    Description

    The volume of the bowl can be specified in ml.

    Image shows a 2ml version (and some too cheap, green tee ;-).

    The provided 5ml example equals a teaspoon, but I highly recommend to create your own with the included OpenSCAD source file.


    ---


    Fire up OpenSCAD and load the source file.
    Only six parameters need to be considered:

    volume = 5.0; // volume of the spoon in ml
    thickness = 1.4; // thickness of wall in mm

    gripDia = 7.0; // diameter of the grip
    gripLen = 80.0; // length of the grip
    gripAngle = 30.0; // angle of the bowl-grip joint
    sink = 0.4; // cut off the bottom a bit

    Most of them should be self explanatory.
    Pick a volume, a wall thickness and make the grip "look good" afterwards...

    The "sink" parameter cuts off a bit of the spoon's bottom and makes it flat. This results in a better adhesion to the printing bed.

    Small spoons (e.g. <5ml) may still require a raft.

    For goods that need to be measured by weight and not volume, it might be helpful to print a quick size test.
    If you set the following variable to "1"

    MINITESTGRIP = 0; // print test grip? 0/1 (off/on)

    the grip will be cut off and the resulting rest can be printed much quicker.
