3D model description

Did anyone else start making fresh pasta during quarantine? Up your homemade pasta game with this simple and handy fluted cutter! It's perfect for making eye-catching shapes like agnolotti, sfoglia lorda, ravioli, farfalle, and many others with ease. Really, any egg-dough pasta will look cooler with fluted edges.

Like the vast majority of my designs, this is designed with durability and functionality in mind. It prints without supports and has modular parts so that you can replace a broken blade or faulty bearing without reprinting the whole thing (you could even design one of your own with a different pattern—I'd love to see it if you do!).

To assemble, print one each of the Handle, Fork, and Fluted_Blade, and two of the Bearing_Casing models (again, all printed without supports). Insert the fitting end of the fork into the rectangular slot at the end of the handle (notice that the hole in the fork must align with the hole in the handle). Fix the fork in place with an M3x12 bolt and an M3 hex nut, for which there's an indentation on one side of the handle. The two Bearing_Casing prints fit by friction onto both sides of a 22mm outer diameter bearing, which itself fits by friction into the hole in the Blade. The circular chamfers on the inside of the prongs of the fork fit into the inner bore of the bearing (the one I used has a 10mm ID; I can't seem to find this size anymore, but one with 8mm ID should work). Tighten the fit of the fork with a M3x20 bolt and M3 hex nut, for which there's an indentation in one side of the fork. These instructions may sound a bit complicated, but the assembly is pretty self-explanatory. You can probably figure it out from the photos. Your fluted pasta cutter is complete!

Please note: extra care must be taken any time you're printing something to be used in contact with food, and it's your responsibility to make sure you're being safe. I used a food-safe filament (Fillamentum CPE HG100) and coated it with a food-safe resin (ArtResin) just to be extra cautious. It would also be a good idea to use a food-safe steel nozzle for all your food-contact prints.

No supports! I used fine resolution on the blade so that it cuts more cleanly and consistently.
