How nice it is to design a 3D model on an uncomfortable, grey winter’s day, or to choose one and watch the home 3D printer build your favorite object layer by layer in the warmth of time! Soon it will be Christmas and here and there some decorative items are missing to get in the mood for the holidays!
Here an oversized Lego tree, which does not only delight children’s hearts! It is easy to print and no support structures are required. Depending on how much time and filament you want to invest, you can build the tree with any number of layers. Maker “jubei700” recommends 9, then the tree looks best. The layer with the largest circumference fits on the printing bed of an Anets A8 (22 x 22 x 24 cm). The individual pieces can be simply plugged together afterwards, but a little extra glue makes the piece even more stable.

This idyllic winter scene with a snow-covered house and details such as a Christmas tree, a small fireplace, a snowman and a frozen pond was created in a Prusa i3. Maker “Mathi_” advises against supporting structures, as they can probably not be removed from the detailed object without leaving damage.
