Summary

This is a derived version of Gian Pablo Villamil's Rocket Ornament (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37750)

This has been hollowed out, with some decoration added to spice it up a bit. Put a CR2032 battery and a red LED inside for a nice glowy ornament!

Instructions

If you're printing at home:

Print in 2 pieces (top and bottom) and glue together.

If you're sending it off to be printed in plastic:

Use the whole model. If you adjust the scale in the .scad to around 0.9 you can get the cost down to less than $20.

If you're sending it off to be printed in ceramic:

Use the whole model. You will have to modify the .scad a bit. Increase the hull thickness (lower the scale in the inner_hull() function), then re-export. The spiral holes might have to be adjusted too so they don't get clogged when the model is glazed.

Hi, I made a button cell battery holder that fits into an enlarged version of this rocket ornament. I enlarged the rocket to be 5.5" tall.
Here it is, in case it helps anyone...

Button Battery Holder for LED

Great rocket, btw. It is very cool!

Um.. A cr2032 doesn't fit in this rocket, at least, the one I printed. I am going to make it larger. Are others having this issue?

Why do you suggest printing two halves and glueing?

Brilliant, I love it!
