i think i would try to connect the 2 rotating parts on their end to prevent them from being pushed apart.

u/JALKHRL Aug 11 '22

As an empanada maker myself, yes, the dough and the filling will push the rotating parts away easy.

u/BGRADE5 Aug 11 '22

As an Argentine aerospace engineer empanada maker myself I like your design, however is an empanada without crimped edged still an empanada?

20

u/hydronas Aug 11 '22

As a Canadian with some Argentine heritage empanada maker and maker/printer of things, I concur with the crimped edge being needed. I also suggest that a design change to the rollers could have divots or raised edges to create such crimps

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

Yeah youre right, it is still in progress of designing, so it will have crimped edges.

Agreed. If this were machined out of steel then I could see it working with only being secured from one side, but if it’s 3d printed there is no way this will perform as designed.

How does it work, exactly?

46

u/2md_83 Aug 11 '22

you put your cut out dough on the 2 rollers, fill it with the filling and then push the plunger -> the dumpling ( or whatever you call it ) will get closed and fall down ready for you to put a new dough cutout on top

you can buy these ( never used one myself )

Someone wanted this machine to be modeled for 3D printing so it is in progress of modeling

u/olderaccount Aug 11 '22

Looks like you followed the common commercial design. Might as well stick another mold on the opposite side like they do. Maybe also add some texture around the rim to get better crimps.

12

u/byOlaf Aug 11 '22

Hey, you could do custom textures to create some funky crimps.

Also, I'm calling Funky Crimps as a band name.

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

Yeah, there will be crimps on the edge, this is just first view of making the machine.

People like you don’t get enough credit. U rock!

u/0ct0c4t9000 AnetA8 Aug 11 '22

apart from supporting the rods from the other end as well, i’d also fully rotate them, so the empanada would be pooped by the machine instead being manually recovered from the rods on the way back

1

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

Rollers need just 180 degree turn and empanada cand fall off.

Whose turn is it to whinge about 3d printing and food safety?

u/Oivaras Aug 11 '22

What food-safe plastic will they use?

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

PETG or wrap the rollers in plastic thin foil.

This awesome, I’m wondering, what program did you use to model? Thanks for sharing!

13

u/JoebutSafeforwork Aug 11 '22

Looks like fusion 360, and I'm quite jealous I'm a few weeks into using it and I can draw circles and squares but this is beautiful! This is my most "advanced" model yet lol, it's a mount for 1" PVC pipe to zip tie a christmas light prop to Printables link

30

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

As someone who does CAD for a living, let me let you in on a secret: it's all circles and rectangles. Some lines if you need to do anything fancy. The hard part is figuring out how to break down a design into those parts to draw it.

13

u/ThatsALovelyShirt Aug 11 '22

There's a lot of lofts, sweeps, fillets, and chamfers too.

And revolves/pipes, but that kinda falls into "circles".

8

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Yeah, but to draw the lofts and sweeps, you make sketches that consist of circles, rectangles, and lines. Fillets and chamfers are button clicks so they're easy to add on lol.

Edit: if anyone talks about splines I'll fight them

3

u/Eoinknd16 Aug 11 '22

Done a few thousand cad designs at this point. Idfk how to use the fucking spline

3

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Dude right??? I used one to make a pilsner glass for a mold, and God damn it took literally 45 minutes of minute tweaking to get it exactly right.

3

u/isthatsuperman Aug 11 '22

The hard part is figuring out how to break down a design into those parts to draw it.

I’m just a hobbyist but it was definitely a learning curve trying to figure out subtractive drawing and planning out a model ahead of time in order to not break it later. TNP is the bane of my existence.

2

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Yeah, making models as parametric as possible is definitely tricky. It really does pay off when you need to change things though, especially if you name your features in the feature tree after what it's supposed to be instead of having a wall of "Extrude 1/2/3/4". Taking the time to mentally plan it out first is always a great help.

1

u/1-760-706-7425 Aug 11 '22

And, splines. Don’t forget splines.

3

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

True but I work in manufacturing with mills, so they really don't like it when we use splines. Much harder to measure. I've actually never used a spline professionally, but have a couple times on personal projects.

1

u/OhDeeter Aug 11 '22

I love telling people (as a CAD Engineer) that my job is to draw circles and squares in the shapes I want like custom legos :P Did it just earlier today!

3

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Basically! I'm doing that now! I work in Electronics manufacturing, so it's relatively tight tolerances, but it's oh so satisfying when you test a fixture and it works perfectly.

1

u/philnolan3d Aug 11 '22

I do use circles and rectangles a lot but it's certainly not all I use.

1

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

I mean it's simplified a bit for sure, but in my actual job that's pretty much all I use. It's in Autocad, which makes it a little more understandable. Even in my personal projects in Solidworks I avoid using splines or ellipses or things like that if I can, typically due to manufacturing needs (my 3d printer doesn't love gradual curves).

1

u/philnolan3d Aug 11 '22

Yeah maybe it's different for me I use MoI3D for CAD stuff and it's more creative than technical.

1

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Ahh yeah if you're doing more of a sculpting thing that would make sense. From what I can see what you use is more similar to Blender than Solidworks, so I'm not at all surprised that we have different workflows!

1

u/philnolan3d Aug 11 '22 edited Aug 12 '22

Oh no sculpting, I'd be using 3D-Coat for that and Lightwave for polygonal modeling. MoI is what I use for CAD.

1

u/ppp475 Aug 11 '22

Oh interesting, the few screenshots I saw of it looked like a sculpting like program. I'll have to check it out!

Keep going buddy. I’ve used various CAD softwares for 9+ years and things on here still surprise me. I’m still learning myself. Moral of the story keep going and keep learning. It’ll surprise you one day how much you’ve improved

2

u/EvilsConscience Aug 11 '22

I make my living as a draftsman.

You're never done learning these programs. Starting out in drafting by actually making your parts is probably the best way. You'll automatically start designing your parts with their production method in mind, and it'll force you to learn niche methods because your project isn't quite right.

2

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

You will get expirience overtime, as a beginner i was also at your level of designing and printing.

I saw your model of the PVC holder mount and have to say that it can be improved a little so it would be easier to mount it to the wall and then mount the PVC pipe. Just cut out that circle like in this picture and it would be much easier to mount and dismount if needed.

2

u/JoebutSafeforwork Aug 12 '22

Hey thanks for the insight, your design is actually a really common one in our hobby(holiday light nerds) because it works great for most things and you can just pop it on and off.Its actually what i started with on this one, but the weight of the prop and the angle in which it was pulling down just made it not feasible without zip tying the mount to the pvc and even then it just didn't feel like something I wanted free standing on my roof, with a couple hundred bucks worth of lights/prop.

PVC Coro Clip this is a really common one too which is similar to your design but with the bolt to go through the 10mm corrogated plastic, it works awesome for most medium/small props I've used it a bunch.

u/JonJonSee AnyCubic Photon Mono SE Aug 12 '22

True, but to any beginner, for mechanical parts, I'd just advise Solidworks, no software is as easy to use as SW.

From what he wrote, it's not about printing an empanadas machine, it's about a client wanting one of these things modeled in CAD.

To help with the compression of the empanadas between the the rollers, is put a second side on the design with bearings to hold the other side in place.

u/semperverus Monoprice Maker Select v2.1 Aug 11 '22

What's the point of the side holes if they all get filled in?

1

u/Weissenberg Aug 11 '22

They look like retention pin holes to me. Each step of the model is slightly larger than the last so they slide over each other then the pins hold them all in line.

Youre right. Thats the point of the pins.

As seen on TV!

I applaud your design work and creativity, but I have doubts about how well it will work. "Clever" kitchen gadgets usually don't work amazingly well, or they work well enough but add another problem (like mess/more to clean/too many extra steps/etc).

That said, I don't think I've ever seen an empanada maker specifically... So by all means, give it a try. I could be way off.

The base most likely won’t hold that upright either add a clamping method to your counter top or extend the base past the rollers or add another vertical support on the other side of the rollers for additional support

Most of the force is all in line. I would beef up the base just a little but I don't think a clamping method would be necessary.

The question is, is this BIG enough for empanadas? Because if it’s not, I’d rather go on Amazon and spend $15 on a (food safe) stainless steel dumpling press than spend several hours printing a (non- food safe) one. If it is big enough for empanadas, ❤️

🤦🏼‍♂️ duh

1

u/mgc418 Prusa MK3s, Prusa Mini, Voron V0.1(931) Aug 11 '22

I would extend that base out like someone else suggested. You could dish it out a bit to hold a bowl and then add angled supports front and back at the base to increase strength where the base and upright meet. And also like another suggested, connect the ends of the rollers. But so far the progress looks real good

1

u/RopesAreForPussies Aug 11 '22

Cool so far. I saw the Empanada roller video a while ago and thought it would be cool to print one, guess I never got around to it…

You planning on sharing the STL when your done?

1

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

Yep, will share the STL when its done, but not in the near future as it still needs to be reworked.

1

u/TurdGargler Aug 11 '22

You should really remodel that rack so that the tooth profile does not require support material when printing. Same with the gears

2

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

I didnt see the other way to keep it in line guided motion so maybe there is another and better design but for now it is like this.

2

u/TurdGargler Aug 13 '22

I would probably make the guides negative then the positive side would be on the case.

Or you could bolt on/glue the guide on as a separate part.

1

u/Ojgest Aug 13 '22

Yeah thats a good idea about glueing separate parts on rack.

Need to get some food safe material for my printers though. Anyone know something that would work well with a SeemeCNC Artemis with a 1.75mm nozzle?

3

u/Will2025 User Flair Aug 11 '22

There's no 'food safe' filament per say. And generic filament definitely isn't the way to go. Assuming you do have a 'food safe' filament, (which is a thing) there are still many other problems. Because printing isn't perfect, small tiny holes will be formed in the final product, even if you can't see those holes. It's difficult for water to dry when it's trapped in there as well as saliva. This leads to mold and general unsanitary nastiness in the print. AND not to mention, no matter how clean you think your nozzle and stuff is, there's still toxic residue from other filament which inevitabley gets into your prints. I recommend staying away from anything food related

1

u/GoneFar Aug 11 '22

Thanks I really appreciate the reply!

u/neonwhizstream Aug 11 '22

Coat the rollers with silicone. Really, it's the only way.

1

u/GuyWithRealFakeFacts Aug 11 '22

Wouldn't you want some sort of interconnecting grooves on the edges of the scoops in order to make it seal the dough better? Like how they use forks to do it normally? Or is that not necessary?

1

u/Ojgest Aug 12 '22

It will have the seal like zig zag or something it is still in progress of modeling.

1

u/dancrum Aug 11 '22

Curious as to why you would use plastic clips instead of screws to hold it together

1

u/Desperate-Flamingo68 Aug 11 '22

Might want to Add a hole at the opposite end of the rotating forms to allow a pin to go through, so they don't come out when there is pressure from the material you are forming.

1

Gonna need your dough recipe, for reasons. One kitchen I worked at used a perogie dough so I'm open to new ideas.

Good start. Base should be bigger so it doesn’t tip when you operate it. The ends of the cylinders should be joined with a piece that prevents them from pushing away from each other. Tbh I think a stamp type of press would be easier to design, work better, and have fewer parts.

In assembly in solidworks, part by part

My Argentinian parents would laugh hard at this. Use your hands my friend.

There's actually a product like this in the market already. Looks similar in the design as well
