What is 3D chocolate printing and how exactly does it work?
This question is answered in great detail in our FAQ section. Put simply, 3D chocolate printing is similar to 3D plastic printing, which itself is based on traditional CNC technology. Instead of printing in plastic, our Choc Creator system allows you to print drawings and miniature objects in chocolate. The process involves converting an idea for a piece of chocolate art into a 3D model, and then converting the 3D model into an instruction code (known as a 'G-code') for the Choc Creator to read - The code is automatically generated by a computer program called a slicer, because it slices a 3D model into layers and writes the printing instructions for each of these layers. [The slicer used by Choc Edge is best described as an advanced command line program with a basic STL visualizer.] Once the code is ready, it can be loaded into the Choc Creator and the object will be printed layer-by-layer. Although the slicer will automatically generate the code, the 3D model must be manually designed [sculpted using CAD software] by the user, or acquired from other sources.
