Moving to New Lab

March, 2017 already. Time flies, faster than we would like but, well, that one thing its the same for all of us. This time our weekly adventure is moving the ZCorp printer, again. To New Lab!

I have been recently accepted as a Fellow there, so I get to have more space for my experiments. Thanks a lot to TK from the Thai Bird for helping me out and my wife to!

Moving a 100 kilos machine it has some challenges, specially when there is no elevator involved. But lessons learned from the first time.

  • Tag and sort all the screws
  • Disassemble E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G (specially the piston walls)
  • Take your time

Luckily everything went well and the printer has already a new home. Time to start working on some new projects! Any suggestions?

New powder and paste extruder idea

In this week’s video we cover one of our old ideas, still pending to explore. In this case nothing but a pepper grinder transformed into a powder extruder that include a nozzle within.

This idea was born and execute during my time at Pier 9. the goal was to merge textures within one print, explore supports.

Parts:

  • Nema 17
  • Gear reduction
  • Drive shaft with an interior pipe
  • Nozzle
  • Grinder core
  • Grinder housing

Soon more information. Do you have any idea on how we could use it? Let us know we are open to try. We are really interested using and combining alcohols and sugars to burn them.

Previous test with just the power where really fun, excited to redo them and share them with you!

Does this video triggers any idea for a recipe? Contact with us!

3DFPod Ch. 7 – Intro to 3D Food Printing for Makers! | 3DCxPinshape

Continuing on our podcasting journey in 3D Food Printing we have a special chapter: Intro to 3DFP for MAKERS! This is a special chapter because it correspondes with our latest collab: 3DIGITALCOOKS x Pinshape. Big shoutout to Lauren Watkins and the whole Pinshape community for welcoming us with open arms and allowing us to help explain how to get into 3D Food Printing for Makers.

A couple of the great things about getting started with 3D food printing as a Maker is that there is already a skill set and more importantly a frame of mind that allows the Maker to move quickly in 3DFP.

Preview of Ch. 7: Intro to 3D Food Printing for Makers podcast

  • How to start with 3D Food Printing as a Maker
  • Recipe suggestions
  • Extruders for 3DFP
  • 3D printers that will you will want to look at for 3DFP
  • 3D food printing design tools makers can use

3D FOOD PRINTING PODCAST CH.9: 3D FOOD PRINTING CONFERENCE 2016 IN REVIEW

What a month Aprils’ been for 3D Food Printing! Foodini rolling of the manufacturing line, Pizza Printer crowdfunding campaign, 3D Food Printing Panel at SXSW: SouthBites, 3D Food Printing Conference and the biggest moment of the month for us had to be announcing our 3D Food Printing Workshop: EXPLORATORIUM at FabCon 3.D 2016 in June!

The first quarter of the year has been moving fast for 3DFP and it doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon 2016 is turning into the biggest year yet for 3D Food Printing, which brings me to today’s 3DFPod…

One humbling point is the feedback we got about the 3D food printing podcast! I just wanna say how happy we feel that people came up to me to tell me they enjoy the 3DFPod!  We produce if for YOU and to know that you’re enjoying it makes us want to do more of them and to keep improving our podcasting skills.

2016 3D Food Printing Conference Review

In addition to this 3DFPod we have created content to supplement it: A video on the 3DIGITIALCOOKS YouTube channel, and an upcoming 3DFPconf “Review in Pictures” post on 3DC as well.  We’ve also shared/liked/and followed tons of other attendees and speakers content they’ve created from the 3DFPconf on our social media channels as we believe sharing is the way to help 3DFP grow. If you were there and we missed our chance to talk, please reach out to us on the contact page of 3DC or social media anytime!

Here’s some highlights from 3DFPod Ch. 9: 2016 3D Food Printing Conference Review:

– Food Ink 3D Printed Dining experience
– pre-3DFPconf meetup
– the 3D Food Printing community is growing
– more and more students studying 3DFP
– 3D Food Printing is spreading throughout the globe FAST

3D Food Printing Workshop @ FabCon 2016

We are happy, glad, hyped and excited to announce that our next 3D food printing workshop will happen at Fabcon 3.D 2016. 14-16  June at Messe Erfurt in Erfurt, Germany.  Huge thanks to Florian Horsch, Marcus Lutterburg and Diana Kuecher and the whole Messe Erfurt team for their selfless efforts to bring our workshop to FabCON 3.D. 2016!

Unless you are new to the 3DIGITALCOOKS community you know we have been planning to have a 3D food printing workshop for a long time, and it feels right to share with you all the experiences and learning about 3d food printing during the last years. We have created a 3D food printing workshop that requires no previous knowledge or understanding of what 3d food printing is. During the 3[d] hours of the course you will get an understanding of the importance of 3d food printing beyond the Star Trek hype. A down to earth EXPLORATORIUM time to learn about 3d food printing.

Be aware that this is not a POWERPOINT session. The 3d food printing workshop is about learning through experience. Right from the very beginning each concept, each lesson is presented through food. Why food? Because food is what truly makes 3d food printing amazing and so special. No gimmicks.

What to expect at the 3D FOOD PRINTING WORKSHOP: EXPLORATORIUM

  • A clear introduction to how to turn a digital design into an edible item.
  • Definition of a digital recipe.
  • Understanding of the true potential of design and customization for 3D food printing.
  • Explaining the four kings of 3d food printing: taste, aroma, texture and looks.
  • Introducing different 3D food printing techniques.
  • Tasting recipes.
  • Addressing safety and legal issues.
  • Our take on 3d food printing businesses.

All that in an open and immersive environment where we will be answering your doubts about 3d food printing. Each session is limited to 10 students, and registration is first come first serve.

The workshop will be held every day of the trade show at the following dates:

  • Tuesday 14 June 2016, 13:00-16:00
  • Wednesday 15 June 2016, 10:00-13:00
  • Thursday 16 June 2016, 10:00-13:00

Follow the link to get the registration info: 3D Food Printing Workshop Registration Form

If you are considering to come, remember that 3d food printing is about food and food is emotion.

Huge shoutout to the FabCon team and the 3DC community, we appreciate your support more than you even know!

We are extremely excited for this 3D food printing workshop and can not wait for it.

Hope to see you there!

Luis + Jason
