Top Twelve 3D Prints for Christmas

by Jason King on November 16, 2015

Yes I know it’s only mid November at the time of publishing this, but with all those Christmas TV adverts starting to appear, we can’t help looking ahead to Christmas… and how expensive it can be.

To help feed your need for 3D printing, to help reduce the cost of Christmas (a little) and to make it a bit more fun too I’ve decided to compile this list.

It was originally going to be the top ten 3D prints for Christmas, but I found thirteen. As twelve is synonymous with Christmas (12 days, 12th month, etc) then I decided to drop one and go with twelve.

Right, now we have got the maths out of the way, grab your white, green and red filaments and start downloading some of these Christmas beauties…

Holed Christmas Ornament

These things look pretty cool, especially if you 3D print them in different colors, as per the picture. The holes make them cheaper to print too, bonus…

Christmas Gift Box

This is the first of two Christmas gift boxes, there’s another similar one further down the page, but with curvier corners…

If I hadn’t run out of white filament 3D printing Tyrannosaurus Rex skulls I’d definitely make this one. Maybe I’ll make it in yellow. No yellow snow jokes please…

SnowmanSnowflake

Aha, I remember this one as I made loads of these myself last year. I even took orders off people and gave a few away. Beware, when you make one everyone will want them…

Christmas Cookie Cutters

Besides being about presents and of course religion, Christmas for many people is a little about eating and drinking too much too, so why not try these Christmas cookie cutters…

Christmas Tree Star

This is another one I 3D printed last year in translucent filament as per the picture and I also put a little light in it too…

Wearable Reindeer Antlers

I had to include this one, just for the picture. I cannot recommend you print these for your dog (disclaimer over) but for nights out they’re pretty cool for people…

Christmas Tree Ornament

I really like this one and I’d use it not just for the tree, but almost anywhere, maybe even outside on your front door…

Gift Box

Another gift box to add that personal touch to your small presents. I guess you could scale this right up and use it as a biscuit tin or something too, just an idea…

Spiral Ornament

This one looks like it’d be quite easy to 3D print, but by looking at it you’d need to print it the other way up and use a raft. I might make this one myself…

Holly Push Pins

To spice up your cork pin board (or whatever they’re called) in the office, why not buy some red pins and 3D print these green holly leaves too…

Snowman Mold and Maker Kit

Although these twelve objects are in no particular order, this one is my favourite. It’s just a little pointless in the UK as it only snows once a year and never at Christmas…

Ok that’s the twelve, one for each day of Christmas. There’s an idea, anyone willing to take up that challenge, 3D printing one per day?

Feel free to send me pictures if you make any of these, or just post them to our brand new and FREE 3D Printing Facebook Group so we can discuss them.

Now it’s time to start downloading, 3D printing and photographing… after you’ve Liked and Shared this post with your festive friends of course.

Thanks for reading.
