guru's "A Gekko" has clearly become an iconic cultural symbol of our generation, and so it seems only fitting that it boldly adorn our holiday trees.

For added sparkle, soften the plastic after printing and press-fit one 2-carat Tolkowsky-cut internally flawless diamond into each head, and dangle a single strand of tinsel from the bottom.

Display the heads-in variety to express unity and togetherness, and display the heads-out variety to instill fear.

WARNING: This is NOT a weapon, and should NOT be used as one. For a weapons-grade interpretation, see the Chinese Throwing Gekko at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29105


1) Print hundreds.

2) Cover tree completely.

5) Have a spot of tea.

(First person to submit a picture of an entirely gekko-covered tree gets a nickel. Bonus points if it's a dragon tree [Dracaena draco].)

These are 2mm thick, and around 90-100mm tall.

Love this, it's so cool. I really have to print some of these. They'd also make great window decorations printed out of translucent plastic!

How's that?  Two large gekkoflakes covering Rosie's Christmas tree... errr.... twig. (And a great tit flying by.)

Awesome! ...and I love the tree! I stuck a nickel in an envelope, wrote "AuntDaisy" on the outside, and dropped it into the mailbox. You should get it any moment now! :) 

Very kind of you.
We're going to be printing lots of these - thanks to you and guru.
