The Fabaroni is a 3D printing machine that constructs 3D models with pasta dough. Fabaroni’s gantry has a moving Z-stage and a head with pasta-extruder moving in the X-Y directions. Fabaroni takes STL files as input, processes them using Python, and prints to the machine via 6 printed circuit boards.
Fabaroni was created in the How to Make (Almost) Anything Class of Fall 2007. It is a WORK IN PROGRESS and documentation on this site is not entirely complete. Our sympathetic thoughts are with anyone who attempts to construct their own from our documentation.
