Holiday Ornament – First Draft

With Christmas fast approaching, I decided to start designing our family ornament for the year. I wanted it to be simple, but interesting, and identifiably us. I settled on a fairly simple shape with each of our first initials beveled into a cube.

At full scale this was a long print, and the supports were a nightmare. Printing letters vertically makes for a really messy surface on all the sides. I need to find a cleaner way to print these.
