Spatula - Kitchen Series
by ajolivette, published
I'm starting a series of 3D things, which are designed to replace what you would buy from the store. This is the kitchen series. First on the list, a large flat spatula. More to come.
This is the beginning of my series of things which are designed to replace things you would normally buy from the store. I'm on a mission to make 3D things everyone will want to print. For now, things that everyone needs, which will then become things everyone can't do without.
I'll start with this spatula. Designed to be printed and functional. I creaed it in two pieces, so it can fit in a build with a 10X10X12 foot print, which of course is what my printer can do, but it can be scaled of course to fit in yours too. I included a bolt and screw you can print, but you can of course use a real bolt and screw. Once the one I have printing now prints, in 8 hours, I'll know if it all works well together, and I'll post some nice pictues of that. For now, I'll include render.
Also, I would think you can also use glue on the bolt too.. right? No reason to take it apart once it's been put together.
I also added a second version, which you may prefer. I do. The first version, depending on how you print it, the handle meets the spatula flat portion at the point of the layer you print, so it can break at that point. I added some additional support on v2, which makes it stronger there, at least via my printer.
I'm currently using the Spatula in the house to cook with, so, it does function. It does have a lower melting point, but so do some of my other plastic cooking supplies.
