This design is for a parametric modular rolling cookie cutter device. With this, and a little preparation work, you can make a rolling cookie cutter out of just about any 2d sketch! The size of the cookie cutter, drum diameter and number of cutters are all configurable, among other things. All you need to do is make a DXF file from your drawing, use a profile SCAD file to tweak the position, size etc. and render.
This design is completely original. All examples except for the Circles and Squares which use OpenSCAD primitive shapes were hand drawn and scanned by my artist friend Valerie! Unfortunately I have not been able to create a physical copy of this yet as my 3d printer hasn't arrived yet but I hope to be able to do so soon.
This design can also be used as an example of wrapping a flat object around a cylinder. See the hSlice module for how that works.
This is my entry into the ProtoParadigm Winter Wonderland Contest. Check out their site at www.protoparadigm.com -- I ordered my initial filament from their and their customer service is great!
The STL files are ready to slice and print -- just pick the one you want! You should print at least one set of handles which will allow for a better grip and prevent the central shaft from moving out of the drum. If you wish to permanently affix the handles to the shaft, it may be beneficial to fit a PTFE washer between the handle and drum to prevent friction and abrasive wear on the parts.
For those who want to make their own original cookie cutter designs, you can do the following:
** Printing with support is almost certainly required for most consumer-level 3d printers. You will need to trim away the support before use.
