The Plaza in New York City has a well-earned reputation for playing host to famous visitors, from The Beatles to literary favorite Eloise, the six-year-old heroine of Kay Thompson’s beloved children’s novels. Now, you can add a MakerBot-made Christmas Tree topper to the roster of famed Plaza guests. A 3D Printed Tree Topper On Monday night, The Plaza unveiled their annual Christmas tree. This year, the striking evergreen in the lobby is crowned with a gleaming twenty-four-inch snowflake printed on a MakerBot® Replicator® 2 Desktop 3D Printer in MakerBot® True White PLA Filament. The tree topper is just one of the artfully crafted snowflake designs curated by Saks Fifth Avenue for their own flagship Manhattan store and the lobby display at The Plaza. Award Winning Graphic Artist Goes 3D Saks tapped award-winning graphic artist and longtime creative collaborator Marian Bantjes to create unique snowflake ornaments for the holiday season. Bantjes brought her signature style to the ornate, hand-drawn snowflake designs. For our collaboration with Saks, the MakerBot Design Team reinterpreted a selection of her designs as 3D printable models. More 3D Printed Snowflakes at Saks On the lookout for more snowflakes?
