This is a little sleigh I made for a Lego Santa mini figure I have.. the lego bumps are a tiny bit off but will snap in with a little effort.

I also made one without lego bumps for use with the Makerbot man or any other small figures.

I added the shortened Connectors so that it can print on smaller build platforms


Prints without support and just snap together.

I printed mine with an infill of 15% and a layer hight of .20mm with 2 shells..
thought it should print fine with default settings.

The harness to sleigh connection is a bit tight but I did that so it wont fall off once it's connected.
use a pair of pliers to squeese the end to make it fit if nessary..

I used some left over filament to make the reins but you can use string or what ever. it's also fine without reins.

Congrats! I thought you model was one of the best choices for a 3D Printed Christmas gift! I made a link from here: http://3dprintingninja.blogspot.com/2014/12/top-20-free-3d-printed-christmas-gifts.html

The bottom of the connector for the reindeer is slightly higher than the reindeer so prints in mid-air.

 really?.. maybe my build platform is a bit warped cause it printed fine for me.. I'll fix the file and reload it.

I found that too - the connector piece only started printing after the first layer of the reindeers. I have just extracted that bit from the STL and will print it on its own after the sleigh has finished printing. It might be a good idea to upload a single reindeer and the connector piece separately to allow people to arrange them to suit their own printer. Good job though, hope to be submitting a "Made one" soon.

 well I fixed it and loaded the individual files too.   Thanks! look forward to seeing you print

That's brilliant. One question though - when you say in the instructions that this SHOULD print without support - have you done it without support? My sleigh (without the Lego bumps) started to print in mind air when it was around 65% through. I ended up stopping the print and am using it without much of the back canopy thing above the parcel shelf. (My daughter has been decorating it to cover up some of the mess I could not remove too well).

 Oops.. sorry about that..
I've only actually printed the lego version myself..
I must have accidentally removed the wedge when I took out the lego bumps.. 
 I've just reloaded the file with the wedge back..  now it should print with out support no problem..
