Previously I 3D printed an enormous T Rex skull and custom life sized helmet by Markom3D. I was still coming to terms with the CR-10 Max so the quality was a bit average. In this video, I use a variety of techniques to transform these items into something I am proud of. The helmet now has a hammer tone metal appearance, the the T Rex skull has been weathered to appear like old, excavated bone.
This was really challenging for me, I’m super impatient with sanding and generally avoid these projects. With that in mind I’m thrilled with how they turned out.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
