This 3d printer uses chocolate for material. How awesome isn’t that? Soon you will be able to go to a chocolate store with an image of your company logo or a relatives name and get that in an awesome 3d chocolate!

Research into 3D printing with chocolate has been ongoing at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. The team found chocolate to be an ideal material to work with since it melts easily, is inexpensive and can be re-melted so there is little to no waste. Melting and tempering the chocolate at the right temperatures is a challenge, but one that can be overcome. Even shapes as complex as a human face can be printed in detail!
