Guides Make your own 3D Printed Cookie Cutters – with or without a printer

We hear a lot about 3D printing being used in industrial applications and prototyping, however, many hobbyists, DIY lovers and tinkerers use desktop FDM printers for their diverse needs. One of the popular 3D printed objects is cookie cutters. They are relatively simple to design and print in plastic even on a regular FDM 3D printer, resulting in ready-to-use cutters within hours.

  • Is it safe to use 3D printed Cookie Cutters?
  • How to design a custom Cookie Cutter?
  • Libraries with ready to use cutter designs
  • Tips for 3D printing
  • Get custom cookie cutters without a 3D printer

Products that are printed on regular FDM machines used for versatile parts, can’t be called 100% food-safe. That is purely due to the machine’s printing head and extruder being exposed to particles from various filaments and not cleaned after each run. However, finished plastic parts are rigid and stable, they don’t emit anything until exposed to high temperatures or excess moisture.

For PLA (more commonly used) parts the transition temperature is around 122-176°F (50-80°C). Thus, for cookie cutters, 3D printing is a suitable way of getting safe custom parts.

3D Prints by Randolf Leipnitz, Holger Kuznik GbR

3D printing starts with a 3D design file of the part you need. There are several ways of making your own 3D model for cutters for different skill levels.

Experienced: Fusion 360

If you are familiar with 3D modeling or feel brave enough to try 3D design software, there are many open-source and free step-by-step tutorials for creating cookie cutters. One of the most common programs for handling such modeling tasks – Fusion 360. It is relatively simple to import an image into the software and then trace it with a Spline tool. After that, you’ll need to make an outline of the created contour and extend the wall created.

For cutters that also have some details inside (not just the outer shape) you will also need to extrude those ones as well, keeping them at a lower height, so they don’t cut the details out but rather just emboss them onto the dough. They also require being connected to the outline and combine and that, pretty much, all. Check out more detailed instructions for working with Fusion 360 in this guide by Nikus.

If you are planning to try modeling your cutter yourself manually, we also recommend you have a quick look at FDM 3D printing tolerances and numbers for minimal details to make sure your cutter will be printable.

Medium: TinkerCAD + SVG file

For first-time designers, a simpler way of getting a DIY cookie cutter is to use .svg files or design software like Adobe Illustrator to create ones. Then, it is down to simply importing the cutter shapes, re-sizing and combining the parts in free-to-use and beginner-friendly TinkerCAD. We highly recommend a tutorial below for more details.

Newbie: customizing apps

If you aren’t friendly with design software or don’t want to invest a lot of time into this, no worries! There are apps that can generate a cutter model from your picture or customize preset shapes. Currently, the most popular one is CookieCAD.

3D printed cookie cutters are a popular item to experiment with. Thus, there are many diverse 3D models both free and purchasable, which are ready to use and tested by others. Check out the popular STL files libraries, and the chance is high that you’ll find something close to what you need.

With a suitable model 3D printing a cookie cutter should be relatively simple. Among all filament types available, we recommend sticking to basic PLA filament as it is pain-free to use and has great detail transition. For the design itself general rules for FDM printing are:

  • Model design details to be larger than 1.15 mm or at least 0.5 mm;
  • Ensure a model's wall thickness of 1.2 mm at least;
  • For text, prefer thicker fonts and opt for 1 mm depth/height for it;
  • Remember to have the text mirrored, so it comes out correctly on the cookie;
  • Place the model in the file with the “cutting” side up, so it’ll be printed from the flat and wide base.

Don’t own a 3D printer? It’s not a problem. You can use a 3D printing service to order your custom cookie cutters made and delivered. Simply drop your file into the widget, choose a quantity, select material and color for your cutter to instantly see the price.

Admit it, would you like to receive a delicious gift with a unique design? It's not as difficult as it might seem at first glance! All you need is a little imagination and a 3D printer. Meet Ekaterina Zotova , a girl who has many unusual hobbies, one of which is the development and printing of original cookie cutters.

Hello to all printer lovers! My name is Katya and I want to tell you one of my stories :) This is a story about my love for sweets!

In general, I'm kind of like a digital artist, I draw for myself and for work, I paint and paint different things, interesting and not so much.

There are so many things in the world that you can easily get carried away that I never have a problem with what to do today.

A few months ago my brand new PICASO 3D Designer came to me, which I planned to use for creativity. Since I love to draw and model, and I'm also crazy about a lot of games and cartoons, 3D printing for me is an opportunity to turn my ideas into real objects.

Of course, I couldn't help but share the news about the purchase of the printer with my friends! I know a lot of very talented people, I'm really lucky.

Literally a few days after the arrival of the printer, Tatyana Koshantaeva , my friend, a gingerbread sorceress and pastry master, wrote to me. Tanya does incredibly cool things.

She invited me to take part in the production of her gingerbread and cookies. What happens in the end can be seen in her Vkontakte group. I was the proud owner of several gingerbread sets, though not for very long. Due to the fact that I love sweets, they did not live long. I think that after watching you will also want to drink a cup of tea, or maybe even a couple, and eat something delicious! We have a delicious bonus just in case. =)

Beginning craftsmen carve each gingerbread by hand, which is commendable for perseverance, but when producing a large number of goodies, it absolutely makes no sense. Therefore, we decided to "automate" its production process: we printed forms for cutting out the contour of gingerbread cookies (cookie cutters), and also made several prints for testing on the test.

For example, I like to make cookies based on various cartoons, and Tanya does everything that the customer's heart desires.

There are three options to get a unique cookie cutter - print ready-made models by downloading them from one of the sites with models in the public domain, make models yourself (in one way or another) or buy ready-made, interesting cookie cutters, for example, at the Masters Fair. In the Russian-speaking region, this direction of 3D printing is still very new, but in the same America it is quite common, so it is not difficult to find ready-made interesting models or order similar forms from someone.

If you have your own printer, then a self-made form will definitely be cheaper than a purchased one, and the more complex the form, the more benefit you will get - the cost may differ by 3-5 times.

If you do not have a printer and you order the production of molds from a private craftsman, then the price will depend on the complexity of the work. Most often, if you want to get many forms at once, the masters, as a rule, make discounts. In the end, you get unique forms for the price of purchase.

It is worth noting that both purchased and home-made forms have their pros and cons.

If you want a simple and common form, you can just go to the store and buy it. As a rule, purchased forms, especially metal ones, are more expensive than hand-made ones.

The advantage of own forms, first of all, is uniqueness. This form can be reprinted if required. Another plus is the lack of restrictions for the culinary imagination.

Let's take a look at the steps involved in creating one of these forms.

My colleague is very fond of cats, which is not surprising, everyone loves cats. At the same time, she did not want something very ordinary, and she turned to me with a request to help her realize the idea.

  1. She sent me a picture with a cat's skull (the authorship of some EXM, we did not find more accurate information about the author) and said that she wanted to bake such cookies.
  2. In Photoshop I made some black and white alpha masks to extrude the geometry I wanted. We take into account that the more complex the form and the more small details it contains, the more jambs you can get on the print. We try to simplify everything to the maximum, if we have such an opportunity.
  3. After that I opened Zbrush and extruded all the necessary masks from the plane.
  4. Usually makes 2, 3, 4 or more parts. I adjusted them to the height I needed, combined them into one model, and exported the already merged object for printing in the size I needed.
  5. You can render a model for a nice preview. For example, in KeyShot!
  6. Next, I opened Polygon, added our STL model and calculated its printing with PLA plastic, because it is considered to be environmentally friendly. For printing molds, medium print quality is sufficient, with a layer thickness of 0.2 mm. Printing time was about an hour.

While the form was being printed, I had time to prepare the cookie dough. Now it's time to test our forms. Success! Everything turned out great for me!

By the way, when washing such forms, do not forget that PLA plastic should not be heated above 70 degrees Celsius, it has a low melting point.

Ready-made cookies, mmm… :)

3D printing allows you to decorate many household processes and turn them into an interesting, exciting game. Until I made my own molds, it never occurred to me to start baking cookies. But the forms appeared, and the result brought a lot of pleasure. I wish everyone to feel the joy of amazing discoveries, go for it!

Have you read to the end?

We present the most persistent bonus - the recipe for Sugar-Vanilla Cookies from Tatyana Koshantaeva;)

DIY cookies / Sudo Null IT News (Let me remind you that "Prodlenka" makes interesting free events for children with the best Russian and foreign experts.

And they are freely broadcast throughout the country).

The next lecture (February 22) was about confectioners. An idea came up - is it possible to make a "bundle" between programmers (IT-specialties) and confectionery? I talked with the organizers - it turned out that there are enough intersections: there are 3D printers that print with sugar, you can 3D model molds for pouring chocolate, there are delta 3D printers for creating pastries, there are chocolate 3D printers.

But we stopped at the simplest - this is the creation of 3D cookie cutters.


  • create a 3d model of the mold,
  • 3d print,
  • make cookies,
  • treat the guys at the event

There were only a few days left before the start of the event, and there will be a story about how everything was - from idea to implementation.

Find/make a cookie shape

Cookie molds are not something new, I remember there was a post about them on Habré, and we printed a mold in hackspace, and the participants baked, and this is what happened:0085 .

But I wanted to make them themed cookies - by February 23 (the event about confectioners was on February 22). I immediately thought of making a star, but this is somehow not original, so I decided to make a mold for an airplane.

After a short search, I settled on this - meet the T-50, a 5th generation fighter:

Here is its model:

Based on this model, using the free and open graphic editor GIMP, a mask was made:

The mask for the shape is ready, now you need to make a 3d model.

Make a 3d model of a cookie cutter

The question of where to do it was solved simply - the service. This is a free specialized service for creating cookie cutters:

The principle of operation of the service is simple - with the mouse we click on the working area, and lines are created between the points where we clicked, after completing the shape (clicking on the starting point) - the shape is displayed on the right above is a preview.

For example, let's make the simplest shape, a triangle:

We see on the right the display of the shape created by the program (in addition to the outline, the program creates a small frame at the initial level - this increases the strength of the model). It is also possible to edit the "nodes" of the model, and we can click on the "edges" and make convex / convex contours.

Below the preview screen are the settings for the size of the created 3D model:

- the maximum size of the form (Large 4") - (4 inches = 10 cm)
- height (0.65") approx. 1.5 cm
- wall thickness - 2mm

You can change these settings to obtain molds of different sizes.

And below is the button to download the cookie form - Download 3D File . Click and get cooke.stl file (3d model in STL format).

The service has the ability to upload a picture - Trace . In this case, you can "circle" the contour in the picture.

Let's load our template. And we can “click” along the contour.

But to automate contour tracing, the service provides a function "Magic trace" - this function allows you to find the contour of an object. We click on it, and after that we click on the “body” of our airplane contour, and the system itself creates the contour. Here's what happened:

3D models were made - for different sizes of cookies. STL files can be downloaded from here.

This is how the created STL models look like in the Cura 3D printing program:

You can read more about the print time estimation in the Cura program here (the presence of a 3D printer is not required).

Print the 3D model on a 3D printer

The guys from the Moscow hackspace Neuron agreed to help in printing the molds (3D printing laboratory, thanks to Ivan).

This is what it looked like:

Printing process:

And the finished mold:

Making cookies

Julia (prodlenka project manager) helped in making cookies.

Here are her photos of the making process, based on the recipe:

The dough is made, rolled out, and on it we make cookies with the help of molds:

And after that we bake in the oven:


Here is a story about 3D cookies at the event:

And Yulia demonstrates the result:

A fragment of the broadcast about 3D cookies.


If you want to make a 3D form using the cookiecaster service, then there is a bonus for you.

I talked to Ivan (Moscow) from the 3D printing laboratory, and they provide 15% discount all March for printing 3D cookie cutters (the average price is from 150 rubles/form).

Also, we, in Yekaterinburg in the MakeItLab hackspace, provide the whole month of March with a 15% discount for printing cookie cutters.

Maybe someone will make cookies by March 8th :)

You can find a lot of ideas for 3d models on the Thingiverse service, for example, the query "cookie cutter" - returns more than 1000 options.
