Very nice thank-you. I managed to print out the Reindeer and Santa, but unfortunately the Elf fails every time on the Head - the Ball joint does not stick to the base so fails.

This was brilliant. Made multiple Papa (Santa), Elf, and Deer prints. They all turned out wonderful with few flaws. Both Papa and Elf had some problems with the back of the head. This was minor and probably could be sanded down. I love the movements in the neck, wrists, shoulders and hips. They look so funny when I mount them on top of the reindeers. They actually fit and stayed up. Thanks!

Santa and Elf fail at evey time, Deer printer no problem.

Made the reindeer and santa these things are unreal. Worked first time on medium Robo 3D R1 plus no hiccups 220, 55 degree bed

So far I tried 3 time and the Santa where the head starts, falls apart and I get spaghetti on the printer. Not sure what I am doing wrong. Otherwise beautiful models and great idea. Thank you.

I have the same problem with Santa and elf. 80% and 85% scale, infill 15, PLA

The first one I have printed worked fine: http://www.thingiverse.com/make:279996

But now it always fails, like you described. I thing there is a small gap between the body and the head. Maybe it depends on the slicer whether the print fails or not.

Maybe someone can fix that.

I printed three of these at different sizes to present to my kids on Christmas morning, as a clue to our big family present (the printer)! My first prints ever and they came out perfectly. Absolutely adorable! Thanks so much!

These look spectacular! Definitely going to build a set.

Best Xmas decoration on Thingiverse. Great design and function! Perfect on Prusa i3!

My first print, amazing quality and design thank you

These are amazing designs. They printed great, the print-in-place joints separated easily.

This is one of my favorite prints from Thingiverse in a long time.

Brilliant design!
Print in place worked perfectly - I printed at 80% scale without any support or raft and it looks great and moves very smoothly.
Thanks for the great design!

Hello, do you need raft?

Wow Shira, these are great. The print went better than expected and I enjoyed playing with these toys. Of course, we all play in our own unique way. I've created a video of my build which you can watch at https://youtu.be/nu1TSXP3tm0

Wow. Must print now!!!

These are simply amazingly sweet! :)

I love these - and more importantly so does my wife. I made 7 elves and a Papa Noel, painted them and am going to give them to the family as tree ornaments. I did have several problems when printing (almost always the same spot in the same arm - right arm). But even with the frustration of failed prints they were worth it. Thanks.

These are absolutely the best. Great design, great print, great job!

Wonderful thank you

I made papa noel at 150% scale, painted him, and made a time lapse video! Check it out.

These are truly masterwork. Really great little examples of what can be done with 3D printing. Just fantastic!

My only complaint is that, at least for me, I have not got the arms to move. My two theories are that the body exterior collapses slightly towards the edge onto the ball pivot. The other is perhaps the support for the arm in the inner part of the model is too rigid? I'm just learning so any thoughts are helpful.

Really fantastic models, though. This has made many friends jealous of my printer!

Un travail d'artiste BRAVO, c'est super

What infill pattern did you use?

Yeah, I saw that value in the description... What PATTERN? Concentric, hexagonal, rectilinear?

I use rectilinear, but I think hexagonal could be better

Greatly appreciated! Happy Holidays!

What paints did you use for painting these? Looks really good.

nail polish its cool to paint it

acrylic paints for model from Warhammer ^nh

These are amazing.. Ive printed one of each and will probably print more... just haven't had much luck with the deer... his head keeps snapping off... and the legs on santa are far superior than on the elf.. not sure why???

What speed did you print the elf at .. I am having problems with the print failing at the point where the head pin starts to form.. it seems there is not enough of the little supports to hold onto the arm ball sockets and the neck ball socket when they start to print.

I have the same problem. 3 times at the same please. :(

You are a true artist that really knows how to design for 3d printers. I am amazed. Great work, and thanks for sharing- printing these for use in a Gingerbread house competition as part of the scene.

It's so cute!!
I love your design!!^^
