The 3D Rex skulls are 3D printed using Selective Laser Sintering in a plastic material that is light but also strong. The makers claim that it actually feels like a fossil, with the material feeling more like wood or stone rather than plastic. The Medium size is available in various colors, blue, red, violet, pint, black and white. But the small and Wall skulls are only available in white.

The T-Rex is many people’s favorite dinosaur and this skull model is a great way to appreciate the awesome power that these creatures had in the past. Normally T-Rex fossilized bones are only found in a select number of museums around the world, but this project will bring history straight into people’s homes.

“It is a novel way to display a prehistoric legend in the home.” – Mashable

The Namisu team’s goal is to create decorative sculptures for the home by using the latest manufacturing techniques. 3D printing is also giving us the opportunity to appreciate the work of famous sculpture artists in our own homes. These fun projects are showing how 3D printing is bringing art and history to a wider audience rather than a being a technology that at the moment might not be relevant to a lot of people.
