Halloween Cookie Cutter

Wednesday October 31, 2018 at 9:34am
Taking advantage of the food safe properties of PLA, we created a spooky bat shaped cookie cutter. I've come to realize that Halloween, like most seasonal holidays, is really an elaborate excuse to eat too much food. Rather than going trick and treating for snacks this year, we decided to use our CAD skills and a 3D printer to create some of our own. David Dolding, one of our technical interns, explains how below.
Halloween Cookie Cutter

Taking advantage of the food safe properties of PLA, we created a spooky bat shaped cookie cutter. For this print, a Sindoh 3DWOX1 printer was used, making it very easy to set up, as the 3DOX desktop application streamlines the print process. The software detected the PLA cartage that was installed providing the correct settings; once the object was aligned correctly, it was time to print.

The print took just over 2 hours with minimal supporting material due to the lack of over hangs. This meant that there was very little post processing required. Only a few small strands of filament needed to be removed. The Sindoh printer has a useful feature allowing access to the built-in webcam to monitor the progress of the print and stop it remotely if required. This meant I could monitor the print whilst working on other work.  

Following the print 52 successful cookies were made with the cutter as you can see from the images below.
