The German company Print2Taste is about to launch their food 3D printer on Kickstarter.
April 27, 2015: The team of Print2Taste has been developing tailor-made printed food solutions for their customers in the past 20 years. They have not only specialised in the process itself but also in developing printable food pastes such as chocolate, jelly, marzipan, vegetable purees or liver paté.
Now Print2Taste is about to release their Bocusini food 3D printer as well as an extruder kit to modify your existing 3D printer. Their campaign will start on May 12, but you can already get a first impression on what kind of delicious creations the device is capable of producing in the following video:
May 12, 2015: Print2Taste to launch Kickstarter campaign
Print2Taste is going to launch a Kickstarter campaign for its Bocusini 3D food printer today at 10 am (CET). The preview page is already online.
Early backers will be able to save as much as 40%, with the Bocusini Junior plug&play device being offered at € 549. In addition to the two versions Bocusini Junior (build volume: 100 x 100 x 130 mm) and Bocusini Pro (build volume 150 x 150 x 150 mm), Print2Taste will also offer a retrofit food printer head kit that will work on several open source 3D printer models (so far Ultimaker 2 and Printrbot Simple Wood and Metal).
Their Kickstarter offers also include several pre-filled Bocusini capsules and food refill kits. Continuously adding new food products, the company has so far developed 30 different printable food products in the categories confectionary, bakery, snacks, fruit & vegetable, meat and dairy. The company has also launched their website, featuring recipes, printable food designs, preparation and serving instructions and downloadable templates to provide you with “everything needed for your easy access to the world of 3D food printing.”
All parts of the WIFI enabled food printing systems will be open source. An intuitive user interface allows you to create your own objects on your tablet or smartphone without any prior software installation.
Print2Taste describes the process in three easy steps:
- Load the bocusini food printer with a food capsule of your choice
- Create your own design or download a printing template onto your smart device and select the printing conditions for your food capsule
- Put your plate to the printer and start printing.
Their funding goal is set to € 30,000 with first printers to be shipped in January next year.
