Mold for making large (120mm) snowballs or scale to the desired size. It can also be used as a snow cone bowl.

Print with the handle down, support material required. I'd recommend using PET or PLA, at least for the larger sizes.

Thanks for sharing this awesome model! We made a video featuring it; check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKCqjdXADCw

I bet it would be nice if you tied these together with a string, that way you could drop one to grab the snowball, and you would not lose the other scoop.

Hey walter, is this copyrighted? I would like to use and distribute it.

I love it can I get one

... its a 3d printable file, so yes. either print your own, or use a contract print service to get it made For you..?

That looks really cool! I wish I could print it!

I'm trying to print without the supports now. Not pretty as it leaves a small hole in the middle, but I suspect it'll still work well.

If rotated to the side of the handle, could this be printed without supports? If so, can you please post a rotated stl? :)

I just posted a remix with the side of the handle down against the build plate: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:572012

Rotated Snowball Maker

Congratulations on being featured.
I do these scaled to 60% with 10% fill and .3 slice with support. Both halves at a once on a PMS in PLA.
A bit hard to remove the supports but with a stiff metal putty knife and some pliers there is a process that works every time.

If split the maker into 2 half and prints without the support!

does any one know if i should use supports for this print.

this is so going to be useful when i go to new york for january!

I scaled it down 65% to make a baseball sized snowball. This design is awesome.

man all the snow here just melted. but next year i know what I'll be bringing to the white elephant gift exchange
