A black dragon skull I made in ZBrush, referencing the iconic D&D black dragon.

So far I have done a successful print with the Anycubic Photon printer, but I have not tried printing this with a filament printer.

The file will come in at a very small scale, you will likely have to scale it up to 1000% scale in order to get it to fit right, as it was exported directly from ZBrush.
To also get a good print, I would also recommend rotating the model so its nose points up, so that any and all supports(because supports WILL be needed) are along the bottom/back of the skull.

If you make ANY successful prints, please let me know!

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
