Jeez, I was -playing- around with some 3D sugar modeling and Evil Mad Scientist just totally demolished me in the sweetest way possible…

In February we gave a sneak preview of our project to construct a home-built three dimensional fabricator. Our design goals were (1) a low cost design leveraging recycled components (2) large printable volume emphasized over high resolution, and (3) ability to use low-cost printing media including granulated sugar. We are extremely pleased to be able to report that it has been a success: Our three dimensional fabricator is now fully operational and we have used it to print several large, low-resolution, objects out of pure sugar.

The CandyFab 4000 will be at Maker Faire, of course.
