This is a palette-shaped tool for measuring how much spaghetti makes a serving (or two or three or four). It might work for other small pastas, but I'm not sure.

(There were some other things posted that did this, but I had trouble getting Slic3r to handle any of them.)

Serving size measurements are from the plans here: http://www.freepastatoolsplans.com/Assembly_4.htm


  1. Print.
  2. Fill appropriate hole with spaghetti.
  3. Boil water.
  4. Cook spaghetti.
  5. Add sauce, cheese and other ingredients as desired.
  6. Eat.

For this design, I drew it in Illustrator, exported it as a DXF with Inkscape, extruded it in OpenSCAD and printed it on a Printrbot using Pronterface and Slic3r. All source files are attached.

Doesn't seem to slice properly in S3D, the holes are missing, object renders as solid.

So nice but you should add numbers of portions, people

Thanks for creating and sharing this useful design!

The sizes are for one, two,three and for people?

Do you know some piece similar to penne measure??

I'm not aware of a similar type of measure for penne, especially considering how much shorter it is than spaghetti. A common suggestion ("common" in terms of the first few search results, anyway) is to use standard dry measuring cups, but different sites list different amounts per serving. (I've seen 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup and 1/4 cup all listed as acceptable for one serving.) If you find a design that might work, though, I'd definitely be interested!

Great! thank you! I just made one!
