Luis Rodriguez Alcalde is the founder of 3DigitalCooks, and the Barcelona man has joined his passions for food and rapid prototyping to create “a unique and customized eating experience.”
His latest project is a Cartridge Extruder to help users transform their interaction with food by merging food with technology.
“Our main focus relys on developing digital cooking tech that is easy to use for everybody,” Alcalde says. “We strongly believe that the best way to pursue our vision is through sharing everything with the community. Therefore 3DC commits to promote, connect and share with anybody involved in the field with a great project, idea or suggestion.”
That’s why he’s shared the plans for his Cartridge Extruder on Instructables, and he says it’s his first experience using a laser cutter to build a device.
The project is, not surprisingly given Alcalde’s love of food, a 3D food printing tool he developed while studying at Pier 9. He also built a stand to hold the extruder, and the parts for that were laser cut as well.Read more
