Xmas Tree Ornament
by christinachun, published
I thought it'd be nice to make some Xmas ornaments to give as gifts and then share the design with you all on Thingiverse! I've uploaded a generic 'Merry Christmas' version and a blank version as well as a version with a hole to tie a string to if you don't feel like drilling a hole with a Dremel.
I printed these on my Afinia H-Series 3d Printer (UP! Plus). It stands at about 5 inches tall. The settings that I used were 150 microns with loose fill.
Use your favorite 3d program to add text. Make sure the text sits on the 'branches' and are thick enough so that it's not too thin. I think I used a minimum of 8 or 8.5mm thickness on the letters.
I printed mine standing up. I didn't bother trying to print it flat. I'm not finished with my ornaments yet but I think I will be painting the letters and the star to make it really pop!
