3D-printing add-on for printing food
[video at source]
An added feature for Structure 3D-printing has been developed allowing for Nutella-connoisseurs to fulfill their cravings and wildest chocolate-laden dreams. This add-on will enable 3D-printing of edible paste filaments, specifically useful when adding cool designs to delicious treats.
Discov3rys 3D-printer compatible extruder device connects to your printing apparatus and is capable of printing a variety of food like cookie dough, melted chocolate, meringue, fondant, icing, and Nutella. You can also print inedible objects like wood filler, silicone, polyurethane, ceramics, clay, and conductive paint if needed. Working with virtually any 3D-printer, the process seems simple enough; all you need to do is switch your printers pre-existing tip and hook the Discov3ry Extruders tube into the machine, and connect the extruder to the printers cartridge.
The set comes with reusable syringes, and the kits starting price is $249. This kit includes 3 x 60cc re-loadable food-grade syringes, 3 x 30cm reusable food-safe plastic tubing, 6 luer locks / tubing connectors, and an array of Luer lock tips. Discov3ry crowdsourced on Kickstarter to fund the endeavor, and totally surpassed its goal of $27,724 by raising over $78,000. The pre-orders of this invention will start to ship out in February 2015.
Some day her prints will come
Call me when they print Twinkies...................
Does it print Tea, Earl Grey, Hot?
And Mark Steyn says there haven’t been any great inventions since 1970.
Now that’s a technological breakthrough - but I’m still going to eat my nutella with a spoon.
One could use this to print somethign with low temp wax and then use that in a casting process to make it in metal.
That would eliminate the need to carve or cast the wax. Has anyone done that yet?
Yes. Both with wax and as a lost PLA process.
