Syringe-based 3D food printer

Posted on Friday, January 14th, 2011 in 3D fabrication by Ian

Fab@home‘s team is working on a syringe-based 3D printer that builds food one squirt at a time.

We think this is a really cool project, but question how many foods can be tackled with layer deposition. Cooking requires a lot of techniques. Take flour – gentle handling for flaky biscuit, kneaded to developed gluten for a crusty bread, or really banged about for a chewy bagel. It seems like a much more versatile robot would be needed to tackle these tasks.
