Candy 3D food printer announced

British start-up company 3D ventures has announced its intention to make a range of 3D food printers for both industry and consumer users, focusing on confectionery.

The first of these products, Candy, is a printer that helps consumers decorate cakes, make cookies and print bespoke chocolates.
It can print from any semi-solid foodstuff, and is simply a matter of filling up the dispenser with a filling of choice, selecting the design required from the supplied SD card and then printing. It ships with templates but users can create their own designs.

It should cost £300 but customers can order just an electric extruder from 3D Ventures that could be used it with a current 3D printer.

3D Ventures notes that the company is aiming to reach a fundraising goal of $100,000 on Kickstarter to attract as many backers as possible.  Their campaign pitch can be seen at:





Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.
