We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
This year instead of sending Christmas Cards I decided to use my Makerbot to make something unique for my friends. And naturally the project took on a life of its own.
The final result was 20 Lego Men at 4x the normal size. Each inscribed with a holiday greeting.
Before dispatching them off to the world, I decided it would be nice to take all 20 brothers on a photographic tour of Kansas City.
Happy Holidays to all of the Thingiverse Community.
Print out all the parts in the colors of your choice.
Cut the support structure off the hips, and attached the legs to the hips using the leg pins. You will need to glue the leg pins in place.
Attache the arms to the Body using the arm pins. You will need to glue the arm pins in place. Press the Body Fringe onto the base of the Body
Slide the Face Mask over the Head and use a fine tip permanent marker to trace the face onto the head.
Press short bits of 3mm filament into the holes on the hat bottom, the press the hat top down onto it.
Now assemble like a standard Lego Man.
This thing was inspired by http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4004
Although all parts except the arms where remodeled from scratch
