Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.


3D model description

Fossil scan of a partial lower right jaw of a type of Mosasaur.

Though not dinosaurs themselves, Mosasaurs lived at the same time as dinosaurs.
The original fossil has most of the original teeth broken off. So in the digital reconstruction I have used the one remaining tooth and reshaped it to fit the other tooth positions where the teeth had broken off.
There is also a pathology on the side of the jaw where the animal was injured at some point during its lifetime and it left an indent on the bone.

Prognathodon sp.

Age: Maastrichtian, Late Cretaceous

Location: Khouribga, Morocco

.stl files at life size. Includes the right jaw in original and reconstructed state as well as the mirror versions that serve as the left side.

3D printing settings

Can be printed in one piece. Splitting along the length would also be an option. When split no support would be needed and both sides would get nice detailed results.
