My trio of 3D printed ornaments is complete, it consists of the Captured Snowflake, Snowman and now this Customized Spinning Bauble Ornament

This is a customizable bauble ornament: within both of the two balls, which are modeled in the style of intricate snowflakes, are two lines of text that can be customized during the order process by the buyer, each line of text can hold up to 10 capital letters (if spaces are included, these count as letters of the 10 letters per line), the whole ornament will then be 3D printed for you with your message or name trapped on the inside (the example featured in the pictures and video has the message "MERRY CHRISTMAS" in the center).
The inner of the two balls freely rotates on an axle and spins if you blow on the top or bottom edge of the inner ball (using a stray is easier but it works well without) creating an interesting optical effect (watch the YouTube video).

There is a small grappling hook styled attachment at the top which allows a piece of string or thread to be attached to the ornament so it can be hung up.

I have designed two of these ornaments with preset messages inside, the first with the message "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and the other has the message "HAPPY HALLOWEEN" (available at the respective hyperlinks) these are cheaper to buy as no customization is necessary.

Take a look at my Snowman design which consists of three of this bauble ornament scaled down and interlocked with each other in the style of a snowman (it even has eyes and a nose!).

This ornament is 3D printed on demand for you, it is 3D printed in one go and comes out of the 3D printer already fully assembled!
