Thingiverse user pleppik designed a 3D printed advent calendar which has a box for each of the 25 days in December through Christmas. And inside each box there is a small 3D printed "gift". Finally the boxes could fix together as Lego to form a shape of a Christmas tree.

Each day from 1st of Dec to Christmas pleppik will upload the design of a box, up to now he has posted 7 of them. And he needs some great ideas for the rest of gifts - so if you have any, don't hesitate to tell him in the comments.

Here are 3D prints of each day's parts until now:

1. Day 1: An unopened present laying at the bottom of the Christmas tree.

2. Day 2: Part of the base of the tree, another wrapped present.

3. Day 3: A toboggan - "Just watch out for the trees at the bottom of the hill."

4. Day 4: Star Wars Holiday Special

5. Day 5: A toy train - This model will require some support to print.

6. Day 6: Snowman

7: Day 7: A candle to light the dark winter nights. - "I printed this using Octave's orange glow-in-the-dark filament, so the candle will even put out a little light."

Finally the 7 days calendar: - cool!

Bill never delivered any of these, took the money and ran (claimed bankruptcy). You can see the whole thing here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wjsteele/ultra-bot-3d-printer/comments personally, I lost $1,100 on this scam. sad to see he's trying it again :-(

Oh dear before you commit to this, please see the Kickstarter discussion on Bill, and the pi-maker http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wjsteele/ultra-bot-3d-printer/comments

I was one of the Kickstarter backers for this project. Originally we backers paid for something called the Ultra Bot ( http://www.kickstarter.com/pro... ) At the estimated time of delivery for the Ultra Bot - Nov/Dec 2012, This printer, the PiMaker was announced instead. I paid for the top tier pledge of $1449.00 for one of the first ten fully assembled and ready to print units to be made. Over a year later I have not received anything to date, while many others have received non functioning parts & assembled units. His website is offline, and he's not returning emails or calls. If you have purchased one of these units, be sure to ask for an in-person demonstration if you can, to ensure it's functionality before accepting it. The design looks fantastic, and may turn out to be a good printer in the future, but be VERY careful if you're considering paying for one.

While Bill Steele has sent both parts and full units (most not functioning) to other backers, over a year later I have not received anything to date.
