3d food becomes more and more an experience… – Interview with Nina Hoff, byFlow

byFlow is a Dutch manufacturer of innovative 3D printers. The Focus of byFlow is the world’s first foldable 3Dprinter with fast exchanging printerheads to print a very wide range of printer materials.  This way it becomes possible in the future to print multilayered foods. Chocolate from multinational Barry Callebaut is used by byFlow to make foodprinting easier. Chocolate is a real challenge as it has many properties that have to be handled.  Nina Hoff is since 2010 involved in 3D printing via her dad and brother, the last one developed the initial idea out of frustration while developing 3D printers for food. Nina will speak about how 3D printing hacks the way we eat our dinner on June 28 during the 3D Food Printing Conference in Venlo.

“3D food printing is becoming quickly an experience people are looking forward to. 3D food printing has come a long way and still has much development ahead, but in a few years’ time it will become a household activity,” says Nina Hoff, Managing Director byFlow in Eindhoven. “Speed is an important hurdle for us, but has very much to do with the properties of the materials used for printing. Chocolate was our first basic material and proved to be rather difficult, but in the end we have mastered it.”

Printing in food is not as easy as printing in plastics, every material has his own design rules. The composition can change from day to day, like fresh fruits & vegetables. To go through the small nozzle while 3D Printing, some materials need to be melted, others need to be grounded. Some of them are to fluid and need to be mixed with stabilizers, others are to stiff and need to be mixed with fluids. Next to this the design of your dish is important for the experience and texture, printing lego cubes for children to let them play with their food, or a complex statue to amaze your customer.
