Edit 8/12/2019: Fixed missing objects in sliced for plaque zip. Also I am still trying to figure out how to print the lower left jaw without dual extrusion and support filament. Maybe just cut all the spikes off at the base and print spikes seperately? When I start printing this thing I will update files if I go that route.
Scaled size is to match a human head. Units are Millimeters yet and therefore recommend scaling. Internal artifacts still persist from Boolean join operations but I don't think they should cause to much trouble. The end product will be sliced and have partial rear skull removal to allow the mount onto a wooden plaque similar to that of how a hunter displace taxidermy animals. I will probably put a light in the skull where the bullet hole is. When painting note that the spikes and ears have been sculpted to sort of look like some flesh is still attached in some areas.
A 3d pen can be used to add smaller branches and roots post print. I will use a 3d pen, glue, sandpaper, and soldering iron to smooth out the future slices when bonded together.
Inspiration came from the idea that the "natural man" can become so evil that he loses control of his divine side. maybe later I will list off Bible verses and Jewish studies found in the Tanya. I consider this model a metaphor for the corruption of an individual so vile that they are no longer recognizable.
whatever rings your dings Nothing that will warp.
In the sliced files, supports are must and will have to be STRONG and likely "every where."

Make sure to sand the contact surfaces just enough before gluing to eliminate the slight expansion caused by 3d printing.
Filament color shouldn't matter if you know how to paint a skull. Look up skull mask painting tutorials on youtube for help.
If you use the Sliced for plaque zip:
The branches have been lain out for for FDM printers. Resin printers may find repacking necessary to reduce the number of supports. In the file, there are pictures so you don't lose track of what is what and where they go.

how the branches are lain out for print
Scaled for human skull. Sliced for both plaque and non plaque. Plaque slices are lain out for easier printing. I think I did a rather garbage job at slicing so if anyone feels brave enough to slice it their own way feel free to remix and upload. I haven't printed yet but supports are a must despite my attempts to minimize. It took forever to slice so please don't me, I tried. The biggest offender will be the left jaw and it will likely require innovation or lots of glue when the spikes break off with the supports.
I added a partition block to the model to aid in measuring the divide between the two halves.
The complete tzaddik ("righteous person") has transformed his animal soul completely, to the point that it is able to reach intense Godly delight in its connection to Godliness, and is disgusted by all worldly pleasures.[chapter 10]
The incomplete tzaddik no longer desires evil in a way that will be externally expressed, even on the level of thought; however, a minute amount of desire for very subtle evil remains.[chapter 10]
The beinoni (lit. "intermediate one") possesses an animal soul that still desires evil, but he succeeds at constantly restraining himself from sin in action, speech, and even thought; this, however, requires ongoing tension and struggle. This struggle is not simply the confrontation between good and evil, but rather the ongoing encounter between one's two souls - the animal and the divine - the soul that draws downward toward the earth, and the soul that aspires upward toward Hashem.[chapter 12]
The incomplete rasha ("evil person") has committed sin without doing teshuva, but does good deeds as well.[chapter 11]
The total rasha has sinned so frequently that none of his thought, speech, or action are controlled by the divine soul (though it remains in an "external" state of makkif attached to him), and he is exclusively controlled by his animal soul.[chapter 11]
1 Corinthians 15:
42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
45 And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.
47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
Book of Mormon:
For the natural man is an enemy to God, and has been from the fall of Adam, and will be, forever and ever, unless he yields to the enticings of the Holy Spirit, and putteth off the natural man and becometh a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord, and becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father.
There are many other references in the same texts, other religious texts, and art but if I list everything I would be here forever.
My print progress and what I learned
My print progress and what I learned
So I finally dialed in my printer and figured out that abs acetone mix and blue painters tape is miracle cure for warp. Because of this and the fact I have way too much ABS and little in my bank account I am printing in ABS. On a high enough extrusion setting I (250c because my print head runs cold) I don't see de-lamination and a fat raft fixes the bed adherence. I was forced to print in .4 because my finer nozzle kept jamming.
Regardless... This is going to require significant sanding and chemical smoothing because all the details don't like the layers and the layers don't like the part orientations. At least with ABS, acetone smoothing after an eternity of sanding should fix this.
The support requirements on some parts make me cry for a dual head printer though.
I have also overestimated the size of certain parts and therefore some are pretty small so keep that in mind.
Lastly don't change filament mid print unless you know how your printer handles it or you have custom code because I did it and it messed up my x axis.
