GE Mini Tree Mounting System

$34.95$37.95

3D Printed mounting system for the Gilbert Engineering series of Mini Trees Rev2. This mounting system utilizes a lower and upper center hub and 4 lower outside mounts (5 on the small size) that attach with zip ties to the mini tree. 1/2″ EMT conduit is used to join all the printed parts to create an internal skeleton that securely supports the mini tree. To install the tree, simply insert 1/2″ rebar into the ground and slide the EMT center of the mini tree over the rebar. Each Mini Tree Mounting System will include one bottom hub, one top hub, 4 bottom outside mounts (5 on the small size), and one star mount designed to fit the Star 12 single or double layer star. One alignment jig will be provided per order regardless of quantity purchased. The mini tree mounts will be black with white star mounts front and back. If you have a specific color request for white or black please include a note indicating your preference with your order, but keep in mind that it may increase processing time for in-stock items. Includes 3D printed parts only. Important Note: The Rev2 mini trees were released around March 2021 and the size differences in the trees makes the original and Rev 2 series of mounts incompatible with each other. Furthermore on the Rev2 trees the small size changed from a 33″ tall tree to a 19″ tall tree around October / November 2021. If you have the original version of the trees, the former Rev2 33″ small size or any question as to which version you have, please contact us prior to ordering.

3D printing parts is a slow process and we have a whole print farm running 24/7 to fulfill orders and build stock of the more popular items. If you order a product on backorder we will move it directly to the print queue where it will be printed as soon as possible. While normal processing times for most orders with backordered items is less than a week, it can fluctuate from time to time around 1-2 weeks. Very large orders can also experience longer than normal processing times as well. If processing times are expected to be longer than two weeks before shipping, there will be a banner at the top of the website indicating the expected wait times. Additionally very large orders could have longer delays due to the vast number of printer hours required for production of the parts. We will contact you and let you know the expected production time if it were to exceed the estimated timeline for very large orders. See the FAQ page for more info.

All of our 3D printed parts use PETG filament which provides good flexibility and resistance to UV exposure when used seasonally.
