Step 1: The Gingerbread Man

Assemble a gingerbread man using these shapes.

Group them all together to make one connected object.

Make sure that the back side of the gingerbread man is flat by building all new objects on the same workplane.

Step 2: The Hat

Create the hat with three stars and two cylinders as shown.

Make the stars as flush as possible with the hat such that they wont be a hindrance to the printer, but are still visible.

Step 3: The Final Product

Put the hat and gingerbread man together, turn everything the correct colors if you want, and you've got Gingerbread Man Uncle Sam!

Step 4: The File

Download the gingerbread man as a .stl file for 3D printing!
