What are you guys making for CHRISTMAS ?? with your ultimaker 3D printers ?

 

Its starting to into Christmas time a little and I wanted to know what you guys are making with your ultimakers ?

As a little fun project, my girlfriend and I used 123d to create 3d models of our heads.. then printed them off with .06mm layer height, then took our printed models.. all 4 and poured liquid silicon around them. let the silicon set and then baked it for a few hours, so the bad little chemicals were burnt off.. then made a wonderful mix of chocolates and created praline shells with the moulds.. After that we are filling them with diferent yummy fillings and sealing the bases off with more chocolate..

Its incredible what an ultimaker can allow you to do at home :-)

 

So what are you guys going to do ?? :-)

Ian :-)

    Provided mine arrives with enough time for me to print, I'm planning on getting a bunch of gold PLA and printing out custom baubles, probably containing the year and a slot for a family photo.

    My nephews only want money so I will print out a little "maze box" for them so they'll have to work a bit to get the cash. Last year I created a derivative of a puzzle box: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:37217 Unfortunately they solved that one in about 2 seconds flat. The new one will be trickier :D Once I have something printed I'll post pics :)

    Aw yes :D One kid finally cracked it after having finished opening all his other gifts. The other kid gave up for the night and it was still closed when I left :p

    Judging by the comments over at Thingiverse (I'm at #4 on the most popular list btw ;) ) it is a very frustrating puzzle :p

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
