It seems to be the geekiest thing to want to own a 3d printer. Not just any old printer, but one that you can really make useful things with. Like chocolate…
While at a SXSW I checked out the ChefJet – a 3D printer that could make chocolate or sugar candies. I talked with Kyle on what it takes to create some 3D confections.
The ChefJet can be loaded with two types of cartridges – a sugar/water combination and a chocolate cartridge. Once you find the design you are looking for, simply plot it in the printer and set it to go.
Candies can be printed out relatively fast, depending on the complexity of the shape. But who wouldn’t want a chocolate shaped to their name or a candy bride/groom for their cake?
The best part is the price of the 3d printer is down to a sub -$5000 price range. It will well make up for the purchase with the first few events booked.
