This was my first thing, a spatula, which is intended to help scrape objects from the print platform.


Might want to use a "helper disk" on the handle end to help secure to the printing platform, since the bottom is curved. (Be sure to print flat side down, not ramped side down, for better results.)

The file "spatula3.stl" has a slightly thicker base to help support the "blade".

Printed this today (spatula 3). I scaled it up a little and used supports and raft and the handle came out just fine. Also it works a million times better than the cheap putty knife I bought for this purpose. Thanks.

I made spatula3 and also had issues with the handle. Otherwise nice spatula

Wait. If im making this scrapper to take things off how do i take this off????? JK

Thanks. I made one of the spatula 2 and one of the spatula 3. I made the spatula 3 a little bigger. The 3 works very well, but I haven't been able to get a clean print of that handle. Function over form is more important here, so thanks again.
