Description

Make one for yourself, your friends, and your family.

For best results, print this star in PET / PETG / T-Glase; it has been tested for many hours with this material and transmits the light beautifully. Clear ABS should work also. PLA has not been tested and it is unknown if it will withstand the heat generated by the LEDs. It may work, but use at your own risk. The two halves are a tight fit. You must have your extrusion factor calibrated nearly perfectly. Assembly instructions included for download below.

Looking good. I had to print the star in 4 pieces (8), my printer only prints 120x120x120, and glue the parts together :-)
