I have been road testing a Cel Robox 3D printer for a few days now and having a great time exploring the possibilities and printing interesting items.

In keeping with the season I thought I would print a star for our Christmas tree. It came out great, so I stuck it on a plastic rod so it could be secured to the tree. However as soon as my granddaughter saw it she immediately transformed it into a magic wand and it never did make it to the tree. The great thing about having a printer is that you can just print another one, so I modified it a bit and reprinted.

Both stars are printed with "clear" PLA and both designs have embedded light pipes in their design which are visible in the picture below, even though internal lighting has not been added yet.
