Featured Thing!

Description

UPDATE: I made a new version of the Cookie-Cutter-Editor http://www.local-guru.net/blog/pages/cookiecutter-editor

Recently some very awsome cookiecutter-designs started to show up on thingiverse (like the escher cookie cutter ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3207 ) or the jigsaw cookie cutter ( http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3267 ), and many more) (and one of the local radiostations has played "last cristmas", because it's only 6 months till x-mas O_o )

So i thought about how the generation of such custom cookie cutters could be simplified and i developed a custom cookie cutter generator in processing.

Hi I use it on my rep 1 it works perfect but when I do it on replicator 2 it don't work why is that
I've downloaded the Windows version of the Cookie-Cutter-Editor but it's displaying a blank screen rather than the the default configuration of nodes and lines. Am I doing something wrong? Was looking forward to playing around with this so I'd love to know :)

<p>Hi I use it on my rep 1 it works perfect but when I do it on replicator 2 it don't work why is that<br></p>

<p>This is awesome! Compared to how I was making cookie cutters before this is so easy. Thanks for making this and making it available! Smile</p>

<p>is there any way to smooth out the base layer? i was trying to make some lightning bolts last night and the base (thick layer) had some gaps in it and didnt print so well.</p>

<p>Do you have any way to alter the thickness of the wall of the cookie cutter? Most of the cookie cutters I have downloaded from thingiverse end up having walls two extrusions thick, with a gap between them (and these get clogged with dough). If there was a wall-thickness option, I could set it to exactly two filament widths so that the two laps of the perimeter touch.</p>

<p>this one generates the cutter with one wall thickness it seems. (at least with my skeinforge settings and .35 nozzle) they are surprisingly pretty strong.</p>

<p>Can I just say that this is really cool? Great job!</p>

<p>I used this tool to create these two cookie cutters: </p>

<p>By the way, this awesome processing sketchbook requires the UnlekkerLib0, which I found here: http://codeandform.googlecode.com/files/unlekkerLib0003c.zip&lt;/p&gt;

<p>I was able to edit the Processing patch to bump up the nodes from 20 to 50 so that I could achieve more natural "curvey" lines. Another really awesome hack of this patch would be to allow for the inserting of an image to then trace over -- I didn't need it because I was tracing by eye, but some fo<br>lks might prefer this. </p>

<p>Really helpful tool!</p>

<p>I like the idea but how do you run the unzipped cookiecutter.pde file? On my XP system clicking on the file returns a message saying 'windows can not open this file'. Letting windows search for the extent returns the message 'unknown'. Google search returns links for Processing Development Environment - PDE but does not say what to run it with.</p>

<p>download processing from http://www.processing.org/ open the pde file and klick on the little "play" button in the toolbar</p>

<p>Thanks - I will give it a try.</p>
