We hope you’re beginning the brainstorming and design process for your very own 3D printable ornament. The sky is the limit for what you can dream up and some questions have started to roll in. We thought we should share some of the answers with everyone to help you all in your design process.

The biggest question that has come up is regarding colors. Some folks have asked,

“Can my ornament be printed in multiple colors?”

We have a two-part answer to this color question. The short answer is yes. But the long answer is that multiple colored designs will require you to submit the ornament file as individual solid bodies, one for each color. This sample of the “Olaf the Snowman” ornament consisted of 11 separate bodies within the STL file. Bodies were printed separately, allowing for different colors to be assigned to each piece.

Another question regarding color,

“What colors can my ornament be printed in?”

We have a total of 9 colors available for ABS Plus and they are shown below.

Please create your solid file in a color that closely represents one of these choices if you have a preference in the color.

And the last question is regarding the size of the ornament,

“How big can my ornament be printed?”

Your ornament (or ornament pieces) need to fit inside a 5”x5” build envelope, which just happens to be the perfect size for a nice ornament!

Please let us know if you have any questions of your own. Time is ticking so don’t delay in getting busy with your own 3D printable ornament design.
