Customize and print your own christmas tree !!
Can be hang or stand on a nice foot made from 5mm plywood for example.
There's also 3 differents types and sizes of christmas tree available for download directly in .stl
Save the forest, don't cut trees ! Customize it and print it !
Play with the customizer to generate your own tree from simple ones to torture test for your printer playing with size, branche and torsion parameter.
You can also download already done stl file or look at the remixes ... I'm especially glad that bre have customized the hightest and most twisted christmas tree for the christmas ornament contest: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:201963
Merry christmas !
Made with OpenSCAD, extruding different size of nuts (thanks to MCAD library) into cylinder.
I also add reversed cylinder to avoid 3D print problem. I have already made several tests and it seems to be OK.
I've added the possiblity to choose the way you would use it:
- with a wood foot to your printed tree, you just need to cut and assemble a small cross in a little piece of 5mm plywood.
- hang it with a small thread in the top of the tree
- with both or none of these function.
The file can also be use as a good stress test for printers when you increase the branche and torsion parameters !
Please send me your result ;-)
