This thing works so awesome, my 4 year old was eating rice with it.

I was just sitting down to draft a design fr this. Then I thought it couldn't hurt to see if someone had already done this. This is exactly what I had in mind when I drew it out on paper. Good job! :)

Since I have MS and my hands don't work too good this is great for me. I have tried to use chopsticks but the fingers won't hold them well. Thanks for posting this.

Nice job! I had to scale up .08% so my chopsticks would fit. Works great!

I could be wrong, but by looking at it, you probably want to print it with the rounded part up, right? From trainers that my kids use, I would expect that the part that holds the chopstick in will break if you print it as shown in the STL rendering.

Yes, it broke in my case. But I'll give it another try with different slicer settings...

Works fine for me; printed 4 of them at once with multiply. In ABS; PLA night be more prone to breaking? Not sure. Seems to work great. I dropped them in the drawer with my chopsticks for when friends are over.

PLA = food safe, ABS = NO.

Chinese New Year's is coming up this week! Time to practice is now!

This is way better than my first try at it: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2682http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... . I'm going to print it right now.

Training Wheels for Chopsticks

LOVE IT! im rubbish at chopstix and this wll be fab to print out and play with

:D

I have my TOM starting to crank and after multiple frogs and other test projects this was great - simple but useful. Best compliment from my wife "ok - now I get it."

Just the kind of useful, simple item thingiverse needs more of. I'll be printing one for my fiance.

Yeah, that's what I need. I'd starve to death if had to eat Chinese without these. :)
