Since these Paste Pushers are meant to be printed fast and furious and be given out as hand outs to show what useful things you can make with a 3D printer. So they are designed flat and without any supports.

On an UM we printed these in 18 minutes each in PLA at these settings:
Speed | 80mm/s
Fill | 20%
Wall | 0.4 mm
Layer | 0.2mm
(The UM has a bit to suffer from stringing unfortunately..)
Let us know if you can print them better and faster!

Let's Push some Paste!!!!

When I slice this, I don't get any bottom layers to connect the eyes with the pusher. Slic3r .99 Anyone have any thoughts?

Use a different Slicer? :)

Could you upload the SCAD file? I'd love to see some other animals as derivatives.

Would love to!
But the models are made with Solidworks..

Great idea... kids love it!

We're all kids at heart, right?!

LiquidBeef on Feb 17, 2013 said:

Wow, I love it! So cute. I like the way the traditional toothpaste keys roll up the "slack" to save counter space, though, so I wonder if that could be incorporated into another monster's rolled up tongue or something somehow.

makeplace on Feb 17, 2013 said:

Good suggestion!
We'll think about that one!

dutchmogul on Feb 11, 2013 said:

Haha, excellent! This is a good idea....

Thanks Mr DutchMogul.
I am sure that you can come up with some fancy versions that are more visually appealing but they prob don't print as fast! :)
