Bocusini Announces Plug & Play Food 3D Printing Platform

Until now, there has been no universal food printer available in in the worldwide market. With dozens of different food categories (i.e. confectionary, bakery products, dairy products, fruit & vegetable as well as meat or snack products) and hundreds of individual foods, food printing was considered very difficult to implement, and available food printers are mostly limited to a very small range of foods.

Print2Taste, a young German startup company, took a different route. Founded by experienced food researchers, the company first optimized food textures for dozens of food categories in a way that they all become printable by the same, most simple FDM-based printing technology.

This formed the basis for the company’s development of an open source food printing system for gastronomy and end users consisting of cartridges with printable food, a food printer head and an intuitive user interface. Thus, the world’s first universal plug & play food printing system Bocusini was born. Loaded with prefilled food caps (commercially available or individually filled) within seconds, all kinds of 3D objects or artwork can be easily created on a tablet or smartphone and may be instantaneously printed via WIFI interface. With this complete out of the box system, no software installation is needed.

On April 21st, the Bocusini system has been officially presented at the first European 3D Food Printing Conference in Venlo. On May 12th a Kickstarter campaign started with a complete food printing system as well as retrofit kits for different open source printer platforms.

The Plug & Play Printing System comes along with the first 3D food printing online platform. With this platform the food printing community will be provided with nice proposals for printing their own food creations. Users will be taken to “food worlds” – where they will discover plenty of creative ideas how food printing could be applied to different areas of cooking, find delicious recipes including printable food products, 3D print files for download, user instructions and recommendations concerning food printing.
