A 3D printed Triceratops showcased at Paris’ Musée national d’Histoire naturelle
This ultra-realistic triceratops will make you think of natural sciences, more precisely of paleontology. In order to drive visitors to the museum’s exhibition and to bring history to life, Metropole, out of home (OHH) print provider, has 3D printed a triceratops.
With 1.8m-wide, 2.33m-long and 3m-high (5.9ft x 7.6ft x 9.8ft), the reptile has been manufactured in only two days thanks to the 3D printer Massivit 1800. Indeed, “using the Massivit 1800’s unrivalled print speed of up to 35cm / 14” per hour and dual print heads, METROPOLE was able to meet the museum’s stringent deadline by producing the triceratops in just eight components. Once assembled, the company strengthened the construction with ballast to guarantee the dinosaur’s longevity during sustained interaction within a public environment. To ensure even greater lifelikeness, Metropole’s cinematic artistic team then covered the dinosaur with a textured surface to achieve its natural-looking skin, while also producing realistic eyes to enhance its authentic appearance.”
Amazed by such realism of this creation, the reptile is currently a real buzz among the crowd and visitors of the Gare d’Austerlitz railway station.
One more time, the large format printer of Massivit has done wonders. Remember the 3D printed head-turning skeleton created for the Mexican festival or the winter sports gear created using this 3D printer.
