SolidWorks Teacher - Mechanical Ice Cream Scoop in SolidWorks


Ice Cream Scoop
I came across this ice cream scoop in my kitchen and couldn't resist modelling it. It is complete except for the torsion spring that adds tension to the lever. I did not model the spring because I did not want to complicate the assembly and prevent movement.  Otherwise, through use of fillets and a gear mate, this assembly looks quite accurate.  Thanks for viewing!
