#3DxKitchen – Matt Stultz’s Mini Maker Faire Cheese Printer #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Cheese Bot 2

A couple of years back, passionate 3D print materials experimenter Matt Stultz took the first steps on his journey into alternative printing materials: he made a 3D printer that printed in … “Cheese, Grommit!”

Though most of the project documentation is lost, Lenore from Evil Mad Scientist grabbed the above photo of an edible HackPGH cracker from when the project launched at the Pittsburgh Mini Maker Faire, lined up in traditional hackerspace gourmet style, with a custom sous-vide rig, and very possibly with a suspicious canister of Open Maté near at hand.

An excellent reminder that most 3D printers are little CNC rigs that can be tasked with melting, squeezing, depositing, and dripping whatever you need, wherever you need it:

This weekend the fun comes to Pittsburgh! The first Pittsburgh’s Mini Maker Faire is this Sunday, October 23, Noon-6pm at The Children’s Museum.  The event might be called mini but they have a mighty line up of makers who will be showing off their projects and offering workshops.  You can check out the entire list of makers here.

Cheese Printer – Matt Stultz, one of the co-founders of HackPGH will be there demonstrating the cheese printer.

  1. Matt Stultz is one helluva hacker. He comes up with the coolest stuff. One correction though, its HackPGH as in Pittsburgh.
