I released a new 3d-model for a canine nose:

A friend of mine tried making some models with two component foam (you can buy the chemicals to make extremely light foam) and used 3d-printed molds to make the parts. The downside is that the chemicals are expensive, cannot be stored for a long time and are extremely toxic while working with them. I do not have a workshop - so I have never tried that myself.

Another friend tried to make a very light 3d-model and used Shapeways to print it (it's a mesh-like structure - super light and flexible) - expensive, but far beyond what my 3d-printer can make. The structure was a bit too thin and did break.

I have not found very light filaments for my 3d-printer and the models require at least 2mm wall thickness to be strong enough. Good fake fur or anthron fleece does also add a lot to the weight.

The makerspace I just joined has a printer that sculpts out of paper. It's not technically 3d printing, since it deducts material rather than adds it - but I think it's gonna be a great solution. Paper is super cheap, and the end product both looks good and is very light-weight.

Most layered paper 3D printers are very slow and do not produce water-/sweat-proof models. I know someone that uses paper-models for vacuum forming - that produces really lightweight shells.

I made this new model specifically for Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3d-printers. The shape is similar to the head-base of my skunk puppet. The lower jaw was made specifically for this head.

I uploaded the models to Shapeways - my percentage is 0 (I can't make it any cheaper).

Here's a new model for a racoon head. I did not make a model for the back of the head, nose and ears.

You can get the model at Thingiverse: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1293161

I changed the raccoon head-base a bit and uploaded the second version to http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1293161
The new model has smaller eyebrows and a relocated jaw hinge. Holes were added to make it easier to attach the fur by glueing or sewing.

Your work is very impressive, but they are just realistic enough to creep me out a bit.

Good work!
