There is now a shorter and cheaper version of this ornament which consists of the same design but only has one snowball for a body.
This is a 3D printed snowman (roughly 14cm/5.6in tall) made from 3 interlocking swinging hollow intricate snowballs modeled in the style of snowflakes, within each snowball is a smaller snowball which is hanging from an axle within the bigger snowball allowing it to spin when blown on the top or bottom edge (using a straw is easier but it works well without) creating an interesting optical effect which can be seen in the video below.
This design can be manufactured in no other way than 3D printing as it exploits the technology's incredible ability to trap objects within objects and create moving parts within a design.
There is a small attachment at the top which allows the ornament to be hung up using a piece of string.
Take a look at my Customized Spinning Bauble Ornament
design which consists of one of the snowman's body sections scaled up and a customizable message or name 3D printed trapped in the center!
This ornament is designed by myself and 3D printed on demand for you, it is 3D printed in one go and comes out the 3D printer already fully assembled!
