#3DxHolidays – Advent Calendar by pleppik #3DThursday #3DPrinting

PC184796 display large

Both designed and designed to be printed over the course of the month — this is how desktop 3D printing re-interprets the Advent Calendar:

This advent calendar has (will have) a box for each of the 25 days in December through Christmas, and a small “gift” for each box. The boxes fit together to form the shape of a Christmas tree.

I will be posting a box and gift each day until Christmas. I will try to get each day’s parts posted the night before, so you will have time to print it on the proper day.

This Thing will eventually have all 25 days of parts. I will also post each day’s parts as a derivative of this Thing, so there will be a convenient place for any “I Made One” posts of the daily pieces.

THANKS TO EVERYONE who contributed ideas for things to make. I got a lot of great suggestions, and I wish I could have used them all.
