I've come out of a very long dry spell of instuctable publishing to bring you this, hope you enjoy!
When I first read about this contest in my weekly e-mail, I knew I wanted to create something light and airy looking. I also wanted to play with the unique structures that an additive manufacturing process such as 3D printing enables. The irremovable globe in a lattice-work of a snowflake suspended by chain link certainly would be hard to carve out by hand!
I think my favorite part of Christmas is snow and sledding, which I represented with a sleigh encapsulated by a snow flake theme. If you look closely, the cuts in the back of the globe are a wintery scene in a forest.
Thanks for viewing, and I hope I earn your vote.
Edit: added the .STL file
