Looks like he was sanded down but it looks really good.  I can see a few lines if I look really close on the top, althougth there are a few more lines on the bottom but it still looks really great.  I love the eyes and the mottling on the green skin.  Nicely don't there!

Thank you!

I also have a Spinosaurus waiting for paint from the same KS, already paitned the 9 gill shark( that was even worse, I used milliput on the bottom of the fins to smooth that one out)

It did make me decide to go for the resin printer since I mostly print minis.

Still they were rather cheap and it made me see what can be done.

 

I did always want a Cronosaurus mini and all in all it's a nice design.

Should have gone for the resin one in hindsight, but I'm not going to get another one.

Maybe if I find one with a different pose.

I like FDM for terrain and larger pieces and also when you can use a finer setting.  a lot of the time the print houses turn out things at 1 or 1.5mm layer thickness and that does not work for anything with a skin.  a 0.05 layer thickness provides a much smoother transition but it can double the print time.  Personally I am trying to talk a friend into getting his resin printer in operation so he can do resin prints and I can do FDM prints and we can trade between us.  For reasons I still don't understand yet, I don't want to be bothered with the curing process, not really sure why, I certainly don't mind playing with chemicals...

I just use a mask and gloves when cleaning the resin.

Then remove supports.

Curing is the easy part, out in the Sun or under a naildryer.

 

I on the other hand am reluctant to get a FDM printer.

I would like it for some large builings etc, but I feel there is too much fiddling with nozzles, clogging etc..

To me, I feel a resin printer is plug and play while I feel not technical enough to deal with a FDM one.

If you were my neighbour I would definitely trade projects.

I agree, really like how the eyes came out.

 

Thank you!

I'm happy you like it!

Another reason i don't swim in the ocean. 

 

It seems they're extinct, although I like to think that maybe...somewhere...a few are still around.

I mean we did think the Coelacanth was extinct and it's still here.

Nessie anyone?

 

Hmmmm maybe they live in the Bermuda Triangle, could explain some things.

Great basing and fine colour scheme. The print lines are indeed a pity, but maybe you can paint a second one up?

 

Thank you.

And no, because I got this as a physical print from a KS in FDM.

This was before I got myself a printer and I don't have the files.

 

But I do have several other things on file.

Next prehistoric seamonster is something I can print in resin myself.

When I get to it, it will be this one from Lord of the Print.
