Museum-worthy SLA t-rex skeleton, from 3Ders.org:

This inspiring Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton has been designed and printed by Peregrine 360, a 3D design and print company based in Montreal, Canada. While a relatively young company, they offer a wide range of 3D creation services, including scanning, designing and 3D printing.

…After receiving the [Form1+] printer and taking it on a few test runs, they decided to test the machine to its limits. ‘When we received the printer thats when the fun really began. After a few prints and having understood how the printer worked we wanted to truly test the Form1+’s capabilities. At the same time, we wanted to create a model that we are passionate about; a dinosaur. So we designed a Tyrannosaurus Rex to a high level of detail with small features to test the printer’s limits.’

The complete model is approximately 45 cm long and some 30 cm tall. As is obvious from the pictures, it involves a number of different components. As this model 3D printer prints in resin, rather than plastic, it will obviously require a curing period as well. For the curing, a high frequency light system was used (UV), which rapidly cures the printed components. ‘That is why it looked like the prints were being baked’, they explained….

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
