Everyone knows that timeless holiday film, A Christmas Story. Even if you haven’t seen it, you’ve probably heard of the basic premise, where a young boy hopes to receive a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas. One of the most memorable objects from that film, though, is the leg lamp — it combines a prosthetic of a woman’s leg with a lampshade, taking you right back to the 1940s.

Relive A Christmas Story Using Your 3D Printer

If you’ve joined the growing club of 3D printer owners, this year you can create the film’s iconic leg lamp in the form of a small Christmas ornament. For those who would like more traditional decorations on their tree, there are those possibilities with a 3D printer as well. For example, you’ll find a set of five colored bulbs that use high-resolution mapping, which gives the material a shiny reflection just like the ones you’d find in a store. Our advice: watch A Christmas Story already, check out the ten picks for holiday designs, and then choose your favorite.
