3D printing food is one of the implementation of the additive manufacturing technology that we constantly see on the Internet. This reflects the dream of taking the 3D printing technology to the food industry and use it to open more opportunities in this niche.
Most of the 3D printing food projects depend on one single idea, which is replacing the 3D printing materials with food, which is presented in a semi-liquid form.
The 3D printer head is replaced with a tube, cartridge, syringes or container that ensure injecting the food on a regular based during the printing similar to the 3D printed clay project we explored earlier.
Previously, we explored the 3D printing with sugar and how to create unique shapes that were not available using the normal manufacturing methods. Today’s project is another experience that use the 3D printing food technique to create delicious dishes of colors humus.
3D Printing food with colorful hummus project
The project is created by 3D printing enthusiast from Spain, Luis Rodriguez. In th last few years, Luis has researched how to use the 3D printing technology to create unique food. In his website, you can explore more about him and the experiments he created before the 3D printed humus project.
Luis used a Pinya 2 Delta-style 3D printer, which he built himself. As he mentioned any 3D printer with syringes, cartridges or capsules can be used in the project. Delta-style 3D printers can achieve this goal as it can accept this type of heads instead of the normal filament extrusion heads.
