Thanksgiving has come and gone, and the countdown to Christmas day has begun! As you bustle about, checking gifts off your “Give List”, adding presents to your significantly longer “Get List”, stealing just one more ball of cookie dough, and humming the tune of “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, why not put your 3D printer to work with some Yule-tide decorations?

Though many of the traditions surrounding the Christmas tree are staggeringly irrational, it’s impossible to deny the cheer that it brings to a household. If you’re looking for that extra cheer but don’t have the printer to make it, consider using a 3D printing service. With Craftcloud, the 3D printing and price comparison service from All3DP, you’ll instantly find the best price and provider for your needs, with no extra fees!

Now, let’s take a look at 10 fantastically festive models that are sure to boost your holiday spirit!

"Droop-Loop" Christmas Tree

What is it? The first Christmas tree model in this list is, by far, the most popular on Thingiverse. If you’re looking for a unique yule-tide hall-decker, this may be the model you’ve been waiting for all year. The resulting print is extraordinary, but make sure you print according to the designer’s recommendations. The Thing Details include much more, um, details, but here are the main considerations:

  • Only 0.3-mm or 0.4-mm layer heights will work.
  • Use a single wall (for the tree) and two walls with 0% infill for the inner core.
  • Don’t use retraction or part cooling.

Who designed it? SynJa

Who printed it? Don’t get scared off by the many slicing instructions. Over 50 Thingiverse users have posted at least one successful make of this design.

Where to find it? Thingiverse

What is it? If you’re familiar with 3D printed Christmas decorations, you’ve probably run across this model. It’s a big, bold, beautiful model that is sure to fill your shop with a cheery glow. You don’t even have to worry about excessive filament or time usage. This large model requires only four hours to print. Just make sure to print in vase mode with 0% infill.

Another perk of this holiday model is that it can be scaled easily in all axes to make it fit on your printer or to simply customize it into a fatter or thinner tree. Just keep in mind that drastic scaling could result in difficult overhangs for your printer.

Who designed it? idig3d

Who printed it? Seven prints have been shared on Pinshape, and nearly 300 have been posted on Thingiverse. Needless to say, this is a very popular Christmas print.

Where to find it? Pinshape, Thingiverse

What is it? This model is unique because it exhibits a beautiful snowflake profile. And if you think it looks cool from the side, wait until you turn it over. The bottom reveals a breathtaking snowflake. If you have a dual-color machine, be sure to check out his multicolor version. It makes the snowflake even more impressive.

Who designed it? Genapart

Spinning Tree

What is it? If you don’t know what a spinning tree is, don’t feel bad. Few do. For now, just think fidget spinner plus Christmas tree.

Jukka Seppänen, an extremely talented 3D modeler on MyMiniFactory, designed this wild gadget in the wake of the fidget spinner boom. Even now, this is a fun design to print and assemble with standard bearings and nuts you’re bound to find laying around in your shop.

After printing seven parts, you’ll be spinning into the holidays. Print with enough infill to render the tree structurally stable, but any more than 20% infill and 3 walls would be excessive.

Who designed it? Jukka Seppänen

Who printed it? Jukka has successfully printed this design. If you want to give it a shot, gold for the star, green for the branches, and brown for the trunk are clearly appropriate.

What is it? Assuming you know what Christmas trees and cookie cutters are, the title of this next model should explain it all. If you’re looking for a Christmas-y print that’s also useful, look no further. Your cookies are sure to take the cake (er, the cookie?) at this year’s Christmas party.

No special settings or materials are required for this model. As long as the cookies don’t burn, all will be smooth sailing!

Who designed it? OogiMe

Who printed it? 26 Thingiverse users have posted makes of this model. Their cookies look beautiful.

What is it? “Creepy” and “cheery” aren’t usually two words that go together… unless you’re talking about this particular fantastically festive design! Once you 3D print the ten parts of this Minecraft-inspired Creeper Christmas Tree, assembling the model is a breeze.

The designer suggests painting the tree green after printing, but if you have green filament on hand, that’s even better.

Who designed it? Penolopy Bulnick

Who printed it? You can be the first to share your make of this model on Instructables! The finished part by Penolopy looks fantastic.
