Most of you know me for my laser cutting work, however my other passion is additive manufacturing or 3D printing as it is commonly known. I have worked in this industry for a large portion of my career and use it on a daily bases to create parts, models and end user products.
Some time ago I started researching how to 3d print sugar. Using my powder based system I optimised it to be able to create 3d printed models made completely from sugar. Best part is you can eat it too!!
This opens up a world of opportunity.
This is a example of a model I created last week.
My plans are to continue developing the system and working to a better end product.
You could say my job is pretty sweet.
Come and visit us at 3dchef and see our latest edible 3d prints.
Another laser project. This time again in sugar.
You can create the sweetest little things.
Can you laser engrave a potato to make an ink stamp?
Yes you can. It worked really well too…
Heres a quick one.
I recently made this laser engraved graphic for the front of a sketch book for a friend of mine who loves to draw.
Its a simple thing that takes an ordinary sketch book and makes it something cool and personal.
Throw on a few mushi tapes, buttons, stickers what ever you like and Vola, instant success and hours of drawing pleasure!!
I have not posted for a while until I had a brain wave for this Valentine’s Day.
A sugar printed heart ring for my sweet heart using just my laser cutter.
I had done sugar rings earlier but now I made a more elaborate setup for better layer control.
I am quite happy. Each ring takes about 2 minutes to create.
Recently I was asked if I could custom design and make wedding invitations for a friends big day.
Naturally I replied: I will.
After sitting down with the client and discussing their wishes I set to work on creating just that.
They had set a few things such as the date being incorporated an old castle theme and line work. The rest was up to creative expression.
Combining their first initials with the date and a castle logo was the first step. Then I combined that with the fine scroll work in the corners and the continuous line work to complete the front of the card.
On the inside of the card I also created an elegant scroll that not only presents the text but also holds the inner card in place.
Each card is made up of 2 parts. The outer white card was laser cut and the inner red card was printed, cut and glued into position.
This creates the contrast colour face of the card and allows for the red card to flow through the center.
These invites can be as simple or complex as you choose and it only limited by your imagination.
