This is a 3D print of a Christmas decoration with Santa inside it.

The part has been successfully built in SLS (EOS Formiga p100 & EOS P700) by i.materialise. The decoration was designed by Nicolas de Jaegre and is optimized for the EOS SLS process. The part has additionally been both designed and tested for use with a high degree of recycled powder. We have not tested to see if it works on Makerbot etc.

hey, love this file but my print wasn't good. have any tips? i'm new to this. I used supports and a raft.

Awesome! Your model has been featured as one of the best 3D Printed Ornaments this year! Search "Top Free 3d Printed Ornaments Printing Ninja" in google to see (sorry thingiverse bans url addresses)

I have tried printing this on the makerbot replicator 2x and it just wont go. jus not good enough yet I guess.

As you are clearly promoting your business, and 'chapeau' for that, how do you rate yourself against e.g. Sculpteo? Presumably, Mr. De Jaegre has had one made by them too ....

You Sir, make My Cupcake cry.

I know right?

I'm sorry guys I didn't want to come off too commercial here. I'll tone it down in future. We want to share designs and want to be a part of Thingiverse.

Nicolas was actually a design student that did a short internship with us.

Having said that, we're the best 3D printing company in the world of course! Been doing this for 20 years.

Lol, it's not too commercial, I like it, And this site isn't JUST for makerbot/reprappable pieces, commercial stuff is sweet too. I just know whats going on the dream board of things I'm going to try and be able to print by next christmas! :D
