Choc Art Studio

Have you ever thought about opening up your own Chocolate Art Studio, or adding a Choc Creator to your existing studio?

Choc Art Studio is a concept launched in London back in 2015. It encourages anyone from established chocolatiers to new businesses to create a public or private space within their studio not only for producing 2D/3D creations for retail, but also for the purpose of offering an interactive experience with a Choc Creator.

Whereas some chocolate shops might create a corner in the store where customers can receive supervised interaction with the Choc Creator, others might choose only to run workshops in the evening, charging a small fee to the participants. 

Apps

Choc Edge provides our users with access to two very simple web-based apps for the purpose of practising with STL files. These tools have proven useful in helping new users to understand the STL > G-code conversion process, which plays an important role in creating your one's own designs.

MIX & MATCH

The basic 2D/2.5D STL template library

The Choc Edge MIX & MATCH web-based app is an enhanced version of the CHOC TEXT app which enables users to not only generate simple text but also match it to a selection of pre-rendered 2D/2.5D designs.

MIX & MATCH is a practice app which contains templates that can be downloaded in small, medium and large sizes. The idea of this app is to help novices understand the STL>G-code process, which is the first step towards creating one's own designs.  

  • Access 50 x 2D/2.5D designs in 3 sizes [Templates in STL format]
  • Combine different designs [Place 3 x small templates on the canvas]
  • Add text to existing designs [Experiment with customizing]
  • Choose from a range of themes [Quick access to seasonal designs]
  • Practice the STL > G-code slicing process
  • Simple enough for children to use



CHOC TEXT

Quick rendering of basic 2D STL text

CHOC TEXT is a simple web-based app that enables the conversion of a name, word or short message into an STL file. Once downloaded, the file can be opened in ChocPrint and a G-code suitable for chocolate printing can be generated. The results can be printed onto flat substrates such as chocolate bars or icing sheets. Due to its simplicity, this app has proved popular with children and at events when quick text rendering is required.

  • 3 different fonts
  • 3 different sizes
  • Add multiple words
  • Simple enough for childen to use
  • Practice the STL > G-code process

CHOC DRAW

2D single-line drawing/doodling Android app

CHOC DRAW is available to customers with Android tablets and enables 2D freehand drawing/doodling which is instantly converted into a G-code. Using a stylus, the user can draw on the canvas to create a design which can be printed instantly by sending the G-code to the printer wirelessly. To help users create more controlled doodles such as portraits, it is possible to import photos and images into CHOC DRAW for manual tracing, and the artwork created can be saved as a G-code for future use. Using single-line printing technology rather than the standard STL format, CHOCDRAW is quick and ideal for events, educational activities, workshops, and printing demonstrations.  

  • Android [Best suited to large 10.1 inch or larger devices]
  • Print drawings/doodles onto flat substrates or icing sheets
  • Manually trace photos to create caricatures
  • Quick-fire tool with preset parameters : No STL, No Slicing 
  • Simple enough for young childen to use
  • Connect to the Choc Creator V2.0 Plus via WiFi                                                                                                                                                                     

Choc Creator Events

Interested in becoming an events specialist and creating your own events business in your locale?

Please note: This is not a rental service - This concept focuses on you (the user) starting your own side business as a Choc Creator 'events specialist' - You (the user) provide the rental of your own Choc Creators. Sounds interesting? If so, get in touch. The Choc Creator has proven to provide an engaging one-of-a-kind experience for visitors and clients.

The images below are from previous events where both 3D printing technologists and chocolatiers have displayed their Choc Creators for the public to see.

Please note: The Choc Edge UK team will not be providing a Choc Creator rental service, team hire service, or bespoke chocolate service until further notice. Thank you for understanding.
