The year 2014 has presented us a fair amount of new 3D food printers producing anything from printed chocolate to printed cookie dough (e.g. 3D Systems’ ChefJet sugar printer, Natural Machines’ Foodini). This year the XYZPrinting has entered the food industry with its 3D Food Printer, represented at CES 2015.
The machine is aimed for individual use as nobody wants to share, according to reviewers, tasty printed uncooked cookies and other dough-based pastries. All the ingredients are said to be approved by a special guru. The printer uses two materials – chocolate and dough, put in special food capsules. The print speed is rather high compairing to other branded machines and the price is rather low – somewhere between $500 and $1,900 (it’s not been set yet).
The XYZPrinting 3D Food Printer is easily operated and produces food of up to 7.8 inches (19.8 cm) x 5.9 inches (14.9 cm) x 5.9 (14.9 cm). The user can download 3D cookies and decoration designs from the company’s site and send them to the printer from the PC via USB. Consumers may be able to purchase the gadgets in summer 2015.
Here is a video (in Chinese) of how the printers works:
