Dinosaurs


#1

I made these Dinos from plans that I found around the internet. I cleaned up and modified the files to cut on 1/8 plywood. I’ve included the SVG and DXF files for all of the Dinos.
I Made the tolerances for a tight fit. I found a nice hammer to tap the pieces in place here http://cartonus.com/hammer/

You shouldn’t need any glue. If there any loose fits, I found this glue works great. It is very thin and sets within seconds. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002FORR2I/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?

Yes, Thingiverse is a great resource if you know how to clean up the files. Nice dino collection! :grinning:

Thanks for sharing! And good find on the hammer…I’m going to make one of these.

Very cool! They look amazing. Thanks for the files!


#7

Thank you for sharing!


#8

Thank you for the files. Your models look great. I am still learning how to clean up files to use on the GlowForge.

Well done. It looks like when the grandkids come over, Batman will be visiting Jurassic Park. :sunglasses:

Dinos are so much fun! :slight_smile:

If you like these, you might like to try the anatomically correct dinos on makecnc.com. They’re not free, but the models are a lot better than the basic ones you find on the web.

Example:

Search of the models yields quite a few:

How can it be an ‘Anatomically Correct’ dinosaur if I can’t tell if it’s a boy dinosaur or a girl dinosaur?


#14

It’s all in the hips :slightly_smiling_face:


#15

No, that’s how you tell Saurischian dinosaurs from Ornithischian dinosaurs.

Don’t let the fact that it’s illustratedfool you, this is a pretty deep dive. The author studied as a paleontologist before getting into comics.

how do you change it to work with 1/4 plywood?


#18

To work with 1/4 plywood, scale up the pattern. Then cut a couple of smaller pieces and check the fit.
You could also measure the thickness of the plywood, then scale the pattern so the slots match the measurement.

Thanks
