Salt Pepper Spice Shaker
Who doesn't need a lever operated salt, pepper and spice shaker :-)
Okay, I admit this is a little over the top. Still it was a fun little design project.
We have some large salt and pepper shakers from that well know food container company that begins with a "T". They have nice hinged lids but even though they are new, the lids fall off all the time. So I started out just wanting a design that captured the lid better. The lever and "odd ball" lid design were just for fun. The ball of course doesn't provide an air-tight seal, but it will help keep out dust and bugs.
My other goal was to design the parts so they could all be printed without any support.
The salt and pepper versions are obvious. The spice shaker has a large opening so it can be used for things such as crushed pepper, cocoa, cinnamon, or whatever you like.
As mentioned above, if you print with PLA with the files as they are presented, there is no need to add any support. They should print out perfectly. I made the fit slightly loose so that there is nothing critical. The layer thickness and infill also isn't critical. I used 20% infill. Even though PLA tends to be rather brittle, the spring on the lever worked fine with both PLA and PLA+. For other materials you will need to test if support is needed.
