So let me break it down for you (layer by layer)
The first step of every “solid imaging” project – as the name was originally dubbed by inventor Chuck Hull – is using 3D printing software, or computer aided design (CAD) software, to create your digital blueprint and send it off a 3D printer to have it created layer by layer.
In this day and age, businesses big and small are utilizing the technology of 3D printing to take their ideas from the boardroom to the design table in just hours. Some people have taken it a step further. They’ve started eating their masterpieces. (Just quietly, we’re okay with it.)
Even NASA has experimented with 3D printers to create food.
Usually, 3D printers use material from one cartridge, but in the case of food experimentation a printer relies on multiple cartridges at once to combine materials like dough, cheese and sauce!
If you had to eat 3D printed food for five years, what would be your go-to meal? Let us know if the comments below.
