Also, an OpenSCAD script to generate a cookie cutter from an SVG file.

When you say gaps I assume you mean that the cutter blade is two verticals with a gap between that cookie dough gets stuck in.
This has always been a problem for me on my Thing-o-matic. It is a hardware adjustment problem and I still haven't been able to fix it (something to do with an overconstrained X axis). It is related to the inability to print a circle. This thread may be relevant to you: http://support.makerbot.com/en...
You could also try adjusting the thickness of the blade to one line width. The cutter will be very flimsy.
I have a rep 2 and can't seem to fix the gaps I keep getting in my cookie cutters! I've tried changing all sorts of variables (number of shells,wallThick, cutterMinimum, the svg file line thickness, etc), but have not made much progress in remedying the issue. Any suggestions?

Next head to thehungryhousewife.com/2009/10/sugar-cookie-and-icing-tips.html or similar for a recipe. An hour later you'll have nice fresh pi cookies.
If you want to create your own cookie cutter replace the pi.SVG file with your own image.
Open that image in inkscape (or your favourite SVG editor)
Massage it into a workable DXF (look at repraprip.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/inkscape-to-openscad-dxf-tutorial.html for instructions)
Then load CookieCutter.SCAD with OpenSCAD
Let it render. This will take a while (up to half an hour)
