skul3The amazing thing about owning your own 3D printer is that the possibilities are endless when it comes to printing out your next project. MakerBot understands that 3D printing is not just about the printer, but instead the entire ecosystem that surrounds the technology. From downloading a model, to designing and sharing your creations, to actually printing it out, a fluid enjoyable experience is what consumers lust after.

MakerBot has been keen on further developing the MakerBot Digital Store as of late, as they have released several interesting models. In fact, just last week they announced that they will be releasing a series of models targeted towards education, with each new collection they release including one model which is completely free. Last week, they launched the ‘Structures of Government’ collection which featured The White House, The Capital, and The Supreme Court building.

Here we are exactly a week later, and the company has just announced the release of three additional 3D models which make up their ‘Storied Skulls’ collection.

Available in this collection are a saber-toothed cat skull, ram skull, and the mythical dragon skull. Just like last week, one of these, the saber-toothed cat skull is free to download and print out on your MakerBot Replicator machine. The other two models will cost $7.99 a piece. Let’s have a look at some more information for each of these rather interesting skull models.

Saber-toothed Catskul5

  • Extinct for 11,000 years, you can bring this powerful animal back to life with the help of your 3D printer.
  • Price: Free
  • Pieces to print: 4
  • Estimated print time: 8 hours
  • Dimensions: 74mm X 114mm X 129mm

Ram Skullskul6

  • 3D print this skull with ferocious horns used thousands of years ago, prior to domestication, to fend off predators.
  • Price: $7.99
  • Pieces to print: 9
  • Estimated print time: 12 hours
  • Dimensions: 187mm X 151mm X 107mm

Dragon Skullskul4

  • Bring this mythical fire breathing creature to life with the help of modern technology.
  • Price: $7.99
  • Pieces to print: 5
  • Estimated print time: 9 hours
  • Dimensions: 152mm X 96mm X 104mm

The measurements on all three of these skulls are rather large as you can see above, so they are not just little dinky toys. Instead they are fairly large models which can be displayed in your child’s bedroom, and used as learning tools, or in the case of the dragon, a story telling tool. MakerBot also will make all three skull models available for just $14.99 in package form. Let us know if you have downloaded and printed any of these three models, and how they turned out. Feel free to post pictures in the MakerBot Skull model forum thread on 3DPB.com.
