3D Chocolate Printer Interview with CTV Kitchener
Here is some off-the-floor coverage from our latest exhibit at the OCE Discovery Conference in Toronto in May!
BNN Interview with 3D Chocolateering
Here is a time-lapse of the 3D Chocolate Printer testing out some improved laser settings. The goal was to reduce thermal warping on the final object by applying less energy to the chocolate in a given area. This also caused the entire print to speed up! Check it out:
For those of going to the OCE Discovery Conference 2013 in the Toronto Convention Center on May 27 and 28th, look for our exhibit! We will be once again showcasing the capabilities of our 3D SLS Chocolate Printer using the always-delicious chocolate powder. Additionally, depending on current tests, we will be demonstrating the use of more a pragmatic print material: plastic.
For more information, check out OCE’s Discovery Conference.
The Mechatronics Design Symposium was a huge success! There was vast interest in trying our chocolate samples and people couldn’t believe our results. Below is the team posing with our finished product and award winning poster (special thanks to Apple for sponsoring the award).
