A bauble with 8 random snowflakes and 4 stars.

Can be used with or without an LED inserted in opaque or translucent PLA or ABS.

I printed this one with 2 shells and 0% fill.

Each time you execute the SCAD file you will get a different 8 Snowflakes thanks to David Eccles excellent snowflake script http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:39685

Is that purple PET?! Where did you get it? i cant find any... :(

Makerbot translucent purple PLA

Ummmm... There seems to be a stray floating cylinder in the middle of snowflake bauble #5 file, perhaps in the others.
The openScad file won't compile for me either, but that's probably my problem.

Huh. Miraculously, after like 20 layers of trying to print in midair, the filament was able to rest on some of the spaghetti of extrusions to actually construct the cylinder. It then continued to build up the cylinder up to the top.

That's the miracle of Christmas! ;)

My kids really love these, quite a bit bigger than I first imagined, but fantastic when printed full size of bigger - we printed out a load of them for their bedroom trees at the weekend. They print really well using the spiral vase setting in Slic3r for anyone out there with a RepRap :)

The look great, glad your children like them!

So very nice! - I have some special filament for these magic little prints - The kids will really love these, thanks Mark.

Thanks Rich, glad you like them. I have a few more Ideas, if I get time...

I do Love me some 0% infill prints!

Indeed, why waste the filament where you can't see it :)
BTW, saw picture of you with Bre at the new Makerbot store!

Yes had a nice visit at the store opening.
He actually gave me a spool of the slate ABS
(which was a really nice surprise).
I spoke him probably for too long (as I'm a windbag).
But was a really nice time!

I'm in Boston this week, so I'll try and get to the one here if I have enough time.
