I just adjust the center part, great model! Works very well

hey man

could you please upload each file individually? at least the longest part. I want to print it horizontally, because for the heat is not printing right

Thanks in advance

That was quick. Thank you so much

The cutter has a hex center for several reasons:
1) Printing in straight line is more accurate than circles (actually circles is just a bunch of straight lines) --> I can get a better fit.
2) I do not want the cutter disks to do freewheeling because the individual disk might tilt or stop in the middle of the dough making a mess rather that clean cuts --> the cutter discs "help" each other through the dough.
3) A tight fit between the discs and the rod make it even more rigid. If the wheel were freewheeling the rod would need to be thicker

Use:
Yes, indeed I have used it, it works great - don't make the dough to sticky though - pasta dough should be quite dry to the feel for best results.

Rigid: Yes it is, no problems there

Cleaning:
No problem, take the handle off and clean by hand with a brush. Do not put it in the dishwasher... PLA gets soft around 70 deg. C, well in the range of a dish washer.

I came here to see how you printed that cutter. Very clever. Is if necessary for for the cutters to have the hex center? Seems like they could just individually freewheel on a round shaft.

Have you used it yet? Does it seem rigid enough? How hard is it to clean?
