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!
