Dilophosaurus Skull

Dilophosaurus Skull 3D print model


Hi guys,

this is my design of a 1:1 scale Dilophosaurus Skull. High polygon model ! Hope you like it. If there are any questions left feel free to ask. Have fun printing !

Size of the skull: 600mm x 380mm 175mm

Printer: Creality CR-10

Nozzle: 0,4mm

Layer: 0,1 - 0,2 mm

Speed: 50mm/s

Infill: 10%

Support: yes

Painted with reeves SAND and then weathered with Marabu Acryl Color and Liquitex Burnt Umber

You have to print the connection 4 times. For the stand I used a 6mm diameter metal rod.

I have 3 questions: 1 "For the stand I used a 6mm diameter metal rod." this means I print it everything, glue all parts, and then do I stick a metal bar like the one in the photo? Has the hole already molded for this? 2 "Painted with (...) and then weathered with Marabu Acryl Color " wich colors do you use? 3 you glue all and painted after? Tks, amazing work!

1: correct, you can print, glue and paint everything. Afterwards you just attach the print to the metal rod. 2: I used the colors i mentioned in the description. Those are all brown tones (started very bright to a dark brown) 3: I painted the parts first and than glued them together (except for upper jaw 2,3 and Sail 1,2 --> which I glued first and then painted)

Amazing. Any plans for more? I'd love to see some flying or aquatic dinosaurs as well.

Thank you...next a full size t-rex skull...no plans what im going to do afterwards :)

Have you considered like a mosasaur or plesiosaur or ichthyosaur something aquatic like that?
arric 2021-07-30 19:22:54 UTC
Not now...but maybe in the future. Of course those would be intresting

Can the pieces be printed with a printer whose print volume is 150cmx150cmx150cm?
arric 2021-01-02 04:50:29 UTC
Hello, here's a list of the biggest parts. As you can see thus model can't be printed 1:1 scale with such a small print volume. For the Dilophosaurus: "Lower Jaw 2.1 (2.2)"= 46x91x240mm "Lower Jaw 4.1 (4.2)"= 53x71x291mm "Sail 1"= 76x171x207mm "Sail 2"= 86x139x203mm "Upper Jaw 2"= 126x190x239mm "Upper Jaw 3"= 175x216x242mm

Could this be printed on a printer with print volume of 220x220x250 wxlxh? Many of the parts would have to be printed vertically, too. It seems only "Lower Jaw 4.1 (4.2) exceeds the maximum, could that part be split in two and glued together?
arric 2021-06-18 06:50:18 UTC
You´re right…., of Course you can slit the parts using free Software like meshmixer or simply your slicing Software. (there are a lot on Videos on YouTube that´ll help you)….Maybe you can Position that part diagonally and vertically so it may fit. Kind regards.

The splitting of this skull is great. I would prefer to have the attachment points be dowels as opposed to pieces fused to the model parts as I print with an FDM printer and this would have made the printing process alot easier and faster, but regardless this is a great model.

Good quality model. Printed as expected. Clever set up on the parts connecting really make the Dilos skull look museum quality when properly post processed.
