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:


Very nice, thanks for sharing!

Awesome fun!

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!

Thank you for sharing!

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.


Search of the models yields quite a few:

Thanks for the info. I looked at the site, and the prices are not bad. I will probably try 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?


It’s all in the hips :slightly_smiling_face:


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?

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.

I made the cutout of the last image and nothing would connect. I believe the connection cuts needed to be wider.

Brilliant, kids will love these! :sauropod: :sauropod: :sauropod:
