a skull I sculpted to practice anatomy and face proportions. Its not 100 anatomically correct but its a good likeness.The jaw is attached to the skull making it easier to print. I have added an additional model file appended with "_orient" which is rotated so that it can be printed upright.

Really like the detail you achieved. I've bought at least 20 different skulls from Ebay at 1/6 Scale. They were put in a western scene with a hearse wagon. Yours looks very accurate and very detailed. I'm sure they were using a 3D printer, then made a mold of that one to produce them in Resin. Don't make anything to sell but I sure purchase a lot of things. Really great job and thank you for letting me view it. Thanks again, Michael
