Lots of tiny snowflakes for some kind of winter/holiday use. The snowflake designs are from a vector-graphics snowflake patterns file on Zezu (http://www.zezu.org/beautiful-snowflake-patterns-vector/). For step-by-step instructions on an easy way to turn a picture into something 3D printable, see http://makerhome.blogspot.com (days 70 and 71).
These are also remixed as thicker, hangable ornaments at http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
SNOWFLAKE UPDATE 2014: Now you can Customize your own unique snowflake by making a sketch that "unfolds" into a design, just like when you make paper snowflakes, at http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
SNOWFLAKE UPDATE 2015: This year you can create algorithmically-grown snowflakes from a random seed and use sliding parameters to control the style and form of the design of the snowflakes, at http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... with .3mm layer height makes these one layer thick, which makes printing very fast (about 3 minutes per snowflake).
