Cook.3D: a new food 3D printing approach

Gaia Di Martino

by Gaia Di Martino, Hochschule Ruhr West

Nowadays more and more people are intrigued by 3D food printing; but most of the 3D printers for food require a certain practical experience to be used at their best. On top of that, often these machines are hard and time consuming to be cleaned. This is how the idea of a new 3D printer was born: a machine that combines the perks of a greater automation of a control system and the cleanliness of a new concept for the printing head. A cleaner and more hygienic 3D printer for food that can be used by anyone, no matter the level of expertise.
