3D Printer in a Tree Ornament

It's a classic Christmas ornament with a twist, it contains a 3D Printer! (how meta) What better way to showcase your creations than printing a tiny version of them to put inside a holiday tree ornament :)

The ornament is made of 3 printable pieces: the top, the bottom, and the build platform. They are easy to print, and require no supports. Simply glue the top and bottom together using a glue gun.

The build platform can be moved to adjust its height within the printer (jog-mode not included!)

Can be customized to look like your favorite 3D Printer. Mine is the Ultimaker 2 extended, of course. I used a label printer to produce the various stickers.

There are 5mm holes at the bottom and top of the printer to put LEDs hi-lighting your creation.

Can you guess the story between the green and red Makeys? There seems to be drama there.
