3d model description

This design features multiple (3 or 4) outline style Christmas stars that spin independently on the centre shaft. The shaft runs from the smallest sta...r through the outer stars to the mount / end cap. The end result is a 'new dimension' in Christmas Star decorations.

This is a straight forward, easy one piece print that doesn't use much filament and produces a smart moving (rotating) decoration. There are two versions and two sizes of each type as follows:

Hanging - This version has a top mounting hole so it can be hung up. Files provided are for 3 stars (116mm x 120mm) or 4 stars (153mm x 158mm).

Tree - Made to be used on the top of a Christmas Tree. It has a thin hole up the centre so it can be mounted on top of artificial Christmas trees with a top stem up to approx. 4mm in diameter. Alternatively, insert a rod or skewer into the hole in the base of the star to extend it's length then secure it to the top stem of your Christmas Tree with wire, cable ties or similar. Files provided are for 3 stars (116mm x 133mm) or 4 stars (153mm x 164mm).

With an accurate slicing app and well set up / precise machine the design should leave all parts free to move straight off the build plate (with Raft removed). Scaling up should be no problem but scaling down more than about 5% may result in the parts fusing so unable to move independently.

Print one for the top of your tree and more to hang from your tree or other places as bright / colorful and unique decorations for use over the Christmas period.

Please refer to the print settings and images for additional information... and post images of your Spinning Christmas Stars on display.
