Step 1: Initial Sketch

Because of how the sketch is made, the rings that will be created will be completely independent of the body of the ornament, however they will not be able to come off due to the track they are set in. Effectively this means that these rings will be able to spin once the part is made. Later on I will add in features to each ring and their ability to move will allow for customizable images.

Step 2: Revolved Boss/Base

Step 3: Add in the Top Ring

Step 4: Sweep Boss/Base on Top Ring

Step 5: Add in Faces

Step 6: Add in Middle Sections

Step 7: Add in Bottom Sections

Step 8: Add in Snowflakes

Step 9: Convert File to a .STL File
