Today is Thanksgiving and I just got one of my 3D printers back online and was itching for a project. My wife asked me if I could make her a Turkey shaped cookie cutter so she could make festive sugar cookies and how could I turn that down. I made her a dog bone cookie cutter a few months ago and she absolutely loved it and the cookies she made were the life of the party she was having at a friends house for her new puppies! If you are married you know it's much easier to buy technology when your wife benefits from it in some way :D

I downloaded the cookie cutter from Thingiverse.com...

Special thanks to nybble41 & wstrinz for the model!

Be sure and check out http://printedsolid.com for all your 3D printer material needs, they have great processes and great material!

This video will show you the entire process of sending the model to the printer, printing it, using it to cut cookies and even showing you the finished product!

Important advantages

Ultimately portable
This compact and sturdy machine can easily be carried by one person. No fragile parts are exposed on the outside, so you don't need to be so careful to show it off!
Is Ultimately small, prints ultimately large!
The Ultimaker gives you the most space on your desk while printing the largest objects! The build volume to frame volume ratio: 20% (9.7/47.1 liters). The two other highly popular printers have 3.2% and 1.4%.
Innovative motion control
Common printing speeds achieved by many printers are about 33 mm/s. We've printed at record breaking speeds of 150mm/s, while not even reaching the limit of the motors or mechanical setup!
Innovative material input
In case you run out of material during a large print job, you can replace the material easily, even during printing! It also allows you to use up those short lengths of feedstock that you still have or switch to a different color.
You have the freedom to experiment as much as you like! Are you thinking of improving a certain part? Do you have a good idea? All of the plans will be released online when we start selling! This includes the mechanical design, all software and the electronics files! Physical upgrades of the parts will be released for free, for downloading and for further improvement and experimentation by you!
The Ultimaker will never be limited to use a certain material that is offered at a premium price nor will it contain DRM technology that limit your freedoms. If you're not happy with the materials on offer, feel free to adjust it to work with other materials. So far, people have experimented quite successfully with printing in ceramics, metal, chocolate and cookie dough, to name just a few things!
