Matters of Grey shared 19 Stars Wars snowflakes patterns a couple of years ago, and even though they’re not new, it doesn’t make them any less stellar. Several of the designs look ripe for 3D printing. Now the real question is: who’s down to post CAD files for them on Thingiverse? Looks like the Vadar flake and the Stormtrooper flake are already up (thanks Nachimir and IHeartRobotics)! I’m having visions of a Christmas tree covered in Star Wars snowflake ornaments. May the flake be with you!

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    Looks more like a lasser cutting job to me
