A nice Tyrannasaurus skeleton project. I have printed mine to make a nice desktop model. I'm going to upload the photos as soon as possible. But I'm sure you find better way to use it. Good luck.


All parts were named, numbered and signified which one belongs where. Also you'll find complete T-Rex model which you can figure out which part should come together with which one.

When printing parts, be patience and take a notes. I also uploaded blueprints which have specified parts name on it.

Technically, I've glued mine with cyanoacrylate adhesive but failed. If you print these models out of PLA, I recommend using "Hot Melt Trigger Glue Gun" which can be found commonly in local stores or follow the links below;




Actually I didn't have a chance to print this with ABS. So, I can not say which glue is better with ABS.

Some of the parts here are not the same scale it seems? For example L-radius-Ulna is too small? Would love to print this, but not until everything is fixed :/

This is fantastic. I would love to see a larger version with pegs that fit with the original Makerbot T-Rex skull (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:308335) so we could print part of the spine and use it for the stand instead of just using a pole.

i'm try to print this model but some of part size so small and can't finish work , is it true can finished all parts together like picture ,by the way i'm used cubea ware FDM, may I ask which kind of machine model do you with ?

Sorry for the late answer. I'm using makerbot Replicator 2. Some parts are indeed small for the smaller scale. I suggest you to try print bigger scale if it's possible. If you get another printer like "form one" (resin based printers) smaller scale doesn't matter.

Hi sylvar, i need help with the scaling issue as I am using an UP! printer as well. Could you help?

Comments deleted.

Hi there, can you elaborate your problem? I'm not familiar with UP software or printer. There must be an option to scaling up or down in your software.

There is a scaling option. However, I am not sure how much I should scale it. For example L-metatarsal 3 is 67.19x 84.32x62.51 which is way to big from the rest and I am not sure what should the correct size be. Thanks for replying

I think there should be an option to scale uniform x,y,z. You should use uniform scale to %50-60 to all default imported parts. ,but watch out for the automatic scaling when you import a part. Some softwares compile the size of parts for the workspace. If there is an option like that in your software's preferences, switch off. I hope that would work :)

So I finally figured it out, Afinia wont recognized the stl unit, makerbot does have the feature that I was able to export from makerbot software.
All the parts are good now.
Sorry about it, now I can build the model :) :) :)

Sorry to be a pain, but as I don't have Makerbot software and I use an UP! like you, how else do you think I could fix the scaling issue?

I'm glad it worked! Good luck mate ;)

Some parts are out of scale when I individually print them.
They are not matching.
Great design, and hopefully i can finish printing them all

if you name the parts I can gladly take a look and fix them Thanks for the feedback :)

Bravo. That's a lot of pieces!

Like sgraber said, your google-fu is better than mine. Thanks for sharing this! It looks like you put a lot of work into assembling this. The results look great. I will definitely be using this as another reference as I continue to design my skeleton.

Thanks Joefe. I'm looking forward to see your design as well.

Awesome! Where did you find the skeleton to produce the STLs?

From the internet. But I don't know who originally created it. A lot of site shared this model. I only changed the skull part completely. The other parts, I slightly modified.

Your google-fu is better than mine as I looked high and low for one. This is getting printed. :)

I hope it's gonna be fine. Awaiting your result :)
