This project takes a dancing solar powered Frosty (dollar store variety) and seals him in a 3d printed ornament cage.
Print this at 30% fill with no raft or supports.
When the print is 84% complete, stop the printer by requesting a filament change (this is what I choose on a Makerbot Replicator 2), so that the print head moves away from the printed object. Squeeze Frosty into the cage (the bars will need to bend a bit--but they're not steel).
Resume printing. When done, Frosty will be sealed inside his cage, like this:
His little arms bind against the bars--not to worry.
lift up the back of his base using some velcro, tape, clay or tacky substance (to lift and hold Frosty in place).
Add an ornament hook and place Frosty on a tree where he will receive a good bit of light--if you put him in the sun, he'll have some fun.
