Tried printing it on a Dimension but the model has errors. It has lots of separate shells, for instance the gears. It was printed with space in between (I guess) so the inner orb didn't spin, all blades of the gears fell out. Also the shaft wasn't connected but issing a part, don't know what happened there..

f-ing cool but i cant print because i use PLA which is not soluble

So I Downloaded your model and i´m about to print it using a sharebot NG dualextruder and PVA as Support. But as I lunched the stl into Cura, it was tiny. Did you use Inches or Metric System on your Slicer?

Best Regards

so i got it working. The Size is.
x: 3,31"
y: 3,16"
z: 4,73"


x: 8,41 cm
y: 8,03 cm
z: 12,01 cm

i bet if you mounted the crank the other direction you could make whip cream with that! =^-^=

On what printe did you print it? Did yo uuse any support? Circles around I think will not print without support.

The one in the picture was printed as a single piece using a UPrint with soluble support material. I have also printed it in pieces using a makerbot replicator, and that also needed supports. There's more info in the description, if not go ahead and email me and I'll help you out.
