Materials & Process
Layer by layer this tree topper is 3D printed using PLA (polylactic acid) which is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch. It takes about 8 hours to print each topper.
The 3D printing process is not perfect so there may be blemishes in the surface finishes and visible layer lines. Items will not be exactly as pictured and as much as we try to take colour accurate photos, the colour may be slightly different than viewed on your screen.
