It is truly inspiring every single time I found someone, with the willingness to learn and the tenacity to work on 3d food printing. In this case Evan Weinstein decided to work in the holy grail of 3DFP problems. Printing Chocolate.
Greatest part is that he is sharing a lot of his work! Specially the how to’s and the evolution of his project. Very little people those that so we eternally appreciate his effort.
VISIT HIS WEBSITE for more info. There you will find interesting videos. Like how he milled his nozzle:
Or his first iteration design review.
Looking forward to next year Maker Faire to see what he surprises us with 🙂
Back after a period of dead silence. I hope you all are alright. Today we have a recent interview I did with Lynette Kucsma (Sorry again, I always misspelled her surname) during the visit I did to Natural Machines a few weeks ago.
During our awesome time at Messe Erfurt, we got the chance to meet (again for Jason) (first time for Luis) with Daniel Wilkens. Daniel is the mastermind behind message in a cake. A one of of a kind creator that put together a printer to print not just cakes. But cakes that has hidden messages!! Please watch the whole video, and specially last part when Jason cuts the cake and you get to “experience” the surprise from what stays secretly in the cake.
Video interviews are back! This time we get the chance to talk with Mark Jones from Choc Edge.If you want to know more about one of the oldest companies in the game. This is your interview. Totally worthy to watch it to learn more about Choc Edge get some insides on how their printers work and enjoy the knowledge from Mark!
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!
It is always a great time when we get the chance to listen to peoples passion and work.
Having been following them for a while it was great to hear and learn more about Melt Icepops. Learning, researching, testing, scaling up,… they are simple on fire. Worthy to keep on eye on. Probably one of the first (and coolest) custom experience food design companies out there taking advantage of 3d printing.
Jeffrey is being involved in 3DFP for a few years already as part of the Fab@Home‘s team, getting the chance to work with great chefs as Dave Arnold and seeing one of their printers feeding employees @Google’s HQs. Lots to learn from him.
