Step 3: Exporting and saving your cookie cutter designs
Next you will need to export you cookie cutter design in a format that can be printed on a 3d printer, an STL file (Standard Tessellation Language, which describes the surface geometry of the three dimensional shape, no texture, color etc., see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/STL_(file_format)
'e' exports the design as an STL-file, the user interface is simple, so you will need to manually add the .stl file extension.
Print your cookie cutter, or ask a friend, go to a local hacker space or use an online printing service.
Mix up your favorite roll out cookie dough and bake some geeky treats!
Note: After you print your cookiecutter, you may find some problems to fix. You can open previously saved files by using the 'l' key to load a cookiecutter design. (Note: make sure you are not trying to load the .STL version of your design, it will not load).
