I liked wstein’s Customizable Measuring Cup/Scoop, but, as i (still) have no filament fan, i have a problem with 45° overhangs. So i put the scoop upright again. Print this with falsework.
Elsewhere i complained about the use of a ton of units, and i still try to get everyone to use practical units. Americans should look up the millilitres per teaspoon &c. in this ist, and visit metric4us at their leisure after they printed their scoop.
As a reminder to everybody, millilitre and ml are just synonyms for cubic centimetre and cm³.
The customizer works now, after i removed every non-ASCII character from the input file.
You need falsework for the handle. See above and below.
I just slightly tweaked this from wstein’s original. See the “remixed from” thing for details.
The size may be off a little bit more than the original. This is not a precision tool, just a rough measure.
There are more things to change than accessible in the customizer. Download the scad file, get OpenSCAD running on your PC and change them that way, if you want.
There is a little bit of history of my changes available at my github repo.
Take care when you use 3D printed parts with food.
- PLA seems to be better suited for food use than ABS, so you should use that. Or maybe PETG
- You should probably clean your nozzle once, to get rid of mineral oil and other residues.
- When you use an oiler, use a suitable oil. Maybe a vegetable oil or something like Ballistol oil.
These two articles shed some more light on the issue:
In the end, it is up to you. I can take no responsibility.
falsework: a temporary frame serving to support and brace a building under construction until it can stand alone.
In other word, those structures that you sometimes need when printing overhangs.My guess is that the first people that wrote a slicer just didn’t know that word, maybe even the large scale construction concept, and reinvented the wheel and named it the “circular transportation facilitation device”. Or “supports”. I try my best to use the correct word, falsework, when possible.
