3D Food Printing
3D printing is a trending technology and its application to food has been spotlighted recently. A fully developed 3D food printing technology will allows us to cook any food in any shape in a extremely low cost. Both analog and digital materials assembly technolgies can be explored. 4D food will self-cook cook upon demand.
In this Garage Physics Project, our initial goal is to print an edible gummy Bucky Badger. But we are exploring sugar and powdered vegetable material.
This group meets Fridays 11:00 am in Garage. In Spring 2014, activity may focus at the Morgridge Rapid Prototyping Center.
- Zero Waste Food Production
- Cheaper Food Costs
- Personalized nutrition

Methods of Printing Gelatin
- Using modified Ink printer technology? - In order for this, the particle size of the Gelatin has to be between 50 to 60 microns in diameter.
- Using Modified 3D printer extruder. (Universal Paste Extruder)
- Or Others...
