How to build a 3D printer that can make a cake from scratch
A DIY 3D-printed cake maker might be out of reach for most of us, but it could soon be possible to make cakes from scratch using a Raspberry Pi 3B or a Raspberry Mini 3B.
A 3D printing startup called Baker’s Brick, founded by two Australian men, is aiming to bring the concept of a DIY 3d printer to the mass market.
In a video on the company’s website, the founders explain that the process of making cakes using a 3d-printed 3D model is fairly straightforward.
For example, you need a 3-D printer to print out the shape of the cake, which is made up of layers of layers, such as the filling and the icing.
Then, you use an Arduino or similar platform to print the cake out.
The cake itself is printed in ABS plastic, and then the ABS layer is removed using a heated object such as a cake grater or a steamer.
After that, the cake is assembled in a cake booth.
Baker’s has set itself the goal of creating a full-scale 3D printed cake, but for now, it’s only making a small amount of cakes at the moment.
The startup says it’s working on making a larger batch of 10,000 cakes in the next few months, but the company is aiming for a total of 150,000 3D printers worldwide.
For the time being, however, the company has focused on making smaller batches.
Bakers Brick currently offers the 3D print software that it developed, which lets users print a cake as an animated cake that can be manipulated by the user.
It also makes the ABS cake-printing tool, which it has also been working on since 2014.
In the future, Bakers Brick hopes to make its cake-making software more customizable, allowing the user to customize the size and shape of each cake, or even the type of cake they’d like to make.
Bakers brick says that its software can also be modified to allow it to make a smaller quantity of a cake, as well as print a different layer on top of the original layer.
As for the future of 3D cake printing, the startup is already working on a number of other 3D projects, including 3D food printing, 3D medical printing, and 3D 3D tattoo printing.
