Triceratops Test Print

Creation quality: 5.0/5 (2 votes)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

This triceratops comes directly from ExampleData within Mathematica. When my students, another teacher, and I were first learning about 3D printing, this little triceratops was our test subject. As we were learning we printed all sorts of different combinations of rafts, supports, perimeters, infills, etc.

We typically printed with the "smooth" version that was smoothed using the 3D Builder program in Windows.

This is the model I feature in my Introduction to 3D Printing video.

3D printing settings

Full size of model is approximately 66 x 200 x 88 mm. We printed most of ours at 50% scale using a wide variety of settings.

I am a high school math teacher and 3D printing hobbyist. I have been 3D printing since 2017 and enjoy making things for my classes and my own children and home in San Diego, California, USA.

I design with Mathematica, CorelDRAW, Fusion 360, and Tinkercad. I love my MakerGear M3-ID and my Palette 2S Pro. I have a Prusa MK3S as well. I started a 3D printing sub-site, but it needs some updating.
