Star Wars Snowflake ornaments for your christmas tree

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals, and a merry christmas!

I stumbled upon these, and thought some of you geeks in here might appreciate them as much as me, so I thought I would share them with you:

They are 2D snowflake cutouts in the shape of various starwars characters and spaceships... With very little work, these are very much 3D printable, and make for some fancy christmas tree ornaments :D

I already tried a few, like this R2D2:

 

 

I saved the preview image from the website linked above (not the pdf), cleaned it up i photoshop to make it pure black/white, as well as some of the holes expanded a bit.

Then used Photoshop CS6's 3d features to extrude the image into a 3D model (I found that this yields better results than letting Cura read the image file directly), and voila!

    • "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.
