The price of 3D printers is constantly falling, and surprisingly, this is a chocolate printer that had appeared recently under the $100 mark.
This is an area where we necessarily did not expect 3D printing, and yet this is not the first time that this kind of printers are available. The ChocaByte presents itself as a printer able to produce 3D structures of Chocolate, all for the modest sum of $99. A very low price when you consider that one of its counterparts running through plastic extrusion still stagnating at around $600 for the entry-level models.
At this price, the printer even comes with a database of models to initiate quick impressions. However, it will work a little more with a printer plastic, since the chocolate cartridge (sold $10) must be heated in a water bath or microwave oven directly before positioning the printhead and then starting the machine.
10 minutes later, a piece of chocolate 2.5 x 5 cm can be obtained. Unfortunately, it will be quick to offer these ChocaByte since SolidIdea has not proposed more than 500 copies, each hand assembled in Sydney, Australia. You will also need be patient, as delivery can take up to 3 months.
