Atention: Deadly gift inside!
This is my entry for the "3D Printed Surprise Inside" challenge. From the outside it looks harmless. Too harmless so I decided to put a deadly weapon inside: The Star Wars Death Star! You can not only attach the giant space station
to your tree. You can also transform the tree into a great jewellery-gift-box for your loved ones. To transform the christmas tree into a jewellery present container just remove the Death Star from the
side-mounted hook and voilà! There is Your ready-to-use and recyclable gift package.
While designing this model I came across a little problem. The hook could not be printed without supports. On the other side, I could not simply remove the supports without breaking the hook. After some trying in "Fusion", I made the hook
thicker and added a rib to support the hook. It worked great!
I printed with a LAYER-THICKNESS of 0.2mm and NO SUPPORTS. I used the LIGHTNING INFILL option in "Cura" and created a Support Blocker around the hook. This way I could set the infill for the hook to 100% to get the maximum stability.
Tip: If you don't know how, you create and edit Support Blocker watch this Video from Filament Friday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=su_m5zV9rvA&t=306s
It worked great on my Ender 3 and I had a lot of fun creating it.
