Example text

CJP 3D printers generally build objects from a proprietary, gypsum-based powder called VisiJet PXL. Hence, while VisiJet PXL printouts may on occasion be used as printed (for example as display models), most need to undergo some form of post processing. This is called ‘infiltration’, and involves brushing, spraying or otherwise coating an object with a chemical that will fill in microscopic air pockets and seal its surface. Objects that will receive minimal handling can simply be cured with a solution of salt and water.

As we will see in chapter 4, BAAM hardware has already been used to make several full-size car bodies. In other words, when you look at a printed object up close it can be very obvious that it has been built in layers. This may be particularly apparent on sloping or curved surfaces. 3 provides a simple illustration of what a pyramid produced via thermoplastic extrusion may look like in comparison to one made using traditional injection molding techniques. Whether or not an object will appear stepped depends on the resolution and accuracy of the 3D printer that created it.

Focusing solely on chocolate, a company called Choc Edge manufacture a desktop 3D printer called the Choc Creator. The first version of this went on sale in 2012 as the world’s first commercial food printer. The printer is capable of producing logos and simple 3D models, with its edible creations having already included Christmas trees, bells, snowflakes, snowmen and scanned human faces. Two years later, and we are still waiting for it to be ‘ready’. This lack of delivery is also not uncommon in the very young food printing marketplace.
