Another feeble box of Lucky Charms cereal? No problem, create that most excellent bowl with charms in every bite with this Charms Sifter. The holes are sized to catch most charms, you should be able to sift > 90% of them.

Please note: Diabetic supplies not included.


I've printed this on a TOM with a heated build platform, it just fits since I positioned the handle toward a corner. My print-o-matic setting are: no raft, object infill 35, layer height .32, number of shells 2 and feedrate 32.

TO USE: dump some Lucky Charms cereal in the sifter, shake side to side, dump out mostly charms then clear out any plugged holes, repeat. Be careful to hide the sifter because it may anger others.

Please note: Diabetic supplies not included.

i love this, i wish i had a 3d printer. i have spent so much time picking marshmallows to increase the marshmallow/cereal ratio.

WHERE DO I BUY THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I've had this question before and the problem is that it takes 2.5 hours to print one. I've printed a few for family and I've got one extra, I'll sell it for $15us + shipping.

My daughter's derivative is save the marshmallows for your hot chocolate!

wouldn't it be great that one day our home 3D printers would be made as a set with plastic recycling so that we just need to dump our plastic mineral water bottles in there and make something cool with it??

I agree! It's something I think about a lot, especially after making a part that doesn't work out. I've got a box devoted to failed ideas that someday I hope to recycle. There are several people working on this, if you do a search like "RepRap recycle" you'll find some information on it.

Hi Tom - Nick Bilton here from The New York Times. I'm writing a story about 3-D printers and mentioning your sifter in the piece (Bre Pettis give me some info on it.) Reach out if you want to discuss, but just wanted to give you a heads up: bilton@nytimes dot com


Saw your article on Times of India doing research on open hardware vs patents. Found my way here.

I can provide these at $15 usd per. Please contact me at http://www.metrorp.comwww.metrorp.com and [email protected]

Sweet! now all us British folk needs is to be able to buy lucky charms again without the rediculas price tag for imported goods!
£7 a box... OMG!

28 bucks is a little steep, but considering it takes about 3 1/2 hours to print on my MakerBot...

Isn't this the way open hardware is supposed to work?

(P.S., I"d go for the glazed ceramic at $75)

According to my CAD software, each hole is 11 meters across. A bit big to put into my makerbot.

You need to change the units from meters to millimeters. If you're using solidworks you'll find it in import options -
gt; STL/VRML -
gt; Units

You MUST bring this into the stores! You must! It is your duty to provide us all with the tool that we've wanted without even realizing that we DID want - actually, NEED - it.

Please please please is it possible to purchase this? I need to get this for my dad

Well, as I type this, I'm watching them discuss your sifter on "Red Eye" on Fox News Channel. Nice job!!!!

i sorted a box by hand for my gf!!!!

Looks like the show "Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld" on Fox news channel is doing a story on this. This will be a good boost to the MakerBot / Thingiverse community.

I've uploaded a promo video...


Nice! I'm happy to see that you can print one on an ABP. I moved from the ABP recently because I wanted to do larger and taller prints.

I had to rotate and move the model to get it to build on the ABP. I also had to turn off outline. Check out my variation above!

Don't worry guys, I got this

You sir are a fat kids dream! Amazing idea 8-)
