It’s been a tricky few years, but there have been plenty of opportunities for creativity. As people attempt to get back to normal, the Easter break is a good opportunity for many to do family stuff and reunite.
Think it’s too soon? Don’t worry. If you don’t want to head out this Easter and prefer to stay home and reduce the risk of illness, a Snapmaker 2.0 3-in-1 printer can help you have an Easter to remember.
But how can you make a 3D Printer a part of Easter?
Forget about 3D printing as a mechanical process intended to create cases and tools and replacement catches. Easter is a time of fun and imagination, so what better way to introduce 3D printing as a family pastime than creating your own Easter bunny?
Amazing STL files are available from the usual online resources for Easter bunnies big and small. Whether your family receives chocolates and sweets from an oversized bunny or a cuter, smaller woodland creature, fabricating the figure of folklore in a 3D Printer could make a great surprise for your family.
Or you could all gather around, choose the design, then watch as the Easter bunny takes shape!
Whether you’re avoiding chocolate for ethical or dietary reasons, the smart alternative is to rely on sweets hidden in eggs. Forget buying branded containers and opt instead to 3D print some hollow eggs.
These can then be filled with treats while your family sleeps. Alternatively, fabricate larger eggs in your 3D printer, suitable for use as baskets, and initiate an Easter egg hunt around your home.
Another option is to create some great personal accessories in the shape of bunny ears. These can either be wholly created in the printer, or else just a frame, with fabric ears glued on with time to dry before the big day.
Come on, you’ll look great!
With so many awesome 3D printing projects to choose from this year, the question must be: which 3D printer are you going to choose?
Several 3D printers from the Snapmaker range are available this Easter.
Snapmaker 2.0 AT models are 3-in-1 printers with large work areas, faster printing, noise reduction, and the ability to print, engrave and cut, and carve.
Three modules are provided, with a laser cutting module and a CNC carving module accompanying the expected 3D printing module.
A 5-inch touchscreen running Android lets you control the printer, and the pack includes 1Kg of PLA filament spool, two pieces of laser material, and one piece of CNC material.
Less versatile but more focused on 3D printing, the Snapmaker 2.0 F models are fast 3D printers with large work area, and quieter, faster printing.
Again controlled using a 5-inch Android touch interface, the Snapmaker 2.0 F printers are just as easy to assemble and feature a heated bed for easier removal of printed items.
Snapmaker 2.0F packs ship with 1Kg of PLA filament spool.
You probably already know that 3D printers have a lot of moving parts. Little fingers (and big!) can easily get stuck in them, which makes a 3D printer enclosure a smart idea. They also help to manage the noise and odor created by a 3D printer.
Enclosures are available for all Snapmaker 3D printers. If you’re taking advantage of the Snapmaker 2.0 offers this Easter, don’t forget an enclosure if you need one. Enclosures are available for A150, A350/F350/A350T, and A250T/F250/A250 models.
Some special offers are available across the Snapmaker range this Easter.
You can get the Snapmaker Original for just $439 if you’re completely new to 3D printer. If you’re ready for the Snapmaker 2.0 series, however, the Snapmaker A350 is $1499, while the Snapmaker A250 is $1099 (and the bundle with rotary module is $1399). If you want the Snapmaker A150, this is $899.
Some discounts have been introduced. A Snapmaker AT is 15% OFF, the Snapmaker F250/F350 is 15% off, and any Snapmaker accessories and add-ons are also 15% off.
And if you act fast on April 11th 2022, you can grab further discounts from the Snapmaker store.
Between 5pm and 8pm PDT, 20 Snapmaker A350s will be discounted by an extra $100 (20 pieces in the US and EU store). The EU store will have another discount on April 12 between 10am and 1pm CEST. 20 pieces will get a $200 discount.
If you’re looking for a Snapmaker A250, this will be discounted by a further $100 (50 pieces in each of the US, UK, and EU stores).
A similar deal is available for the Snapmaker A150, which gets $100 discount in the Flash Sale, with 50 pieces available in the UK and EU stores.
Like Christmas, Easter comes once a year. Chocolate aside, there’s no reason not to gift yourself something that could revolutionize Easter and every other holiday event of the year.
3D print your Easter bunny, make some cookie cutters in the shape of rabbit ears, print some hollow eggs to hide sweets inside, wear 3D printed bunny ears, create Easter-themed place settings for the Easter feast. There is so much that you 3D print to keep the family entertained and safe at home this Easter.
