hi I'd like to edit this design to make a hole under the base, where can I find the file?

Comments deleted.

What plastic did you use to print this... PLA, ABS?
Very nice scan!
I'm looking for a scanner and am glad I found out for free that Cubify is 80-90% worthless. Suggestions on a better scanner? 5 digit priced scanners are out of the question. This is for home use only.

maybe a bit late,

you can make one yourself using an turntable (with steppemotor/servo)
and an XBOX kinect scanner

what was done to get the dark shadowing? is that part of the print (if so how) or done after the print (if so how)?

Hi, I would like to create a derivative of your skull in dualstrusion (two colors) with my dual color printing 3d printer. I would like to print the designs on the skull in gold and the skull in black. However, to do so, I would need the file of the original skull you used to put the cool celtic designs on. Please post that file here as an *.stl file. Thanks.
P.S. I would of course accredit you and abide by your license terms when I post my derivative on Thingiverse.

Hi latigerlilly, the original skull actually featured the celtic designs - you can see it in the second photo. That was one of the reasons we thought it would be an interesting object to scan.

Just printed at max size for the Rep 2x in Glow in the dark filament. Took 16 hours and 14 minutes! Turned out great, but the ABS formed cracks in some spots. Has anyone had that issue?

Very nice! How did u print it in blue? where did u buy the paint?

Looks like a job for Duo(:

in makerware the front of the jaw will not go on platform stays floating. help?

Great scan. Do you have any photos of the original? Be nice to know how large it was.

Hi Steelyd, we've uploaded a photo of the object. Hope it helps!

So is the one you're holding the original, the actual carved object? What material is it? Sorry for all the questions, just love the model/scan.

HI Steelyd, it's some sort of plastic made to look like bones. Yes, the photo shows the actual object.

If it's a copy, I'd love to know where to buy one.

Holy crap, I love this model. Estimated print time 12 hours...damn. Might hold off on printing it, but soon.

Thanks for the kind words. We think it's pretty cool too:) Once you DO print it, post it...we'd love to see it.

Saw a few of these at Maker Faire NYC 2012!

What are people doing to get nice prints of this? We're trying to print it and we're seeing a lot of weirdness as the extruder pauses where there are minute facets too small to amount to an actual step in the motors. I see some of the people who printed it, though, have nice clean lines on the perimeters.

This model isn't laying flat on the platform. I'm going to fix it but don't want to post a derivative just for that.

This link is now dead. Could you re-post it? Thank you so much!

I was hoping the creator would have uploaded my fix by now. I'll repost it shortly. You should be able to find it at the following link soon:

Oh sure, NOW I read the comments after I fixed it in Netfabb. Hey, check out my progress!

It looks good so far! Keep up the good work.

Nice. This is getting printed tonight.

Any designer/modeler infos?

How about software used?

Or was this a scan of a real object? If so great job on the internal areas.

I'm glad you like it. It's a real object that has been scanned with Artec S 3D scanner. Looking forward to see it printed ;)
