A few months ago I had this T-Rex made out of lasercut .090 Aluminum for my son (He calls his T-Rex "Dino")and I figured this would be a good 3D print as well. I was correct.. :-)

"Dino" will make a great desktop companion or an awesome gift for a 8+ child. (8+ includes grown men like myself... Ha!)


All that is uploaded thus far is the .STL file of the complete assembly, which is ready to print with no assembly required. I will be uploading the 26 individual T-Rex parts as .STL files as soon as I get around to it so that you can assemble your "Dino" on your own for much more added fun.

The picture that I have uploaded is of the .090 Aluminum model that I made. My first attempt at printing the plastic model didn't go very well as I scaled the model down to far and the plastic was REALLY thin. I will upload a picture of the plastic model as soon as the support material is removed.

I have provided a photo of the 3D Printed "Dino" along witht he .090 Aluminum model.

Hi. How do you do to have all the object supported ? Because with cura, even if you change the supported angles, the back of the T REx is never supported all, so it is not possible ti print it.

What did you use to cut the aluminum?
(looking for specifics beyond just "laser")

I use to have a glow in the dark version of this that I got with my subscription to Dinosaurs! magazine, however over time and being a kid, I broke it in half due to it fighting with Toxie the Avenger :P

I miss that magazine and I miss that T-Rex -_-
