A Tradition of 3D Printed Holiday Ornaments

This week’s blog is by Julie Reece, Z Corporation’s Director of Marketing Communications.

Last week Z Corporation hosted its annual employee holiday party. It’s always a great event, filled with the generous spirit of giving, good food, laughter, and the camaraderie of wonderful colleagues.

One of our holiday party traditions is a Z Corp. 3D printed ornament that every employee receives at the party. The ornament is always a tightly kept secret until its much anticipated unveiling during the party. David Russell is one of our most senior engineers and for many years he has volunteered to design and print these ornaments for every employee.

You’ll find below a chronology of Z Corp.’s ornaments. It is interesting to observe that, over time, color was introduced and features became smaller and more delicate to correspond with enhancements in both the hardware and materials technologies.
