I think that the license choices available were more limited back in mid-2010. You should be able to upload makes now.

ive tried making thse cutters a few times with the cupcake, and the layers keep coming out with a gap in between. this creates the issue of having dough get stuck in the layers and the walls of the cutters are very brittle. has anyone had this problem and do you know how to fix it?

Sounds like you might be using the default settings of Skeinforge 35. If you switch to Skeinforge (standard) under the GCode menu in RepG, then re-generate your gcode they should come out fine.

Holy moly! I made some cookie cutters like this out of disposable lasagna pans
&
amp; duct tape, but needless to say, these are so much better. Any chance I can coerce you to make me a set for $$? (I'm totally serious.) Another fun idea: Pac-Man
&
amp; ghosts cookie cutters. At any rate, these rule - nicely done!

Sure, just send me an email and we'll figure something out - techknight@techknight.com

Pac-Man and ghost cookie cutters would be fun. Not sure how the ghost eyes would be handled, maybe a separate piece for making an indentation (rather than a full cut) with eyes pointing in your chosen direction?

Count me in for the Tetris ones too. I live near Shannon so you can ship them in one order. Woohoo! -Dave

Ha! Hi Dave! :-)

Sweet! thanks, I'll email you. Re: Pac-Man, I just made the basic ghost shape, then put the eyes on with frosting. I'll see if I can dig up a pic.

@Ian ah, I think I had a bit of overhang on the raft but I didn't have to rotate it on my MakerBot.

I had to rotate the third item (the long straight piece) 45 degrees to get it to fit on the Makerbot build platform.

You can easily use all the dough at once, unless you suck at tetris.

I'm not sure which holiday needs tetris cookies the most, but arguably they all could use these. Awesome.
