This is a set of 16 (sixteen) .STL files of cookie cutters (with impressions) and cookie presses.
- A press is a file that prints the cutter outline and press piece.
- A cutter is a file that prints a cookie cutter with built in impressions.
- The general thickness of the cutter and impressions are 1.5mm .
- The presses and cutters give at most a 5mm deep impression.
- I cleaned mine up with a wire brush and sand paper, sometimes a razor blade, then washed them before use.
- I used low quality settings and printed with a skirt. Your settings may differ.
- You can scale them if you want but keep in mind it will affect the width of the cutter and impression lines.
- Most of these are approx 4 inches at their longest measurement.
- Iron Hands is larger than most because well… that’s how it worked out. 4 inches was just too small for that one.
- You should be using a dough recipe meant for cutout cookies.
- Keep your cookie dough at most 1/4 inch thick. A bit less is OK too but you don’t want it too thin.
- Keep your cutters and presses dusted with floured/cocoa-ed. Maybe even greased if that’s a thing. =) Use a toothpick or something similar if dough gets stuck in small areas.
- If you are a seeing the support impressions from the cutters your dough is too thick.
- For presses: I tend to use the cutter first and slide them a bit to make sure the dough is not sticking to the surface, then pop the press in and press until i think I’ve got a good impression. Don’t press them too hard or you risk getting dough stuck or forcing it up the sides. You can always position the press back on top and press a little more if need be.
- Chill well before baking so they don’t puff up as much. I pop them in the freezer to get good and firm before baking.
I have personally printed some of these files on my Robo R2 printer in PLA and baked with a few of them!
