I really liked the Velociraptor Business card by Cleven but i have no need for a business card, so i "un-business-carded" it, extruded it and made it much bigger so it assembles effortlessly and looks cool on your desk.
It is ca. 23cm in length and 11.5cm in height.

The head parts (The parts with the teeth) produced a couple of misprints on an Ultimaker 2, maybe it is a good idea to print them separately.

If you want to scale it just scale the STL file, it should still be intermateable afterwards.

I included the vector forms (Inkscape SVG file) which i extracted and corrected from the .dxf the original author included.

To extrude the SVG in OpenSCAD (Which can only import STL or DXF files) i used this excellent Inkscape extension: Inkscape OpenSCAD DXF Export

Also check out this longer tail for balance from galiettd!

I have a larger more detailed model (I think I sill do at least) I can post if you want.
That one can be seen in the images humping the card version.

ok, but more detailed means in this case just a normal tail and longer legs, i assume otherwise it will not stand, but these legs do not look good (original) imho...

It stands actually. The legs are closer to the size of the actual skeleton scale but it doesn't look right lol.

yeah well, nothing is really to scale on this model, that's why i like it so much, a really realistic model would not look so cute ^^

one question: did you design it yourself?

I looked at actual dinosaur skeletons and dinosaur puzzles and didn't find anything that would fit, I looked at how things assembled as in how arms were connected or better shapes for assembly. Once I knew what i was going for I then drew what I wanted on paper (easier than trying to do it in a program), I then moved it to solidworks, and extruded to shape. I eventually moved parts around, re-sized, removed parts and made it as compact and small as possible.
