    Nice ideas but I’m concerned about the toxicity of plastic used on 3D printing, is safe to be used with food ?

    1. Matt Stultz says:

      It depends on the type of plastic you use and what additives are in it. PLA tends to be fine for many food tasks, especially natural PLA that doesn’t have coloring agents in them. Taulman is working on a series of Nylons that will be FDA approved and perfectly food safe.

    2. Garret Hoffman says:

      Most of the materials on shapeways have a disclaimer that says they are not food safe…

      I think the only ones that are are the glazed ceramics… I would have to double check, but it kindof makes sense, since you’d typically use those for things like coffee mugs, etc…
