There’s less than a week left to the New Year’s Day, so if you haven’t decorated your place or chosen presents for relatives yet, it is high time you did it. If you have a 3D printer, you can solve the issue in an extraordinary way by printing cute ornaments and souvenirs instead of buying them. We have selected 10 ideas of 3D printed decorations which will inspire you to create.
Original 3D printed presents for the New Year’s Day
1. Checkers with little candies, for example, M&Ms or Skittles
The author of the idea is Giuseppe Finizia. He used Zortrax M200 but, according to his words, one can use any personal model.
2. Uniquely shaped snowflakes
Laura Taalman, also known as mathgrrl, has created Snowflake Machine which can do models of unique snowflakes basing on mathematical algorithms and changing parameters. 3D printed snowflakes are always different which means that you can create your special souvenir.
3. Original cookie cutters
Baking cups make a wonderful present for foodies. OogiMe specialists have posted cookie cutters in the form of Santa Claus, bells, deer. Besides, Mathias Peshek has modified Snowflake Machine for it to create special cookie cutters in the form of snowflakes.
4. Christmas moving decorations
bqLabs has presented models of decorations – Santa Claus, elves, deer – with moving arms and legs. Support will be needed during printing but it can be easily deleted afterwards.
5. Figures of festive deer
Several years ago, a user nicknamed Yeg3D published a 3D model of Santa Claus’ deer. It can be easily printed, painted and decorated.
6. Christmas tree with a snowflake base
The original model is similar to a usual spruce but it has a beautiful snowflake at the baseline. A user named Genapart uploaded a 3D file on Thingiverse. By the way, several people have already printed it and are very glad.
7. New Year’s decorations in the style of minimalism
Maarten Kurver, a Thingiverse’s user, has posted stylish decorations which are printed piece by piece and are collected with the help of glue or a 3D pen. As a result you get quite interesting decorative products.
8. A greeting card with a festive deer
The idea belongs to Tony Short. He offered to make a flat card in the form of a set which can be used to collect a deer’s head. All models for 3D printing are at free access.
9. Compact festive lights
In order to create a luminous base you’ll need several details, CR2032 battery, a 5 mm LED and a switch. You can also print a cap in the form of a Christmas tree, a snowman or a candle. It looks really beautiful.
10. Glass Christmas tree
MICRON3DP Company, specializing in glass 3D printing, has decided to make a glass Christmas tree. It won’t be possible to re-conduct the experiment on a usual 3D printer but you can create the same plastic tree. Especially since all the files for printing are at free access.
