We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
The kids wanted snow cones for dessert tonight, and we were horrified to discover that we were missing a critical part (the "Locking Cap") that attached the handle to the grater. So I pulled out the calipers, turned to OpenSCAD, designed a quick replacement. Tomorrow I will be Superman in their eyes. :)
This prints in two parts. You turn the knob that extends through the middle to lock it into place.
Original machine instructions: http://www.hasbro.com/common/instruct/SnoopySnoConeMachine.pdf
Update 8/4/12: Includes a 3mm hole on the handle. Stick a piece of filament through it to help keep the parts together securely and make it easier to turn.
2) Assemble as shown in photos.
3) Make sno-cones again without having to buy a new machine.
4) Hug smiling kids and ask them to remind Mommy what a great investment the 3D printer was.
