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!

    I am not sure if i should post this here so please accept my apologies if I am at the wrong spot. Has anyone tried to do an FEM on an orthotropic material? I seem to have a problem in defining the material properties that is part of an assembly. Thank you for your suggestions in advance.
