*I think the renderer is still mirroring text.... the actual STL\'s have the text the right way around
I need teaspoons to dispense nutrients to my hydroponic gardening system but I don't like to use the one I use for cooking. Instead of going out and buying some I decided to print my own. I had seen that TMR had designed some earlier but I didn't need quite as long a handle and I also wanted to label them with their quantity. It's a really cool feeling to not be bound by the limits of store-bought measuring spoons so... just because I could I printed a 13/16 teaspoon. yay!
One thing I would have liked to do is to also label them with their metric equivalent (ie. 1 tsp = 5 ml and 1 tbs = 15 ml) as that stuff can be really helpful when your trying to convert between the two.
Some printing tips:
-- don't use a raft - this gives you a much better chance of it being water tight
-- get the nozzle as low as you can to the surface at startup and really have the plastic get smushed in so that it doesn't curl and warp as much (happened to me on my first print).
-- adjust some of the fill properties (solid surface thickness --> 3 and extra shells --> 2 or 3)
That should do it!
