For those who complain about size (width) of the orifice, print the tube squeezer in TPU Mid flex 30%infill and the problem are gone. Will update with some pictures

Thomy 250ml mustard (for example) needs 70 mm width. So scale the model (only x) by 1.213.

Waste of material! / Found out after printing.
Design not calculated for toothpaste! - Wrong measurement
This one I find best and simple:

Yours is nicer, but useless :(

Paste Pusher Animals

LOL it looks like the rock climbing things you grab onto

Here is my print . 2 parts at 70% with PLA , Description is in the info of the videoclip .


I just finished printing it out of ABS. I must say it seems a little overly robust - I think I now have a toothpaste squeezer which will survive the apocalypse.

I love it. I must admit I found it a little wide too. I'm going to be using some ABS glue to tighten up the opening

Print it in pink, and well, you know, it looks a lot lime something else that can squeeze a tube.

I would like to BUY this object. Can you print one for me and send it Italy?

All the best,

You can sell this thing. Nice design.

Great simple design. Could use smaller opening thickness or some type of adjustment though as it doesn't compress nearly enough of the paste out of my tube of toothpaste.

This. The opening needs to be about 50% thingger, but I like the look of the thing.

Could try pulling the bottom of the tube through at an angle to flatten it against one edge of the squeezer

I appreciate the feedback. It was really modeled with the makerbot resolution in mind, as well as leaving a little room for thermal effects. The slot is extra wide to allow for scaling to the desired compressed tube thickness. The last thing I would want is for people to print out an object that is too tight.

I made one last night and I love it!

take a picture!

:-D This absolutely rocks!! I'm trying this!

Yes, that button should exist. Including a live stream of the printing in progress!
I'm currently using Bambuser for that:

There should be a 'I am making this right now' button on the right ;-)

é voila!

Oh! This is great. Simple and clean design follows function.
