Second part of our 3D Food Printing conference experience. Enjoy!
Eighth on stage was Luis Fraguada, Robots In Gastronomy. Presented his thoughts on When will we 3D print our food?. With his view on how to avoid 3DFP suffering the waffle maker effect (appliances that we never used). Also stating that printing needs to be intuitive, and to get there professional kitchens will be the early adopters.
Ninth was Jeffrey Lipton, Researcher as PhD candidate from Cornell University / Seraph Robotics. Going through his experience with professional chefs such as Dave Arnold, explained the importance of defining digital recipes that adapt to technology and help create more custom results.
Tenth on stage was Melanie Senger from University of applied science Weihenstephan Triesdorf. She introduced the fifth characteristics they are using to finetune printing food materials: texture, temperature, flow, procession and fortificaltion. Her vision on using phenotyping to leverage the custom 3dfp printing experience was really interesting.
Last but not least was Frits Hoff, Chairman Board Fablab Benelux and Fablab Maastricht. He closed the conferences talks explaining about the experience behind 3DFP. Introducing the ByFlow printer and introducing their work on a new chocolate printer.
The event had different breaks were we had the chance to connect with really interesting people realated-interested-passionated about 3DFP.
Print2Taste also was presenting their Bocusini printer and food syringes.
Julian Sing from 3dChef was showing their 3d food prints. Tempered chocolate, sugar and honey was some of the treats they brought to the event.
