This christmas tree model comes straight from the laser cutter, ready to assemble. 16cm (9.5 inches) high, this is an ideal christmas decoration for your home, workshop or makerspace; it's really quick to cut and slots together with no glue.
Update December 2016: changed the licence to CC-BY-SA, so it's clear that commercial reuse not restricted.
Cut the stand from 3mm sheet material. I used mdf, but plywood and perspex should work too. Once cut, the two larger pieces will slot together snugly, but they shouldn't need to be forced.
Cut one of each of the Foliage files from green A4 card. 200gsm inkjet/craft card is ideal, but it will still work with paper. Once cut, gently hold the inside of each foliage sheet and pull the edges down, to pull the card into a cone shape that is as tall as the stand.
Then place each foliage sheet onto the protruding top of the stand so that they sit over each other and push slot in the star into the slot on the top of the stand to hold the foliage in place.
Use a colour other than green â€” there's plenty of choice in artificial trees, so go nuts!
This is a quick progect (the foliage sheets take me 2mins 45sec) and the card & mdf is relatively low cost, so this is great for demos or teaching
You can print the Foliage files for cutting by hand with a scalpel/craft knife too.
