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

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!

New 3D Food Printing Kickstarters….

We’re always happy when we see somebody take the leap into 3D food printing!

On that note we want to let you know that there are two brand-spanking new 3D food printing crowdfunding campaigns that use/will use/want to use 3DFP as a new business.  We have made contact with Martin from SCOFF3D and it looks like we will be in touch very soon.

Here is a very brief rundown and a link for you to check them out for yourself.  Please be aware that crowdfunding campaigns are a little risky as most people are still in the concept phase of their idea when they launch these.  I’m pretty positive that the 3DC community knows that there has been VERY little succes for 3DFP in crowdfunding so make sure to do your due-dilligence before backing any crowdfunding campaign, 3DFP or not.

3DFP Roadtrip 2015 Series: PancakeBot Private Viewing

We ❤ PancakeBot!

If you’ve been following the digital cooking world as of late you should be more than aware of Miguel and his awesome PancakeBot, and  if you’re a backer of the Kickstarter campaign earlier in the year then you should be salivating right about now because the news just dropped that it will be shipping your way soon!

We couldn’t wait …

Of course we reached out to Miguel before our 3D Food Printing Roadtrip to see if he was even going to be in town and to co-ordinate.  We tried to make it work and time everything as good as we could, but it almost didn’t happen.  

On to San Diego…

We’d just cleaned up after getting our minds blown at the Culinary Lab and went to catch our breath and have a banana at a nearby Safeway parking lot when Luis looked at me and said “Should we call Miguel?” and after a little pros and cons of the traffic situation during rush hour around the Los Angeles area we each took a step back, simultaneously jumped in the air and high-fived while yelling YOLO! (It was a sight to be seen.. hopefully by nobody else.. ever…)  

We jumped back in the Camaro and hit the road…. as far as we could before our first stau (traffic jam) which took all of about 5 minutes to get stuck in.

After about 3+ hours (normally about a 1 hour trip) and memorizing Drake’s Hotline Bling (after the 65th play in that timeframe) we finally came to the almost-bottom of the west coast, San Diego, found PancakeBot HQ, hugs and handshakes with Miguel and family and then straight into a hardcore geeking out session about the PancakeBot.

Finally getting the chance to meet in-person the inspiration behind the food printing wonder, Lily (his daughter) and meeting the rest of Miguel’s beautiful and awesome family (HUGE shout out and THANK YOU to his wife Runi for having us over) Earlier in the year Luis and I had the opportunity for an exclusive first look at the PancakeBot when we had Miguel on our 3D Food Printing Experts of the World Video Interview Series, check out that interview here: 3DFP VI#3 – PancakeBot Creator Miguel Valenzuela

Thank you to the Valenzuelas

Thank you again to Runi, Miguel and the whole family for inviting and accepting us in as if we we’re one of them!
