Christmas Stocking as a container with twisty top #3DThursday #3DPrinting

muzz64 shared this great holiday 3D print on Thingiverse!

The Christmas Stocking Container is a screw cap container that looks like a Christmas Stocking. At standard scale the internal storage area is 35mm in diameter and 80mm tall… so plenty of space for small treats!

This is an easy print but does require good build plate adhesion to ensure the stocking prints well. Print the cap in white and the stocking in red…

This design can be scaled up but scaling down will result in insufficient thread clearance so the cap and stocking won’t screw together correctly. Printed at standard scale on a well set up PLA machine with a filament fan, the parts should screw together easily straight off the build plate.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
