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 :-)

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 :)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
