Print4Taste first debuted their mycusini 3D chocolate printer on Kickstarter in 2019. A few months ago, the company released the mycusini 2.0 – an upgraded version of the original. Prior to the Kickstarter campaign, the mycusini 3D chocolate printer was completely unknown, but is now a feature in many private kitchens around Europe.
Chocolate is a naturally good fit for amateur 3D printing, considering the physical properties that allow it to heat and melt easily, and cool at room temperature. Not to mention the affordability of the ‘filament’. The food industry, and particularly the baking industry, are well-suited markets for this technology that allows for completely customized designs, such as elaborate chocolate sculptures, bonbons, or simple chocolate ornaments, that, before 3D printing, have never been possible to create, and eat.
“Our customers immediately recognized that mycusini allows them to go beyond the limits of
manual work and to live out their creativity. In addition, it is very easy to use. The creation of
a chocolate object does not require any prior knowledge,” said Gerd Funk, CEO of Print4Taste GmbH.
The mycusini 2.0 has a base of 24 x 23cm and is no bigger than an average kitchen coffee machine. Each printer comes with free access to the mycusini Club – which provides users with the access to easily create their own 3D objects, individual lettering, and names.
The mycusini 2.0 features a large (3.5″/88.9mm) touch color display for quick access to the integrated template library with over 1,000 creative objects, including object previews, a multilingual user interface (German, English, Spanish, Italian, and French), an illuminated print area with dimensions of 90 x 90 x 45mm, easy cleaning thanks to rounded corners (production platform can be removed for cleaning, too), and prints with the company’s 3D Choco Refills.
The mycusini 3D Choco varieties include Dark Vegan, White, Pink, Blue, Dark, Dark Orange, Dark Raspberry, Dark Coconut, Green, and Yellow.
According to the mycusini website, the 3D Choco is highly economical – with one cartridge filling, the user can produce approximately 2-3 3D Choco objects, or 3-12 letterings, depending on the object size and height. One cartridge filling is, for example, enough for 12 Simon letterings, 4 piris, or 4 butterflies.
The mycusini 2.0 3D chocolate printer packages range from €578 to €720, and is currently available for purchase, with free shipping to German customers.
