3d printing Ice Cream on a hot summer’s day… (video) #3DxFood #3DThursday #3DPrinting

Check out a sneak preview of a cunning use of the FoodForm 3D printer coupled with a “Polyscience Anti-Griddle”.

3d printing Ice Cream on a hot summer’s day, from RobotsInGastronomy.com:

The summer is in full force here in Barcelona and what better way to cool off than a personalized 3d printed ice cream!?  Our resident food scientist experimented with some homemade ice cream recipes until she got one that worked great on the FoodForm.  Our friends at Cocktail Lab were also in need of a cool treat, and they were kind enough to let us use their Polyscience Anti-Griddle.

The FoodForm is the perfect match for printing on a variety of surfaces, and the pairing with the Anti-Griddle was a great combination of two great technologies.

As you can see we created a chilled ice cream swirl which was easy to remove and eat with our hands.  Lots more coming soon!

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!
