1. Could you please introduce yourself.
Hello, my name is Julian Sing, Founder of 3dchef.nl.
2. How did you get involved into 3d food printing?
This is something that was a natural progression. For a long time I have been involved in 3d printing professionally, used laser cutters for all sorts of things and do cake decorating as a hobby, 3dchef is a combination of my passions. Before 3d printing of food I was using my laser cutter to cut ,engrave and build things is food, such as laser engraved banana’s or objects fused together from sugar. 3d printing was the next step along that path.
3. What is your printing equipment?
A modified zcorp 3d printer
4. Most challenging part of working with sugar?
Part Strength. Like most powder based 3d printers, my printer will print whatever you like, but getting it out in one piece is the trick….
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! We also offer the LulzBot TAZ – Open source 3D Printer and the Printrbot Simple Metal 3D Printer in our store. 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!
