Choc Edge 3D Chocolate Printer – 3D printing never tasted so good

Choc Edge 3D Chocolate Printer

We’ve shown you big 3D printers and small 3D printers before, but none of those discussed previously create such delicious results.

Bakers and dessert decorators have a new tool to add to their culinary arsenal with the Choc Edge 3D Chocolate Printer, offering yet another way to create food that almost looks too good to eat. Almost.

In addition to providing the ability to create 3D objects made of chocolate without having to rely on any type of molds, the printer can also be used to create 2D patterns on food, similar to the designs created with pipettes that are used by pastry chefs.

Unfortunately, this isn’t one of those kitchen toys priced for the hobbyist, but those that are serious about creating some serious eye-candy might not have a problem with the £2,888/$4742.38 price tag.

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.

Check out the short videos below for a few examples of what Choc Edge can do.
