New Fellowship on 3d food printing design

2017 is not waiting for anyone! March is already here and I am starting a new Fellowship…. How exciting! It’s funny because before this one I have only been part of one previous fellowship as an AiR at Pier9. So when I got the chance to enroll in a new one I did not hesitate even for a second!

I am joining the first cohort for the Science Sandbox fellowship @NewLab. And of course…my topic could not be anything else than 3d food printing related!!! hands up if you are feeling me on this one!!!! But what topic I will be working on???

I am gonna take the next 3 months to do research on 3d food printing design.

3d food printing design should be as as using a spoon or reading from a menu.

That is the whooole scope. For sure not an easy one, but any exploration towards that goal will give already good insights.

I will be mainly focus on talking to a lot of people and explore tangible and virtual design tools. Of course all the design tests will be actually printed. What links with my second goal. GET TO PRINT A LOT WITH MY NEW ZCORP! I expect to improve the way I sieve the powder, how to clean the prints but specially making for reliable prints and understanding the limits.

During this week#0, I looked into better ways to sieve the powder. First I wanted to buy a machine for it, later I wanted and ultrasonic sifter. Eventually I bought a couple of flour sifters, and tested them (cheap approach). It does the job. It’s better than the ring sifter, but it is a tough and long process, at least 15 minutes for 4 inches. Happy with it so far. Will need more tests!!!

Week#1 coming next!
