It seems 3D printing can take you anywhere, even to a transport and logistics trade show. Recently we were asked to do our chocolate printing thing for the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transportation (CILT) on their stand at Multimodal 2014, at Birmingham's NEC. Although the event was unrelated to what we do people were still fascinated by the machine proving that everybody loves chocolate, no matter what they're line of business.

In terms of printing we did a lot of logos but also tried out some more 3D shapes at an event for the first time. These included a plane, a train and a truck and a boat (which didn't work so well and needs some refinement).

We even got to present the CILT logo in chocolate to the man who helped designed it (above), allowing him to taste it for the first time.

It's not everyday you get an email from one of the world's leading phone manufacturers to help them celebrate Easter but that's what happened last week. For a special holiday treat for its social media channels Nokia wanted to produce a video showing off 3D printing, with a chocolatey Nokia twist, and so they turned to Choc Edge for some help.

Because Nokia wanted to mass produce something that also provided a substantial bite of chocolate we decided to print the Nokia logo. Over 30 were printed over the course of the Thursday before Good Friday and distributed to influential bloggers. The process was filmed and Choc Edge designer Mark Jones was interviewed to make the video.

 

 

 

Although one of our most ambitious events yet everything went without a hitch and the video provides a great demonstration of the Choc Creator V1 in action.

Inevitably the hashtag used for the campaign was "#Chokia" and the video seemed to generate a good response from the tech community with coverage on phone blogs and 3D printing sites.

In the future we hope to be able to print a 3D Lumia phone, to show off the printer's full 3D capabilities.

At the end of March Exeter's Westpoint arena was host to The Big Cake Show, and Choc Edge was there to add a technological twist.

The Big Cake Show is an event which sees professional cake-makers and baking enthusiasts gather from all over the UK to celebrate the art of cake making. We were there to show the potential of the Choc Creator V1 as a cake decorating machine.

A number of celebrity chefs were in attendance including Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, and we even got to present Mary with a printout of her face in chocolate.

The reaction from the crowds was overwhelmingly positive with people genuinely amazed at what the machine could do. We had two printers on the go simultaneously and even managed to do some designs on the fly.

It was a really exciting event and great to see the public's reaction for the first time. The most popular print of the weekend was probably Mary Berry, even if a lot of people mistook for a certain Iron Lady who wasn't quite so sweet!
