Also, would you kindly make a version with a larger hole? You would have to modify the design slightly. I don't mind doing it myself, but I do't know rhino and am failing to convert it.


upload a .dwg file of each piece that is solid. I tried to do this myself by downloading Rhino and converting, but upon opening in a CAD program familiar to me it was a big wireframe and unusable.

What is the difference between the M3 files and the ones without the M3 prefix?

you should design a double blade cutter!!!! theres so many that aren't nearly as sharp as they should be on the market and a razor blade is hard to beat.

This printed awesome! Thanks so much for sharing! Just a small drill to get the m3 hole cleared out (like that idea!) and the fit is perfect!

This will be my first project, on my first printer, just delivered today. So, as you may have guessed, I am clueless... What printer settings should I use?

This turned out quite nicely, though I had some issues with the excess not pulling off well. Needed a little cleanup with a knife. Not a big deal.

Nicely designed. I needed to separate the lid and carriage into two prints because they were too big for my Cupcake CNC to do together. I also had to scale the lid down 2% to fit properly, not sure why.

Thanks! Glad you like it.

I'll break up the lid and carriage to make it more cupcake friendly.

  • glad you mentioned the lid being too large. A friend of mine said he had a similar issue, so ill revise that a bit.

oh! and I like your idea to use a different color handle! i hadn't thought of mixing colors, but it looks pretty awesome!
