Just in time for Christmas! Festive Dr Who themed Cookie Cutters. The Tardis and Dalek.

These cookie cutters come in two parts, one to make the impression in the dough, while the second one cuts the outline.

17 December 2011 - The Dalek stamp has been updated - provides more definition for it's "Arm" / "Weapon" - you know... those things it waves about from time to time! - EXTERMINATE!

The stamps need to be deeper, hardly makes any marks in the cookies after baking.

Can I get some clarification about fixing this with NetFabb? RepG, tons of red error text, boils down to "complex division by zero" error. Something about holes? I downloaded NetFabb Basic (only because it was mentioned here) and I'm not sure what to do with it.
When I export the part as an STL file, I'm given the option to fix it but that makes no difference to the errors in RepG.

I had major problems slicing the Tardis stamp in RepG. It had a some holes in the model. Closed them up in NetFabb without a problem.

These are awesome, thanks for sharing.

OK, noted and I'll order the ceramic.  (Although I e-mailed Shapeways directly, they have not replied).  Thanks!

Any advice on which material to use?  I am hoping to order a set from Shapeways and options are:  Fine Detail Plastic or Frosted Detail Plastic.  I want to confirm that the material is food safe and will produce a good product.  Thanks!  I'm so looking forward to getting these as a gift for my 11 YO daughter - a big Dr. Who fan.  

Hi Colleen,
Did you ever get these fabbed? If so, any tips? I'm having a look at having Shapeways do it in Ceramic as well. If I'll be happy with the result the cost for a foodsafe material is worthwhile - otherwise I'll probably use the MakerBot at work for free and just wrap it in aluminum foil when I use it.


I FINALLY relented and ordered a set, plastic, from Etsy. I really tried to solve the food safe question, but there were doubts (see response from LeadCarbonate, below) about all of the materials.

I made the cookies and they looked just like DG Wilson's; and my daughter, the Dr. Who Super Fan, liked them. Success.

For Christmas, I'm using the cookie cutters to make Cinnamon Ornaments. I think the impression will be better defined because the ornaments aren't baked.

My vote is to use the printer at work, for free.


I believe that only the ceramic material is food safe on Shapeways.  Also, keep in mind that even some materials that are generally considered food safe (PLA, for example) aren't being processed in a food safe way.  Brass extruder heads may contain lead, for example.

You have combined my two favorite things: Doctor Who AND 3D printing!! I'm printing these Monday morning on my SLS!

Add to your favorites with Baking... icing... and eating! :)

You might be able to find someone in your area to print these for you. Try looking for a hackerspace or makerspace in your area with a google search, email them about 3D printing, then take the .STL files along to one of their meetings and get them to show you the magic. If you're in the Santa Barbara area, I'd be happy to print you up a set.

Hi, johngomm, sorry to botter you
 I loved these cookie cutters, and I'm trying to find a place to print them, and I have not being abble to find. I live in Berkeley, would you know where I could print them?
Thank you

I represent a small 3D-printing start-up. We would be happy to print out anything you would want printed! http://www.facebook.com/InPrintingInventInspire?ref=hlhttp://www.facebook.com/InPrin...

The embossing stamps make these so much more fun than other cookie cutters. I know several Whoovians who will be thrilled when I give them their sets!

I did have some trouble with the TARDIS stamp. The desktop version of netfabb displayed it in dark red, instead of green, which signifies that the volume is negative. It couldn't fix it (or I couldn't work out how), but the cloud version of netfabb fixed it automatically. The result printed well o
n my MakerGear Mendel Prusa after slicing with Slic3r.

My photo doesn't do justice to the modelling, as it is hard to light and photograph clear PLA to show surface texture rather than the translucent shininess of the clear strands.

Great work, DGWilson

Brilliant! I would like to print this out on one of the on-line printing services to give as a gift - I assume the Creative Commons License allows me to do this ... Can anyone suggest a material from which to create? Stainless is too expensive - ~$65 USD. I was able to fix a couple of holes in the mesh in order to be able to upload to a couple of the sites ... just cannot find the right material.

BenRockHold, Thanks! I spent a lot of time on makerbot's web site and was thrilled to discover that their offices are in my neighborhood (after I clued in to what a 3D printer was). I'm amazed, to say the least. Makerbot offers educational events, open houses, etc. so I hope to see a Thing a Matic in action and learn more. In the meantime, I'll look for a way to print these Dr. Who cookie cutters in time for Christmas.

Brilliant dgwilson! I was just wondering what would be a good treat for my family on Christmas day and it so happens they are massive dr who fans :D

Thank you very much and have a wonderful christmas!


These cookie cutters are 'printed' on a 3D printer -- a machine that can construct physical objects from a raw material. To build these, one would download the STLs, load them into their printer software, and pass the job to their 3D printer.

Love these, but unclear how to make the cookie cutters (I stumbled onto this site from NPR's holiday windows - The New Museum windows featuring aliens - which led to Thingiverse...yeah, just like a Dr. Who episode). Additional instructions, please.
