LED Christmas Tree by pauloricca Dec 8, 2009

Featured Thing!

Description

This is a model christmas tree printable on the makerbot with a slot to insert a coin battery and an LED to illuminate the piece from inside! Merry Christmas and Happy Printing!

Update: corrected a bug in the model that made it print without the base!
Also, this updated version is smaller then the previous one avoiding some problems while printing the top

Sweet lil thing! I always knew it was exactly what I was going to print first when I got my printer. Oddly, I always thought it was totally hollow, illuminated simply by covering a light underneath. What a pleasant surprise when I printed it tonight and noticed that you actually built in space for a battery and led!! Our minds are somehow going in the same direction because I've been just recently making some little lights with led housings over at shapeways. It's really cool to see how yourhousing is different, more simple, and yet effective.

Thank you Whystler! I just saw your led housing at shapeways.. that looks quite interesting!
I'm glad you liked the model! :D
Cheers!
