Last year, Dutch 3D printer manufacturer byFlow showed the world that its Focus 3D printer is not just portable, but delectable as well by 3D printing desserts at the Albert Hejin (AH XL) supermarket in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. Their technology was further demonstrated at the 3D Printshows in Paris, Rome, Madrid, London and Berlin. byFlow also went to London, where it hosted the first 3D printing restaurant in London. The delicious Dutch manufacturer has now announced that they will be taking their pop-up restaurant on a global tour, forming a new 3D printed food organization called Food Ink that will see a number of international designers, chefs, and technologists from London, Barcelona and Maastricht opening temporary 3D printing restaurants in various locations around the world.
The Focus 3D printer is not only foldable and capable of multi-material extrusion, but, through the use of easily changeable extruders, can 3D print viscous materials, such as clay, ceramic, silicon, and, of course, food, including hummus, meat, chocolate, goat cheese, pizza dough and more. Now that byFlow has connected with a number of innovators in the 3D printed food space, they’ve whipped up a completely 3D printed restaurant. These partners include 3D Samba, Spanish Michelin-star chef Mateo Blanch, 3DChef and 3DFP Ventures from London.Read more
