3D Chocolate Printer

Yet another exciting project I worked on at MIT's 10th International FabLab Fab10 Conference. At this conference, a workshop was conduted by the Ultimaker team teaching the audience how a 3D printer is assembled-- There is a plastic strip that goes through a heating filament and outputs melted plastic that in turn solidifies under room temperature. Making a 3D printed output of your desired shape. But what if we replace that plastic with a tube filled with Nutella?

... and replace the plastic screen below with edible biscuits?

Eventually we have a 3D printer that uses Nutella as its key ingredient and prints the desired shape on an edible biscuit. Here it is...

Here is the glorious 3D Chocolate Printer in action!
