Thanks a lot! :-) Do you see any way to make the stars hollow on the inside so that they look good with a LED light in the centre?

My experience is that if you make a hollow, thin-walled (to let the light shine through) star, everything is printed as overhang and droops out of shape.

I added two parameters and re-uploaded the .scad. You can make a hollow star now. I think that printing two half-sided stars and glue them together would be easier.

That's great! In my own attempt, I had tried to print a hollow half-star with only 2 perimeters, and that gave no good results.

Your approach to make the outer wall thicker will probably work better! It just occurred to me that if the greater thickness means light doesn't shine through, I can always use transparent filament! :-)
