    Folks,

    You have made this forum so useful and have been so helpful to me. Thank you!

    My "handmade" family Christmas gifts this year are snowflake Christmas Tree ornaments. The one I am including here was created by fractal generator software and then a little post processing by me.

    I am printing it for my family in eSun PET-G clear at 840mm/min, 0.1mm layer height, fan at 10% after layer 2, hotend at 243c and bed at approx 80c.. Fill at 75% (a little is needed for this version, with triangles if using Simplify3d). Try printing it using only outlines and no solid top or bottom - it makes it sparkle more that way!

    If you want them to look clearer (more like ice than snow) print at 0.3mm layer height.

    Update: I forgot to say that I print 2 of them and solvent weld them back to back. I weld just the tips together; the solvent I am using makes the clear PET-G look frosted/white, so I don't use too much.

    The solvent is called Scigrip Weld On 4. I also have some "3" which is faster setting that I haven't tried yet. I think it is pretty toxic stuff...
