My father was a carpenter. When I was little he made a whole bunch of these intricate wooden Christmas tree ornaments that slitted together. So here is my MakerBot version of it.


The slitted version simply fits together, so just print out two of them and perhaps add a tiny dab of glue.
The other is just a flat snowflake.

Really great-looking and easy!

​Congrats! Your model has been chosen 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)

Hey, would you add one slitted version with a hole in it? To put some cotton, that will be easy to hang on a tree.

Would be perfect!

Nice story behind this creative model! 

Any chance of posting a dxf file of this design so that us poor laser cutter folks can also make? thx

Nice design! This is one of my favorite things to watch print.

You will see in my picture a whole snowstorm of snowflakes. The red, green and blue flakes give snow of that color and fruity tastes.

Each of those flakes will be attached to major Christmas presents to family members this year.

The white flake gives the standard snow.
The black flake produces similar colored snow as the coal that Santa left in the stocking of all the bad boys.

On the other hand, the yellow flake produces snow
that everyone’s mother warned that you should stay away from.

I just printed a blue snowflake. I plan on putting one on each guife I give at Christmas.

The thickness is 2.57mm, but the slot is 3.7mm.

Can you narrow the slot to 3mm? This might even allow a friction-fit.

I'd like to mail a couple of these flat for my young niece and nephew to then "assemble" and hang.

Thx, Jon, they are perfect!
