Santa’s New Sleigh

Buy Santa’s New Sleigh ($1.99).

WINNER FIRST PLACE – Trinpy 2015 Christmas Design Competition.

Some of my fondest memories revolve around the building of plastic models, always received in ample supply as Christmas gifts as a kid. I hope this model brings the same joy of the holidays to you and your family. I really enjoyed working on this project and I hope you have a great Christmas. Happy Holidays!

Organized into build plates by color, so you can build this model without painting. Requires little support and clean up. There are assembly tabs and guides on most parts, making it a fun and easy build. Once printed, everything goes together fast with super glue.

You’ll build this model just like the elves did in Santa’s shop, starting with the frame rails and working your way up. You’ll build and install a detailed V8 engine, powertrain components, front end, ski, sleigh, stand, and Jolly ol’ Saint Nick himself. The whole kit contains over 80 detailed parts. Everything is modeled right down to the bolts on the engine parts, to Santa’s eyebrows. All of the parts were designed from scratch for successful 3d printing and ease of assembly.

Includes tested S3D factory files for each build plate, optimized, tested and proven to produce beautiful results on typical home 3D printers.


I developed and tested the project using S3D and have provided the factory files containing all of the settings and support you need for a successful print in ABS. You will have to adjust the settings for PLA, PET, and so on. The plates are designed to print in a few hours each, on average.

For other slicers, I’ve provided stl files for each build plate. You’ll need to add support as needed. Please see the parts list for guidance.
