We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
Amazed at the nifty math of the Parametric Measuring Cup that allows me to make cups of any size I like, I added text labels so that I can see the size of each cup.
And now it's Customizable, making it even easier for you to make exactly the measuring cup of your heart's desire. Or at least, exactly the amount of coffee for your perfect cup of coffee. Or the volume of your brain, etc.
Note: the measuring cup is flipped upside down so that you can see the text in Customizer. Flip it over so that the bottom of the cup is on the print bed to print.
** Now with super built-plate preview goodness!
Set one of the units (cups, tablespoons, teaspoons, mL) and leave the others at zero.
Set the label as you like.
Set the text scaling so your label looks good. 0.3 is small, 1.0 is big.
Set the wall thickness. 1mm is fine for measuring, 5mm if you like a chunky feel.
Set the text depth, if you like the dramatic look. Default should be fine.
