3D Printed Christmas Tree LIVE On A Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer
This is one of my favorite 3D print designs of all time. This design created by 3DCentralVA on Thingiverse.com utilizes a unique trick where the 3D printer prints the “branches” of the tree in mid-air causing the molten plastic to drop forming what is called a Drooloop. These branches form the classic curled that makes the exterior of the print look like a real Christmas Tree.
This will be a live look at the time lapse 3D print that I have posted here:
This is one of the few 3D prints that I think is more enjoyable to watch live as the droops just don’t stand out on a stop motion photo video
About this 3D Print
This 3D print will be printed on a Creality Ender 3 Pro 3D Printer. After each .2 MM layer the 3D printer pauses, moves the extruder to the rear of the printer, takes a photo and then continues the print giving the illusion of the print appearing from thin air. These printers can be purchased on Amazon for around $200-$300
This video will be filmed using Octoprint connected to a Raspberry Pi B with a Wyzecam Camera. Total print time was around 6 Hours with each layer set to .2MM This print used Solutech’s Camo Green filament available on Amazon.com
