3D Printing

Discover the world of 3D Printing.

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing or Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) describes a host of technologies that are used to fabricate physical objects directly from CAD data sources.

In 3D chocolate printing, chocolate is melted, tempered and deposited into 2D cross-section on a substrate like a printer printing a 2D image onto paper.

The substrate is then lowered by a layer thickness and the deposition process repeats layer-by-layer to form a solid 3D chocolate product that is defined by a 3D computer design.

What makes 3d Printing better than traditional methods?

A 3D printer can directly produce 3D chocolate objects without using expensive molding tools. It can also deposit complex and artistic 2D patterns onto other foods or substrates similar to the way a pastery chef pipes chocolate onto cakes and deserts. The 3D chocolate printer can be broadly used to make creative, artistic, personalized and decorative chocolate products and gifts.

And what does the future hold?

What makes this technology special is that everyone is now having the opportunity to design and make their own chocolates.

In the long term, Choc Edge will supply retail units so that everyone can print their own chocolate designs in their local chocolate shop.

From reproducing the shape of a child's favourite toy to a person's face, the possibilities are endless!
