These are a set of cookie cutters that can be used to create 3D sugar cookies that assemble together. There are cutters for a tree, a star, a reindeer, a sleigh, and a snowflake. Check out the instructions for how to make these awesome cookies. Definitely a great way to have fun with kids over the holidays. Enjoy!


So in order to actually assemble these cookies, you need to select the right recipe. You need cookies that will maintain their shape when baking and that won't rise too much. I used this one and it worked out pretty well.


I printed my cutters with .25 infill and .3 layer height, but it should work just fine at whatever resolution you want to use.

When making the cookies roll the dough out to a little under .25 inches thick. I measured mine with my calipers to about .22 inches for most of them. When you assemble the cookies, you might want to cut the slots with a serrated knife like a steak knife or a paring knife to open then up a little bit. Just kind of shave down the edges so that the cookies fit together nicely. Also, most of the shapes can just slide together, but for the reindeer I needed to use icing to "glue" it all together.

I was inspired by those 3D animal cookie cutters that you can buy. But I thought that since it's the holidays I would do a holiday themed set. I hope you like them.

Hello and thank you for your creation
Have you think about making the objects higher and make the edge thinner to better cut the dough.

printed these love them... but ive noticed on most of them the shells dont meet at the cutting surface making it so dough can fit between the cracks. tried printing with 4 shell helped but didnt solve the problem.. i will say i have noticed in many of the pictures of peoples cutters have the same issue..
thanks for the design!!!!

Try increasing your extrusion width to 0.48mm (usually the default is 0.40) That eliminated the problem for me..
In Simplyfy3D you can also set the extrusion width to "Auto" which also will do the trick.

I print them with 2 shells this way.. works every time.. (0.4mm nozzle, 0.3mm layer height)

Doesn't work for me. I tried that and in addition every gap fill setting I could find. No way. I printed them last Christmas, found them a few days ago inbetween some kitchen stuff and gave them a new try. I'll redisign them with thicker walls and a cutting edge of original size.

ill try that i alredy print at 2 shells but ill try the extrusion setting. im using maker ware so i guess i need to use a different program

This is awesome! Did you print these in ABS or PLA?

PLA. I don't think abs is great for using with foods.
