'Fire & Bone' is producing a line of 3D-printed animal skulls derived from high-definition scans of original specimens. Although it may seem grim, many people are fascinated by the beauty and structure of animal skulls. This company uses 3D printing to give consumers a glimpse of realistic skeletal remains.

The company specializes in designing true-to-life jewelry and collectibles derived from real animal remains. To create the miniature skull replicas, the designers rely on high-definition scans of original specimens. These skulls are then digitized and manufactured using a 3D printer. To give the products a sleek finish, the skulls are then cast in metal. Each of the pieces is available as a pendant or a collectible.

Although skull-inspired accessories may not be for everyone, the 3D-printed animal skulls are perfect for anyone who is fascinated by skeletons.
