A brilliant add-on for ultimaker. chocolate printing

Recommended Posts

That certainly looks nice, but chocolate printing still has a long way to go before we can print the Stanford bunny in its rightful chocolate.

On cooled beds: if you get below the dew-point, it will start to attract water droplets. Water and chocolate should not be mixed or you get an awful mess. A better solution would be to cool with lots of cooled air and/or to precisely cool the tip of the nozzle so that the chocolate is slightly solidified the moment it gets deposited. As it is now, the material retains too much heat (transports that heat too slow) and does not solidify enough to allow multi layered prints.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
