Aussie Christmas 2023

Welcome to “Aussie Christmas,” a celebration of the festive season with a uniquely Australian twist. This year, I’m stoked to share with you a growing collection of models that capture the whimsical and warm spirit of an Australian Christmas.

Melting Snowman: A Sunny Holiday Tales

First up, meet our Melting Snowman. In the Aussie summer heat, the traditional snowman takes on a new form – one that’s more puddle than person! This cheeky character embodies the playful nature of an Aussie Christmas, reminding us of the sunny and bright holiday spirit down under.

Joey’s Worldly Adventure

The star of our collection is Joey, a baby kangaroo with a curious streak. Imagine Joey’s surprise when he stumbled upon Santa’s bag, mistaking it for a cozy pouch. Unlike his usual bouncy bed, this ‘pouch’ was filled with gifts and stationary – the perfect spot for a nap. But little did Joey know, his nap would turn into a magical journey across the globe on Santa’s sleigh!

Join Joey’s Journey

Now, it’s your turn to take part in Joey’s adventure. Download the model of Joey from Thangs.com and let him join your holiday celebrations. We’re excited to see how far Joey can travel – snap a photo of Joey in your part of the world and share it with us! Let’s track the global journey of this adorable Aussie traveller. Share your photos and tell us where Joey has landed.

Aussie Christmas” is about capturing the essence of the holidays with a fun, Australian flair. From melting snowmen to kangaroos in Santa’s bag, each model is crafted to bring joy and a smile to your festive season. So, let’s celebrate the holidays the Aussie way!

Otterly Adorable Family

Otterly Adorable Family

Discover the magic of 3D printing with the enchanting tale of the Otter Family. Crafted with love, precision, and a healthy dose of patience, this SparkyFace5 original creation embodies the beauty of family connection, the strength in togetherness, and the joy of playful moments.

Originally intended as a simple model for my husband who missed seeing his favourite animal at the zoo, this project took on a life of its own. The plan to create a single otter became a journey of self-discovery, frustration, stress, and ultimately, transformation. After five challenging iterations, a family of otters, just like our own, was born. Each otter is designed to convey a unique emotion, capturing the essence of the bond we share as a family.

Designed to print without supports, the Otter Family is a versatile, approachable project for 3D printing enthusiasts of all skill levels. It’s a model that encourages personal interpretation, creativity, and a deeper connection with the art of 3D printing.

Whether you’re new to the world of 3D printing or a seasoned professional, the Otter Family offers an immersive, rewarding, and most importantly, fun 3D printing experience.

Join me in this otterly adorable journey and let’s bring these playful creatures to life in your own home. May they bring as much joy to your space as they have to mine! click an image below

Skeleton Rubber Duck

Skeleton Rubber Duck

A Quirky Spin on ‘Duck Duck Jeep

 

The Spark:
Sculptober 2022 brought an unexpected and delightful challenge my way. Amidst the creative fervour, a supporter with a decked-out Jeep Wrangler for Halloween had a special vision: a skeleton, not clutching just any item, but a rubber duck. Yet, this was no ordinary duck; it was to be a skeleton rubber duck, a playful nod to the beloved ‘Duck Duck Jeep’ trend captivating Jeep enthusiasts everywhere.

 

The Challenge:
The idea was quirky, fun, and utterly unique, but there was a hitch – no such model existed for 3D printing. That’s where the magic of community collaboration came into play. Embracing the spirit of ‘Duck Duck Jeep’ and the joy of creation, we teamed up to bring this whimsical concept to life.

 

From Vision to Reality:
The journey was as exciting as the idea itself. We delved into design, envisaging a rubber duck with a skeletal twist. The result? A charming, slightly eerie, and entirely enchanting skeletal rubber duck. But we didn’t stop there. Believing in the power of shared creativity, we released our quirky friend into the wild, making the model accessible to all now on thangs.com

 

Community Embrace:
The response was nothing short of heart-warming. Our skeletal duck struck a chord, waddling its way into the hearts of many. Celebrating over 850 downloads, it became a testament to shared imagination and the wonderful unpredictability of creative endeavours.

 

Reflections and Invitations:
This project underscored a valuable insight: personal projects, born from individual visions or suggestions, can resonate on a universal scale. It’s a reminder that in this creative space, we’re never truly alone. Our ideas, no matter how quirky, find home in the hearts of others.

 

To all reading this, consider it an open invitation. If you have a vision, a suggestion, or a creative itch, reach out. Let’s collaborate, laugh, and continue to populate the world with delightful models, one quirky idea at a time.
