Smily Cookie cutter and stamp, With Improved Script!
by mrbenbritton, published
A boring old circle cookie cutter made FUN with a smily stamp!
This includes the openscad script used to create it, so you too can make cool cookie cutters :-)
Thank you profezzorn for showing me how to handle layers in a dxf file! http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:29247
I have tweaked the script so that the stamp now fits into the cutter and the bits that you draw turn up as raised lumps in the cookie.
To make a smily cookie, download the STL and print both parts.
Next make a batch of cookie dough. this site has a great recipe: thehungryhousewife.com/2009/10/sugar-cookie-and-icing-tips.html . Roll thin, cut out the circle, before removing the cutter push the smily stamp firmly onto the cookie. Bake and eat!
If you want to create your own cookie cutter you will need:
An image editor that can export to DXF (I use inkscape)
First edit the SVG file to make your own image.
The CC layer will be transformed into the Cookie Cutter.
The Stamp layer will be transformed into the stamp. Any filled regions will appear as raised bumps on your cookies.
Massage both layers into a workable form and save as a DXF (look at repraprip.blogspot.co.nz/2011/05/inkscape-to-openscad-dxf-tutorial.html for instructions)
You will need to edit the CookieCutter2.scad file. The OpenSCAD script has two important routines, cookiecutter() and stamp(). You need to run each of these separately, commenting out the one you don't need.
Once you have generated The cutter and stamp, print them, take photos and post them up on Thingiverse!
