chocedge-plane3D Printing of food has become quite the story as of late. We have seen 3D Systems’ ChefJet sugar printer, as well as the Foodini food printer create edible works of art that we would have never imagined prior to this technology’s emergence. Within the next couple of years, we can fully expect to see the art of 3D printing food take a much larger role in culinary preparation.

A company called Choc Edge, known for their Choc Creator 3D printer, which was released in 2012 as the world’s first commercially available chocolate 3D printer, hopes to be at the forefront of this coming wave of culinary 3D printing. The Choc Creator is a printer that can print both 2D and 3D objects using chocolate. They have just announced the unveiling of their Choc Creator V2.

Choc Creator V2 comes complete with a new housing, a larger syringe, and a specialized heating element which is designed to keep the chocolate at just the right temperature for printing. This allows the printer to print larger objects, that take longer to produce.

chocedge-emblem“Since we launched the original Choc Creator two years ago we’ve been constantly striving to develop the technology to make it even easier to use, so it can create ever-more stunning 3D and 2D designs in chocolate,” explained Dr Liang Hao, founder of Choc Edge. “We were thrilled that we gained a worldwide following for the Choc Creator, and believe we helped to bring the fantastic technology behind 3D printing to a wider audience.”

The Choc Creator V2 is priced at £3,888 GPB (approx $6630), and is currently available for pre-order in America, Europe, Astralia and Africa. This latest chocolate 3D printer was unveiled by Choc Edge Business Development Director, Christina Zheng at the 3D printing conference in Qingdao, China last week. It took the company over 1 full year to develop and test, and they now feel it is ready to hit the market.

What do you think? Will a printer like this catch on for restaurants, culinary institutions, marketing companies and confectionists? Discuss in the Choc Creator V2 forum thread on 3DPB.com.
