Introduction: Christmas Angel Ornament

About: I am an artist, author, and collector of smiling frogs.

This angel ornament, designed using clay and software, can be 3D printed without supports.

I live in Florida and am a US resident.

Step 1:

I created the body using polymer clay. The "backbone" was a pencil and the body was six inches tall.

The body was scanned using a MakerBot Digitizer, then reduced in size. The larger model enabled the scanner to pick up more detail. The wings were designed using AutoDesk 123D software. The wings and body were combined using TinkerCad.

The file was printed using PLA at 10% fill, .2mm layer height with 2 shells.

Step 2:

I printed without a raft and without supports.
