This 3D Printed Measuring Cube Should Be in Every Kitchen

If you like to cook, it’s important that you measure your ingredients properly. It’s especially critical for baking. That said, every kitchen needs a set of measuring spoons and cups. Here’s a cool design for a kitchen gadget which combines a variety of measurement sizes into a single cube.

Designed by iomaa, this 3D-printable cube measures everything from a 1/2 teaspoon up to a full cup of ingredients, depending on which side you place it on, and which cubby you fill in.

The 3.5″ cube can be printed in imperial or metric versions, and the latest version offers all of the following measurements:

Cups: 1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1/3 cup, 1/4 cup. Tablespoons: 2 tbsp, 1 tbsp, 1/2 tbsp | in-line: 3-1/2 tbsp, 3 tbsp, 2-1/2 tbsp, 1-1/2 tbsp. Teaspoons: 1 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1/4 tsp | in-line: 1-3/4 tsp, 1-1/2 tsp, 3/4 tsp.

Metric: 240 mL, 120 mL, 60 mL, 30 mL, 15 mL, 7.5 mL, 5 mL, 2.5 mL, 1.25 mL | in-line: 52.5 mL, 45 mL, 37.5 mL, 22.5 mL, 8.75 mL, 7.5 mL, 3.75 mL.

iomaa hopes to produce these in materials like silicone and stainless steel, but for now you can print this measuring cube for yourself if you’ve got a 3D printer around. The design is available for download over on Thingiverse for free, though I recommend giving a tip to the designer if you decide to print one for yourself.
