A massive 40-hour print of a Saber Toothed Cat, Smilodon fatalis. The final print measures 12" from base of skull to tip of jaw and was printed in Gold PLA from SeeMeCNC. I ended up printing this in four pieces so I could fit it on my printer and I glued it together with super glue.

Is this the same one they had on Thingiverse? http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:472463

Yep, except I scaled it 2.5x.

Beautiful. What 3D machine do you use?

@Thomas_Chandra We used a Makerbot Rep 2 on the one we built, but we could have a made a HUGE one on one of our Lulzbots. We used warm gray for the skull and khaki for the teeth.
