Besides Darth Vader heads, a 3D printer can make actually useful stuff. Like this citrus press.

So it's not a nice-looking designer piece of cookware. And it isn't endorsed by Jamie Oliver. But you made it yourself, on your own 3D printer. And that's worth something, isn't it?


Just print out the two parts (the overhangs should be fine, the worst part is the tip which has a 40 degree overhang) and you should have yourself a working citrus press.

Great idea, sadly, there is a flaw in this. By having something 3d printed that is in contact with liquids, especially fruit juices, mold developes. It cannot be washed out from a washing machine, nor scrubbed, due to the small indents between each layer of any 3d printed object.
As I said before, great work, but this is a health hazard.

What scaling factor do you think is necessary for oranges? 130-150%?

+1 for useful stuff on Thingiverse!
