3D Printed Skulls

My sister and brother-in-law already have a bit of a reputation for getting me cool/weird/unusual presents. For my birthday last week, however, they really outdid themselves.

These two skulls were made on a 3D printer and are from scans of a man with 'a serious brain injury'. My brother-in-law is a dentist and apparently these were in the office of a colleague who basically said they weren't using the skulls for anything and if my sister really liked them she could take them. Of course she was like: well, that's Ali's birthday sorted!

Even if they weren't skulls, the fact they were made on a 3D printer is awesome enough on its own. Those things fascinate me. It's like something out of the future. Now I just need to think of somewhere to put them.


  1. Awesome presents... and congratulations to your birthday, although they are late. ;)

    1. Aw, thank you. Yeah, I'm so chuffed with them x

  2. I've always wondered how a 3D printer worked! These are awesome Ali!

  3. It's so lovely!
    I wonder how would it turn out if you get one of those printers someday and print your own art. :)

    By the way, I just nominated you for the Liebster Award back at my blog, link here: http://blog.devannah.com/liebster-award-nomination/

    I'd love if you paticipate. Hope you got the time. ♥
