about 33%. I tried various methods of exporting with the same result.... Any tips to get this to work?
(printing on replicator 2)

Any lessons learned when printing the Top Jaw sections? Does it require supports?

Just wondering if anyone would be able to print this for me and I'll cover the costs and postage. Would love to have a couple of these for an art project.

I'm based in Western Australia.

I still needed to repair these STL files before printing, I recommend netfabbing this everyone.

Any chance we could get the pegs as an additional file? the current pegs aren't strong enough laid out straight up.

That Thing just looks AWESOME :D
Really curious to know what kind of software you use to create those shapes/models ?!

Love it! I cant wait to print it!

what type of machine was it printed on?

Are these STL files arranged to just load up in Makerware and print??

If anyone decides to move all the actual jaw pieces around to fit on Rep2 please post the .thing - thanks!

Depending on what size you want to scale this to, you'll probably want to do one part per plate. But if you experiment with more per plate, check back and let us know how it goes!

Ah ok, I've been printing one by one. One thing I have noticed though is that the pins printed vertically just snap when scaled down. They would be much stronger if they were printed laying flat :)

My middle schooler is going to love this! Can't wait to print it out for him!

WOW...Can't wait to print!

Schweet! Not sure I'll get a chance to print it this week but it's on my list of to do.

I am amazed and horrified!


perfect on the top of my tv x)

The serrated teeth are awesome - nice detail.
