How It’s Made
This ornament includes a 3D printed arch and snowflakes, plus up-cycled snow.
3D printing is a process for forming physical objects from a computer generated model. R+D prints right here in Sunnyside, NY. The material we use is PLA or polylactic acid. PLA is a biodegradable and bioactive polyester that derives from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, or sugarcane.
The snow is made from remnants of machining foam to be used in lost foam metal casting. Typically it would be discarded, but we saved it for its shimmery, icy look so that it could be recycled.
