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 a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

I was an editor for the first 40 volumes of MAKE. The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. Covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made.

    I started working on an OpenSCAD script to make my own snowflake-like designs: http://rasterweb.net/raster/2012/11/27/snowflakey/
