With the up coming 2020 Sydney mini I have put my name down to talk. Now am looking for ideas and pictures on what you can print with a 3d printer for christmas. eg snowflakes and 12 pointed stars

Plus also the pixel controller board brackets and mounts, enclosure vents etc shared on Thingiverse, so probably more hardware related 3D printed items than actual props it seems

I have printed tons of boxes of various sizes to hold buck converters, connectors etc. The one I use the most is a box just a bit bigger than a 6 bar barrier strip. I use it to connect DC wires from a PSU to the props. Velcro it to the back of the prop and I have a water resistant connection. I have also printed a bunch of hangers that drop into the top of a rain gutter and support a 3/4" PVC pipe hanging in front of the gutter. Works great in high winds. Requires no tools to install and makes my hanging props easy to put up / take down. Printed spacers for my tomato cage matrix to hold my WS2812 strips at an even distance (33mm) giving the matrix a more uniform look. 10 strip tree toppers for my mini and mid trees.
