A new Gyroscopic Ornament for Christmas Trees!

UPDATE 2015-11-21: Added a new version star_ornament_02.stl with reduced (0.2 mm) clearance in the joints, instead of 0.5 mm in star_ornament.stl.


I have not printed it yet, but it's not so different from Yet Another Gyroscopic Christmas Ornament, that have no print issues at all.

it may spins better and prints easier with chamfered edges.

Is there a way how to put names into the ornament? I have tried 123Design and FreeCad, but the STL file is not shell, therefore can not be converted into solid and text can not be "subtracted". Any idea? Thank you very much.

I would try with Blender.

Its a remix of a remix of a remix of a remix :) Happy Holidays!

Great idea, thanks for sharing!! However, all stars just fell apart when I printed this ("axle" nubs not long enough?) -- is it supposed to be scaled for printing and, if so, how much?

I added a new model with reduced clearance in the joints. Let me know whether it is better now.

Hi MarcoAlici,

We printed from _02 file. Made in 4 different sizes, works well.

Great job!

I saw. Very clean prints! Nice it works well!
merry Christmas! :P
