3D model description

It is a press for filtering, in the home preparation of milk and vegetable cheeses: soybean, coconut, etc.

For example in the preparation of soya milk, after passing the soya beans through the blender, the product is introduced into the cylinder and pressed with the press. Then the milk comes out from the bottom and the soya bagasse (the remains, which are called Okara) remain in the cylinder and you can use them for many other recipes.

It is also useful for removing liquid from some vegetables such as cauliflower.

Ideal for those who are into vegan cuisine, because it avoids the use of cloth nets or fine mesh strainers to eliminate the liquid in the preparation of milk and cheese. It allows to do it faster and in a more hygienic way.

There are two versions available: small and large. Both are included in the download here.

Designed for, where you can find some recipes for vegetable milks:

You can also find recipes with Okara:

3D printing settings

Although most preparations are cold filtered, it is advisable to print it on PETg because of its greater resistance to water and temperature, in addition to the fact that PETg is food grade. In any case, PLA also gives good results, although it may not be totally waterproof and if it is washed with very hot water it could become deformed.

The printing does not require any media and can be printed perfectly in a resolution of 0.2.

For the cylinder, if a 20% infill is used, a wall thickness of at least 0.8 or 1mm is recommended (In Cure, Shell/Wall Line Count = 4 or 5) and otherwise print directly with 100% infill, although this may cause you to use more material than necessary in the filter base.

For the press, there is no particular recommendation.
