Foodini By Natural Machines – 3D Food Printing From Natural Food, Not Specialty Feedstock #3DxKitchen #3DThursday #3DPrinting


We covered the re-launch of Natural Machines with the Foodini back in December, but as they have dived into crowdfunding activities and have been giving talks on the conference circuit including Inside 3D Printing New York last week (see the 3:15pm session!), they have been generating more media to suggest the ways they imagine that a paste-extruder 3D printer variant. The way the Foodini functions is by using pressure to dispense food gel/paste — created on the spot from actual food, by their recommendation. Quite a different approach to the problem from machines working with speciality edible print materials such as the tasty Sugar Labs projects with 3D Systems or the ChocEdge chocolate typography printer from the UK.

While this is not yet a consumer product, watching Natural Machines and the others competing in this space is a fascinating chance to consider what the consumer food printing applications might be! And check out the recipes they continue to add!


Foodini helps create savory or sweet cuisine. The food is real food, made from fresh ingredients prepared before printing. Promoting cooking with fresh ingredients, Foodini manages the difficult and time-consuming parts of food preparation that often discourage people from creating homemade food.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!
