3D Food Printing Cart by Green Geometries Laboratory #3dthursday

3Dprintedfoodcart

Here’s a really great DIY food printing cart — check out the wicker cart design to trap the wax paper for printing! Via YankoDesign:

The 3d printing industry has been transformed from a handful of manufacturers producing costly machines, to hundreds of individuals creating their own machines and sharing the instructions on how to make them. The incredible accessibility to this technology has the potential to affect many aspects of our daily lives, including how we think about food. What if instead of street hot dog stands we had 3D food printer carts?! This twist on the classic food cart sheds light on the future of this awesome tech.

The printer here creates what I’m guessing are simple chocolate confections, but this just scrapes the surface of what these machines might be capable of in the way of food!

And here is another rig from this same project (I must assume) with their 3D paste extruder in a MakerBot CupCake CNC:

Special thanks to Anthony for spotting my transmogrification of this into a 3D Printed Foot Cart! — Matt

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

Have you take 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 EL Wire and LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects!

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 have a cool project you’ve made that joins the traditions of 3D printing and electronics, be sure to send it in to be featured here!

  1. FOOT printing was better! ;-)

  2. Might want to check that title, unless they primarily print out foot-shaped candies.
