3D Printed Nativity Set: All the figures included, printed and then painted.

This is nearly a year old now, but by the time I finished it last year it was too late for anyone else to have a go, so rather than publish just after Christmas and have it forgotten I sat on it for nearly a year. I was looking for a small Christmas themed plastic model to put in home made crackers for family. In the end I came up with the idea of designing a minimalist nativity set which once everyone pulled their crackers could all be assembled. It all went down well with both my family and Katie's.

The model is a set of six figures:

To make the set the right size for each group of people, I just started with those six and then printed extras of the last 3 figures as needed.

I printed them all in clear PLA and then painted the models with Tamiya Model acrylic paint.

You can get the set from my Thingiverse page.
