You should have bought all your Christmas presents by now, right? Time to turn the house into Christmas!
This might be a pain to an engineer’s eye, but the inside of this 3D printed metal filter takes me into the Christmas spirit. The diffused light shining through the holes of the filter looks similar to angle hair covered lighting on a Christmas tree to me.
I really like this 3D printed metal tree (also top image), designed and made by material researcher Olaf Rehme of Siemens Corporate Technology (CT). The special steel that Rehme uses for printing the Christmas trees is a nickel alloy, normally used for 3D printing gas turbines. Well, I think variety is the spice of life.
The last example of 3D printed objects for a Christmas spirit house are these 3D printed metal balls, 3D printed by Admatec on an Admetaflex. The Admetalflex uses Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology to 3D print metal from a resin formulation.
