This is my entry to the Sindoh Christmas Decorations Spare Parts - Design Challenge. In keeping with the theme I've created spare parts to repair Christmas ornaments.
We've all been there. Ornaments that have a lost cap and/or hanger (I don't know what else to call these) or perhaps the cap has been crushed, so you are left with no way to hang the ornament on the tree. In the past you might either take the cap and hanger off a less loved ornament tossing it instead or you tossed your beloved ornament in the trash with great disappointment.
Well good news now you can print a replacement cap and hanger to replace the lost or crushed ones saving your beloved ornaments. In the past we've lost on average 2-3 ornaments to our cats having their way with the tree. Hey it's their fun time too! The caps get lost in the tree or carpet, sucked up by the vacuum, stepped on, etc.
The print is very simple, requires no supports, but your printer should be set to print at its finest detail settings. You may need added bed adhesion as the parts are small.
