This 3D Chocolate Printer is… and I mean this very honestly… the best thing since sliced bread!
Because finally, it lets you do some really practical stuff with 3D printing technology. You can turn your chocolate into anything that you can imagine. So if you woke up one morning craving to have a slice of bread with a chocolate cup on it; or one with the latest designer sneakers on it, you can!
Made by FoodBot, this 3D Chocolate Printer basically works like a conventional FDM printer. The extruder head moves around the flat surface laying down melted chocolate in your desired shape in layers to form your object or pattern.
First off, the printer is very easy to operate. With the easy-to-use app, you can download models from the internet to your USB drive to print. You can also create the models yourself. The simple app interface lets you easily pause, restart, or even adjust the speed and temperature of the dispenser to perfect your model.
Because the temperature is adjustable, it allows you to print lots of different ‘ingredients’ besides chocolate. Biscuits, mashed potatoes, cheese, jam, creamy candy, and even mung-bean paste – they’re all printable. Imagine printing mashed potatoes into a full potato!
The printer also comes with printing heads in different sizes (from 0.3 mm to 1.2 mm).
This 3D Chocolate Printer would make an amazing addition to any kitchen at all. And it would definitely be an asset in a commercial setting. So chefs, bakers, cooks, and any typical chocolate foodie would be happy to own this.
