Snowflake Tree Ornament for your Xmass tree and/or gifts.
Source is Rhino 3D format (version 3.0).

Initially I haven't printed this out due to storm tossing the boat around that night. But hearing that we're likely to have a supply of PLA soon in the US I felt inspired.


Ideally to be printed in PLA so it's transparent but are waiting for Makerbot Industries to have it in stock in the USA.

I made my first successful 5cm print into a Xmass Pendant.
and a smaller (dainty) 4cm for my girlfriend.

I imagine the source file could be converted and lasercut in acrylic as well.

I've exported to STEP (.stp) if someone wants to play around with the source some since that seems to be a more universal format than Rhino3d.

There's gonna be a host of snowflakes on our tree this year! Plus, my sister is planning to make earrings out of the 2cm snowflakes I printed her! :)

very cool. thanks for the update.
It's great to see a design being used half way across the world!

I have yet to get a successful print since my heat barrel broke in half last night :(

Hopefully ordering a replacement assembly from MakerGear in a day or two. I just want to get back to printing and quit mussing about fixing things.


Thanks for posting pictures of your prints. I still haven't gotten to fixing my bot yet. Though it Looks like I should push out a couple larger sized stl files from the original.

Unfortunately my Plastruder broke down and I haven't been able to print out my own design yet.
