Here is the latest coverage of our 3D Chocolate Printer with CTV Province Wide!
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).

Our last 3D Chocolate Print was off the chain! This interlocking chain shape is an example of a geometry that would be impossible to manufacture by conventional injection molding and even difficult for FDM 3D printers to accomplish. Check it out!
Hello Chocolate/Tech fans! We’re our way doing initial integrated testing on our Chocolate Laser Sintering 3D Printer! This involves tweaking the correct parameters to optimize the structural quality and deliciousness of the final object! Here is a small preview:
For those of you in the Waterloo area, come check out our Chocolate Printer Prototype at the University of Waterloo 2013 Mechatronics Fourth Year Design Symposium on Monday, March 18th! Hot Link. Here, along side our peers, we will be demonstrating our crafty creation, as well as gifting tasty sample 3D models, for those innovative enough to put the cutting edge of consumer 3D printing technology in their mouths.
