Happy Turkey Day!
How's your Thanksgiving going?
It's festive time for eating pumpkin pie, roast turkey, wearing a pilgrim hat, playing games with the kids, decorating home,etc. Here I would like to share thanksgiving-themed 3D prints with you, hoping you have a bountiful and different holiday with 3D printing.
1. Turkey Card Holder
The card holder in the shape of a turkey is cute and can be frequently used on not only Thanksgiving dinner, but also office desk, weddings, graduations, anniversary parties and other occasions. Because this little gadget can be as a holder for paper memo, table number, card picture, etc. You could paint it in color of roast turkey, making it more real. According to the designer’s saying, print settings, it needs to set 15% infill with no support.
2. Personalized Napkin Ring
The creator made the napkin rings retro using brown PLA and custom names on the surface to ensure guests could find their seats. Through Fusion360 to customize, and related file was uploaded for everyone. It doesn't matter if you don't know how to use the software, the creator also gave a blank version of the STL file. As to print settings, it needs to set 25% infill with no supports or rafts.
3. Pilgrim Hat Planter
This perfect center decoration will definitely brighten your table. The hat is composed of two pieces: the brim and the top, and the former can be used as a spill tray. It is highly recommended to print it in a big size, for the reason that it has enough space to place more green plants and colorful flowers for a lush-looking centerpiece. Maybe Anycubic Kobra Max can help you, it has a huge build aera of 400*400*450mm that meet your need to feel free to print.
4. Knitted Cornucopia
The decorative cornucopia is a ritualistic object associated with Thanksgiving. Filled with fruits, vegetables and nuts, the horn of plenty is perfect as a tabletop display in your home to wish abundance and a bountiful harvest. After printing, you need to glue the rim and horn togther, or print the pins provided by the designer for alignment.
5. Cookie Cutter
How could there be no pumpkin pie on the Thanksgiving table? It is nice of the designer to post video for pumpkin pie platter cookie decorating tutorial. As to print settings, it is easy to print as long as you set 25% infill with no support and no raft. But safety comes first, make sure you're printing with certified food grade filaments, or a food-safe epoxy that applied to your print. Because not all 3D filaments are safe for direct contact with food.
6. Pumpkin Pie Earrings
Get some festive accessories to make people look nice and happy mood. The adorable pumpkin pie earrings would be the perfect gift for anyone who loves earrings. Everything can be printed directly except the pie crust needs supports. And you'll need to prepare metal hooks by yourself from discarded earrings or from a store.
7. Turkey Puzzle
After enjoying the food, let's relax and play some family games with the kids to promote the relationship. This simple and interesting turkey puzzle is a fun way to celebrate thanksgiving. It is recommended that scale the print's size up to 50%-100% for easily working and print the feathers in different colors of PLA for more fun.
8. Leaf Cuckoo Clock
This project seems not easy for beginners or someone looking for some quick-built gadgets. But it is indeed a delicate work of art, with so much detail that one can't take the eyes off it. And it is also a constant reminder that the best season is coming! Inspired by antique wooden clocks, the clock was printed with true brown, light brown, and peach PLA. For all pieces of printed settings and assembly instructions, check the link.
9. Mobile Leaf
Let's look for another project with leaves. Compared to the last work, this wall decoration is relatively easy for most makers. Just print them out with no supports or rafts and then rope them with a tree branch from the outside, you would get this somewhat poetic work at home. The designer remixed from 'Autumn Leaves', added integrated loops for hanging. To ensure the leaves can move with the wind, 0% infill is suggested to make them lighter for hanging.
10. Voronoi Pumpkin Lamp
The designer printed the lamp in two colors due to the shortage of filament, but the final result was unexpectedly cool! And the voronoi pattern made the lamp look fancy and illuminated brighter. It is one-piece and its bottom is designed to be hollow in order to put an LED tealight inside. Moreover, before printing the model needs supports. Hopefully you have enough filaments before printing for your Thanksgiving, if not, do a quick check and add Anycubic PLA in to your cart.
