Featured Thing!

Description

My father was a carpenter. When I was little he made a whole bunch these intricate wooden Christmas tree ornaments that slitted together. So here is my MakerBot version of it.

Instructions

The slitted version simply fits together, so just print out two of them and perhaps a tiny dab of glue.

The other is just a flat snowflake.

You will see in my picture a whole snowstorm of snowflakes. The red, green and blue flakes give snow of that color and fruity tastes.

Each of those flakes will be attached to major Christmas presents to family members this year.

The white flake gives the standard snow.
The black flake produces similar colored snow as the coal that Santa left in the stocking of all the bad boys.

On the other hand, the yellow flake produces snow
that everyone’s mother warned that you should stay away from.

I just printed a blue snowflake. I plan on putting one on each guife I give at Christmas.

The thickness is 2.57mm, but the slot is 3.7mm.

Can you narrow the slot to 3mm? This might even allow a friction-fit.

I'd like to mail a couple of these flat for my young niece and nephew to then "assemble" and hang.
