Multi-Part Christmas Tree

We all know the saying, the more the merrier. So, for the happiest season of all, why settle on just one Christmas Tree when you can have multiple? Thanks to Gallaghers Art’s Multi-Part Christmas Trees, this is possible. With 3 or more parameter layers integrated into the files, users can print a Christmas Tree as well as decorations, gifts and space to put lights within the tree itself. These many print options mean that users can print many different, distinct-looking trees using the same files in ways that suit their fancy for the holiday season for some truly festive decorations. For ease of printing, Gallagher Art specifies the colors and brands of ABS filament used and the different parameters.

If you live in areas where this meteorological phenomenon is not very common, or too inconsistent to create snow figures, here’s a solution. Just 3D-print your very own large-scale frosty figure! All you will need are filaments in the right colors, so you don’t have to paint it later, and a 3D printer with a build volume large enough to create each part. According to the author of the design, once all the pieces have been printed and assembled correctly, the snowman measures 316 mm high and 175 mm wide at the base. What are you waiting for to start creating yours?

So, holiday lovers, you can’t leave them out of this year’s decor! Once again proposed by the designer yeg3d, he explains having used a 3D printer based on the FDM process to manufacture them. And in order to simplify the process, it also clarifies that printing does not require any media. The designer adds that at a print speed of 88mm / s, printing took 6 hours and 49 minutes. Finally, to get a colorful and shiny final piece, he recommends using metallic paint as well as glitter paint. All that remains is to place the 3D printed deer at the foot of the tree!

Star Tree Topper

In the biblical story of Jesus, the Star of Bethleham guided the Magi to the manger where Mary had just given birth to Jesus. The star has become an enduring symbol in Christianity, commonly featured in Christmastime Nativity scenes. During the holiday season, you can often find a star placed atop a Christmas tree and prominently displayed as holiday decor. We offer you this tree topper that can be 3D-printed using PLA. In addition to working as a tree topper, this design also works well displayed on a tabletop or any flat surface.
