It is the year 2013 - Santa Claus and his elves are still the leaders of Christmas gift-giving market. They say that they “make gifts in the North Pole”. Therefore, most of the world companies probably have factories there. It is time to change the balance in the gift making market and put Santa into the 2nd place.
The only way to do it is to use the alternative manufacturing - 3D printing. The future is near, dear designers. You better turn on your 3D modeling software. You are essential part of 3D printing models revolution and it is a substantial platform for you. Together we can make history.
Design a 3D printable model of a gift or decoration for Christmas e.g. christmas tree 3d model and take those prizes home. Be creative - we must overcome the army of the North Pole. Christmas is coming soon - be prepared.
