    that's my point, is it really "printing" anything? You print on paper

    the printer uses a standard HP InkJet cartridge and the powder is layered with resin to make the build. By layer, I mean very thin layers...

    Is that material pretty hard or is it fragile?

    its hard -- once it is printed and depowdered, it gets glazed over with the equivalent of crazy glue that is only slightly liquified more than usual so that it spreads. This heats up as you apply it due to some chemical reaction going on in the glue and the powder resin. If it were a color print, it would make the colors pop. The skulls were white, so not so much, but it makes it pretty durable. These were done on an older model printer, the ones out now are even better.

    I also have done a life size. crocodile skull.

    the human skulls came from a cadaver.

    If you notice the lines, normally these would be sanded down a bit, but I only needed them for props so it didn't matter to me. The newer printers wouldn't have such obvious looking layers showing.
